Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center

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.

Hi there! My name is Pompeii and I'm a 2 year oldish Coonhound that came to SVASC as a stray. I was running around in the woods for a few weeks before coming to the shelter so it’s taking me a bit to warm up, but I’m getting there! I'm a pretty shy guy, but I'm positive that I could really blossom in the right home. I need a calm, quiet home where I can gain some confidence so a home without children younger than teenagers would be best for me. I’d LOVE a home with another doggo though cuz I love having a buddy! I’m currently in a foster home so please contact the shelter to arrange a meet n greet! I'm so excited to find out what having a real family is like and I promise to do my bestest! I can’t wait to meet you!

Please share Pompeii to help us find him his forever home! ❤️🐾

Solo would really like to find a forever home soon. This handsome boy is starting to show some signs of kennel stress and is deteriorating quickly.

Solo got a break from the shelter last night and took a trip to the park to play and spent the night with a staff member. Here's what we learned about him!

- Solo is mostly house and crate trained
- He walks pretty good on leash
- Solo is great for car rides
- He's awesome with other dogs, big and small and would thrive in a home with other pups to play with
- Solo is very food motivated and enjoys using his noggin

Solo does have some leftover puppy behaviors. He likes to play chew on his people and does jump up. Because of this, he's not well suited for a home with young kids. That being said, SVASC is very happy to offer 3 free training sessions for Solo with our friends at PPK9 Training - A Dog's Way of Life with Stacey Payne to hopefully help to work through some of those behaviors.

If you're interested in meeting Solo, please give us a call at (540) 943-5142 or email Erin at ewiles.svasc@gmail.com

* UPDATE* Marge has been reunited with her family!

Do you recognize me?

This sweet lady just arrived at SVASC as a stray from Mill Creek Lane in Stuarts Draft. She was on the finders property for several days before being brought to the shelter. She is a spayed female who is approximately 10 years old. She is friendly, healthy, does NOT have mats in her fur and is free of fleas and ticks. We know this girl has a family who is looking for her!

Please SHARE this post far and wide so we can get her home!
