Adoption Information

To adopt an animal from SVASC, you will need to fill out an adoption application. Upon approval, there is a non-refundable adoption fee.

Virginia state law requires any dog or cat adopted from a shelter or rescue group, must be sterilized. §3.2-6574

Dogs are $175. The fee includes spay/neuter, all vaccinations (DAPP, bordetella, rabies), flea and tick preventatives, deworming, heartworm testing, and microchip!

Cats are $35. The fee is for cats that are already altered and includes all vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies) deworming, flea & tick preventatives, earmite treatment if necessary, and microchip!  Combo testing available upon request for an additional $15. Cats that have not been altered will become the new owners’ responsibility.

Out of the area adoptions are welcome, but the animal would need to be spayed/neutered prior to going to its new home. 

Please remember that in the City of Staunton and Augusta County, there is a limit of four dogs per household. You must have a special use permit if you are over the limit.
