Update 1/2/17: Jake was treated to cherry eye repair surgery last week, and he has recovered extremely well. The surgery was just what he needed to get up and around again, and not have to continually deal with eye drops daily, as well as "streaming" eyes. Everyone loves his attitude and his gentle ways. Here is what his foster mom wrote today:

"Jake is really doing well! He definitely sees a lot better since his surgery and he has become accustomed to being a house dog and family member! He follows us around especially in the kitchen and most nights looks to sit with us. He enjoys attention and loves nothing more than belly rubs! I had my doubts for awhile about his health but he really seems to feel much better. He is still mostly inactive with sparks of energy here and there but seems extremely content."


First posting: Jake's foster mom adores him! After two months, she provided this insight about his charming personality: He was taken to the shelter as a stray. We guess he is 10 years or older. Jake's coat is still growing back as he is recovering from a skin infection that caused hair loss. In addition  to getting Jake's skin healthy he had a complete dentistry so his remaining teeth are nice and clean.  He has severe vision loss and doesn't hear well either. His eyes do occasionally need drops to keep them moist. He has cher He gets around ok, but he can only manage a couple of steps in and out of the house. He is a gentle,  easy going guy that enjoys someone sitting with him and giving him belly and back rubs. He rarely barks. He gets along great with everyone.  He is very content to spend much of his day napping ( he especially likes to be outside napping when the day is nice). His other favorite pastime is eating! He will perk up if he smells dinner!  Jake would probably do best  with someone with an  easy going life style because he enjoys sleeping in and is a slow riser. He is very well house trained and is able to have run of the house while I am out. Jake does well with cats, and has wonderful social graces with other dogs of all ages and sizes. He is also fine with sweet, gentle children.  But he would give up other dogs as companions if he had only a human, and he would be perfectly happy and content to be the one and only friend in your household.

About Friends of Campbell County Animal Control

About Our Rescue Group...

Established in 2011 under the umbrella of another local rescue. FOAC filled the vacancy left by the local humane society when they ended their association with Campbell County Animal Control. FOAC became its own entity in 2012 and has grown to 300 volunteers. We work in partnership with Campbell County Animal Control, and as their guests at the shelter. We do not have our own shelter nor overhead expenses, and no paid employees.

Come Meet Our Pets...

FOAC vaccinates and deworms the dogs and cats at the Campbell County Shelter, which is open to the public from 12 to 5 weekdays and 11 to 4 on Saturdays. That address is 322 Dennis Riddle Drive, Rustburg, VA (behind Yellow Branch Elementary School.)

Available by appointment for visits are the dogs and cats noted as being in "foster care." We also visit Petsmart, Petco, and Sams Club locations in Lynchburg, VA, with our adoptable dogs and cats at various times.

Our Adoption Process...

We start with an application so our volunteers and fosters can have an idea of what the adopter is seeking. We ask that other pets in the home be spayed/neutered already if of appropriate age, current with rabies shots, and prefer use of heartworm preventive. We ask for a non-family personal reference as well as a vet reference to contact. We do home visits only if we feel it is vital to the pet's successful placement.

Applications are generally processed within 24 to 48 hours. Foster parents will contact the applicants to advise them of the progress of their application and to set up a meet and greet. Because volunteers work full-time jobs, contact is often made by email.

Fees to adopt range from $20 to $80 for cats, and from $75 to $300 for dogs. A contract requires that the adopter contact FOAC and return the pet to our care at any time if the adoption does not work out.
