Special COVID-19 Message...

The services and care provided at SVASC are regarded as essential and will be maintained during the Coronavirus Pandemic to the greatest extent possible. Protecting the health and safety of the employees is essential to successfully meet the goal of sustained service. To that end, as with other governmental services, we are asking that citizens and customers make an effort to conduct business by telephone or online. Here are some guidelines for the delivery of service in the near term:

  1. Adoptions and fosters by appointment only. An approved application is required prior to scheduling an appointment. Once your application has been approved, a SVASC staff member will be in touch to schedule your appointment.
  2. We encourage owners who are surrendering their pets to call the shelter at 540-943-5142 and schedule an appointment.
  3. When it is necessary to conduct business in person, we ask that you utilize the window service area located on our front porch.

Fostering an animal provides a wonderful break from the shelter.

Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is the municipal animal shelter for the City of Staunton, City of Waynesboro and Augusta County.

We are an open admission shelter that takes in all stray, abandoned, and owner surrendered animals from our service area. Our staff strive to improve the lives of people and pets in our community. We offer several community minded programs such as low-cost spay/neuter, pet food assistance, and responsible pet rehoming services. We are always here to help!
