BIG OSCAR-a wire haired pointer mix is a solid healthy 82 pounds. He is housetrained, super good with dogs and kids, and loves being a good boy! He appreciates his crate, but that's something that will take time. He has already stolen his foster mom's heart, but she knows he needs his own family. He has not displayed prey drive, and at four years old, we feel he is pretty stable. Oscar has proven himself to be good at running when his foster family asks him to keep up with them, but he is more than happy to give up the marathon plans and go back to walking easily. He  enjoys hanging out on the couch with his foster mom and the other dogs in the foster home, too. In fact, he is a huge couch potato and is less inspired to be an athlete.   Oscar really likes other dogs, and needs to be one of at least two dogs in the household, to lessen his anxiety about being alone. He currently lives with three other dogs, a cat, and nice kids. Can you provide the same warm and loving environment for him?

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.
