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!

Happy Gotcha Day, Finn (formerly Stone Cold Steve Austin) 🙌👏💃🎉🎊

We pulled Finn from Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center a few months ago. He has been fostering with Donna and Greg Haynes. Today they made it official. Finn has his very own forever family ❤️❤️❤️

They sent us this happy update today along with the signed contract !….

“Steve Austin has been with us for one month today! “Stone Cold” just doesn’t fit this loving, affectionate hound so we’ve renamed him Finn. Finn loves treats of all kinds, napping on the porch, toys, exploring Richmond parks, the dog park and chasing squirrels up a tree. But hugs are his very favorite!!

Thanks so so much to you & everyone at Dogs Deserve Better Blue Ridge for helping us find each other!”

THANK YOU HAYNES FAMILY!!!

CITY OF STAUNTON Residents: We have had an increased intake of stray cats and need your help to get them back home.

If anyone has any information on the owners of the following animals, please have them contact us at 540-943-5142 or email us at tmeadows.svasc@gmail.com. The more shares, the more likely a lost pet could be reunited with their family and/or caretaker!

*Please click each individual photo for more information on the cat and location found.*

Let me know if you want to donate something and need help getting it to us or to the shelter (Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center)! They are very much in need of supplies and help!! Also, feel free to share this or use the Amazon link in the original post to donate as well.

Still operating without a director or adequate staff, or needed support from the districts they serve, they are seeking volunteers, fosters, adopters and advocates (to help spread the work about their adoptable animals, cause and needs). They are required to intake animals (lost, surrendered, legal, etc) and the facility they operate out of is truly inadequate for the size are they serve and the amazing work they do (in spite of this fact). Dave and I have been using our Sunday mornings to volunteer at the shelter and have helped with everything from doing dishes, laundry, walking/playing with animals, weed-eating paths and grounds, and more! There is plenty that they need help with and…
Here’s your chance to take a few minutes and get involved!

Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is in urgent need of supplies and volunteers. Here's their wish list, everything but dry kitten food is a priority. Underneath the list is a link to their Amazon wish list. I just took them small animal bedding, bleach, laundry soap, and pizza for moral support.

Please click and buy them something. If you can get out there even one hour for one day and clean something, please help! The way through tough times is to pitch in together.
