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. Our shelters current save rate is 95 percent, which is the direct result of our dedicated staff and volunteers working hard to finding these animals their forever homes. Please call the shelter with any questions regarding animals found on the website for more information.
We are always in need of donations. Things we need are bleach, laundry detergent, cat and dog food (wet or dry), puppy and kitten food, kitten milk replacer, paper towels, blankets, beds, toys, wash cloths, towels, crates, and of course monetary donations.
Pretty miss Topanga is here to remind you that SVASC will be closed on Thursday and Friday this week. We will reopen on Saturday with normal business hours (11am - 4pm).
Topanga is pretty bummed that she did not find a forever family to spend Thanksgiving with, but hopes she will have a family to cuddle up with on Christmas. If you are interested in bringing this sweet girl home, go ahead and fill out an application at www.svasc.net so that we can set up an adoption appointment for you!
Old cats anyone? Here at SVASC, we love our senior critters and try our best to ensure that they get the best retirement homes ever. Don't forget that November is #adoptaseniorpetmonth and boy, do we have the best kitties for you to adopt.
For more information on any of these cutie pies, give us a call at (540) 943-5142 or email Tracey at email@example.com
It’s been a gloomy day here at SVASC so we decided to liven things up a little with a pie eating contest!
On the left we have Sawyer, who knows pie day is the best day ever! In typical coonhound fashion Sawyer dug right into his pie, and was determined to lick his plate clean. His only hamper being his handler, who felt that any more pie would risk an upset tummy.
On the right is Patronus, who couldn’t quite grasp the concept at first and as a result was a little slow to the starting line. Patronus quickly understood the task at hand and dug right in, making sure to get every last bit of that delicious whipped cream!
Overall we crowned Sawyer as the winner of the pie eating contest, but both dogs deserve a 12/10 for being very good boys.
*Classic pumpkin pie is not safe for dogs to consume, so we made our own dog friendly pumpkin pie*
Check out some of our cutest boys! They are all looking for very special homes. All of these boys have had a rough go around and will need patient, loving, and calmer homes.
For more information on them, please give us a call at (540) 943-5142 or email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org. We know that some of these pups will be popular, so please understand that it may take some time for us to work through all of the applications.
