About SVASC – Shenandoah Valley Animal Services

Some of our volunteers by our spruced up sign

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. We have 40 dog runs and about 85 cat cages.

The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center began operation in September of 2011. Since opening, we have successfully lowered the euthanasia rates for our community!  While our staff work hard to find every animal a forever home, we are unable to guarantee the outcome of animals brought into the shelter. Please email the shelter with any questions regarding animals found on the website for more information.

We offer help to our community through education and assistance. With the help of other organizations we are able to spay/neuter animals in our community that the owners could otherwise not afford. With the help of our community we are on a mission to save every adoptable animal in our area.
