Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center

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!

If you're missing your pup, be sure to check in with your local shelter. Remember: SVASC is the ONLY shelter in the Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County area that takes in stray dogs.

Please remember that none of these animals 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 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 animal, where they were found, and who to contact if they belong to you in the captions of each photo.

Please contact SVASC at (540) 943-5142 if you recognize any of these pets. Feel free to email Erin at with any questions regarding them.

Due to new cases of feline panleukopenia, we are extending our intake hold for cats until Thursday, August 18. We will only be intaking cats in emergency situations, such as those who are sick or injured.

Please note, feral/community cats and strays running at large are NOT considered an emergency. For non-emergency surrender needs, please explore the alternative resources available below or on our website at

For rehoming of pet cats, visit our website for information on private rehoming pages and local rescues, and for details on our Courtesy Post Program.
If you are in need of cat food, call the shelter during business hours and ask about our Community Assistance Pantry.
For financial support related to medical costs, please reach out to Animal Care Assistance Program (ACAP) or The Mosby Foundation.
For feral and/or community cats, please reach out to Cat's Cradle at (540) 433-1135.
