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.
Pepper and Mint are on the lookout for their new family! These brothers are bonded and really would like to find a home together. 2 is better than 1, right!?
Pepper and Mint are around 3 months old, sweet as can be, and love to play. They are very used to being handled by kids and are okay with other cats. They have also been introduced to dogs and should do okay with a cat-savvy dog companion.
For more information on how to adopt this pair, please email Tracey at email@example.com. They are currently in a foster home, so they are not located at SVASC.
Are you missing your pup? They may be at SVASC. Please share so that we can get these pups back home.
Please remember that none of these dogs are currently available for adoption and are currently looking for their families. Our website is updated daily with new, adoptable animals, so keep an eye out at svasc.net if you're looking to adopt a furry family member. These guys will be looking for homes if not reclaimed, so please be patient.
There are brief descriptions of each dog, where they were found, and who to contact if they belong to you in the captions of each photo.
Please contact SVASC via comment, PM, or (540) 943-5142 if you recognize any of these dogs. Feel free to email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the dogs.
Funfetti Cupcake is looking for an adopter outside of the state of VA.
We know that most of our followers are likely within the state, but we are hoping that Funfetti might just hit the right feed and find her forever home. This darling gal is estimated to be around 1-2 years old. She is thought to be a Shepherd x Border Collie and is just the sweetest thing you could ever meet.
Due to some prey drive, Funfetti has found herself in a position where she must relocate out of state. SVASC is happy to assist with transportation if you are unable to make it all the way to our facility. Funfetti is petite at around 35-40lbs, seems to be house-trained, is great on leash, and loves everyone that she meets. She is good with dogs and kids, but because of her prey drive, we recommend that she go to a home without kitties or other small animals.
For more information on how to adopt, comment, PM us, give us a call at (540) 943-5142, or email Erin at email@example.com.
Princess Mononoke is looking for transfer to a rescue partner out of state
Princess is a super sweet, 3 year old, female, Husky that came to SVASC recently as an owner surrender. Unfortunately, due to some prey drive, she has gotten herself into a bit of trouble and needs a pawsome rescue to bail her out.
Princess is an intact female and has not been spayed. Princess is UTD on her vaccines, microchipped, has been dewormed, and has been treated for fleas/ticks. Princess is Heartworm positive, though. Because of this, we are unable to adopt her out directly and unfortunately, cannot keep her in our care long term, through treatment.
Princess seems to do well around other dogs. She is very polite and friendly with people, so we feel that she would do well in a home with children or young people. Because of her prey drive, SVASC would recommend her for a home without cats, livestock, or other small animals.
For more information on Princess Mononoke or for information about transferring her to your adoption program, please email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org. SVASC is happy to assist with transport.
Oakley (neutered male) and Heidi (intact female) are looking for new homes before August 14th. Can you help?
Oakley is a very sweet boy with people that he knows, but can be very slow to warm up to new people. He will need a patient family that can take their time with him. He does get along with his sister, Heidi, but would otherwise need to be the only pet, as he does not get along with other dogs, cats, or small animals. He has always been an outside dog and has not experience being indoors. Additionally, he has never been on a leash.
Heidi is a super sweet, loving gal and is more confident than her brother. She would also do best in a patient family. Heidi gets along well with her brother Oakley, but does not do well with any other dogs, cats, or small animals. She should be okay around older, sturdy children. Heidi has never lived indoors, so she will need help with house-training. She has also never been on a leash.
These dogs are considered URGENT and MUST find a home before August 14th.
If you are interested in adopting one or both of these dogs, please go ahead and email the owner at email@example.com
Please remember to keep the comments polite and helpful. Oakley and Heidi are loved family members and their family does not want to rehome them.
Beautiful Haze is ready to find her home! This sweetie pie has raised her kittens and seen them off to their homes. Now it's her turn!
Haze is a very loving gal that would thrive as your one and only. She loves hanging out with her foster parents, getting all of the pets, and is described as being a low maintenance sweetie.
If you think Haze might be the gal for you please give us a call at (540) 943-5142 or email Tracey at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember that Haze is currently in a foster home and so she is not at SVASC.
