Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center

Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is an open admissions animal shelter and is home to dozens of animals looking for their forever homes. We are a Municipal pound for Augusta County, Staunton, and Waynesboro so we take in all strays, abandoned animals, and owner surrenders. Our shelters current save rate is 95 percent, which is the direct result of our dedicated staff and volunteers working hard to finding these animals their forever homes. Please call the shelter with any questions regarding animals found on the website for more information. We are always in need of donations. Things we need are bleach, laundry detergent, cat and dog food (wet or dry), puppy and kitten food, kitten milk replacer, paper towels, blankets, beds, toys, wash cloths, towels, crates, and of course monetary donations.

My fiancé and I adopted our sweet boy in October of 2018, on Halloween day! He has been an absolute joy to have, and we truly couldn’t imagine our lives without him! Thank you so much to the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services for bringing our sweet Pickles into our lives 💕

Meet one of our only available dogs, Pistachio!

Pistachio is a 5 year old Dogo Argentino that was surrendered to SVASC because he and the other dogs in the home weren't getting along. He came to SVASC with some pretty severe wounds covering his face and neck from where he had been attacked by one of the other dogs in the home, but he's on the mend now, so he's ready to find a home!

Pistachio is house-trained, but does need some work on his house manners. He can be a little pushy. He is a large dog and doesn't always understand his size, so he would do best in a home without kids. He would also be best suited for a home without other animals.

If you're interested in giving Pistachio the home that he deserves, give us a call at (540) 943-5142 or email Erin at Please remember that SVASC is open by appointment only and does require an approved application before coming to visit. Call ahead, please!

Two days ago we found an orphaned kitten in the middle of Rt. 11. The mother was hit and on the side of the road. Do you have volunteers or know of someone locally that foster and take care of these little ones? I think it is about 2-3 weeks old. Thank you.

Replace 'people' with 'abandoned pets' in this case.
Love you guys!!!
Please, remember to take care of yourselves, too.
