About SVASC – Shenandoah Valley Animal Services

Some of our volunteers by our spruced up sign

Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is the open-admission municipal animal shelter for Augusta County, Staunton and Waynesboro. We take in all stray, abandoned, and owner surrendered animals from these localities. 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!

How Far We've Come: The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center began operation in September of 2011. Since opening, we have successfully lowered the euthanasia rates for our community! Although our staff work hard to find every animal a forever home, we are unable to guarantee the outcome of every animal brought into the shelter.

Our Vision for the Future: It is our goal to be a model open-admission shelter that is truly a resource for the people and pets in our community. We are proud of our accomplishments over the past few years, and look forward to finding new and better ways to serve our community!
