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 safety and health 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:
- Adoptions and fosters by appointment only. An approved application is required prior to scheduling an appointment. Once your application has been reviewed and approved by a SVASC staff member we will be in touch to schedule your appointment.
- We encourage owners who are surrendering their pets to call the shelter at 540-943-5142 and schedule an appointment.
- When it is necessary to conduct business in person, we ask that you utilize the window service area located on our front porch.
As conditions change, it may be necessary to further alter our service delivery plan, perhaps limiting services or prioritizing services. These decisions will be made with the health and safety of our patrons in mind and in measures and gradual manner.
