  1. SVASC is allowing visitors to walk through and look at the adoptable animals without an appointment. Unless you have an approvedĀ application on file, we may not be able to process an adoption same-day.
  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 text or call us from the parking lot so that we may send a staff member out to assist you.

We offer low cost spay and neuter services.


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!
