Ginger did not want to cooperate when it was photo shoot time, but we got a few of her! She's a younger Pitbull, a deep mahogany brown in color, and very sweet. She was truly emaciated when she arrived as a stray, with her backbone and hip bones showing,  and is enjoying full meals several times daily at the shelter. We look forward to getting to know her better! Like most pitties who appreciate their rescuers, she is awesome with humans of all ages, and is deeply attracted to active children.  She is working hard to be housetrained as she waits at the shelter for an adopter! She has been fine with some other dogs, but not others, but she will most definitely need a home with no cats! She hates cats!  She is also on the protective side, not wanting other dogs near her "ride," so we will continue to assess her needs as far as a placement.

Our process begins with an application, found on our website, Once your application has been received, a volunteer will call the references you list and then will contact you.

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.
