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.
Mustang Sally is desperately looking for her special someone. This sweet, 1 year old gal, has spent the last 3 (almost 4) months in a shelter and that is just no place for a wonderful gal like her. Can someone be her super hero?
Buddy is looking for a new home. Buddy is a 1 year old Hound/mix that was adopted from SVASC as a puppy and has grown a bit too large for his current family, who was expecting him to stay small (woops!)
Buddy is an active dog with lots of energy. His adopters are a bit older and just can't keep up with his needs at this point. Buddy is house-trained, good with other dogs, and used to be around older children. He would be a good fit for an active family who can keep up with this fellas shenanigans.
For more information on Buddy, please email his current owner email@example.com

Are you missing your pup? SVASC has taken in oodles of stray dogs lately and we are hoping to reunite them with their families. Please SHARE so we can get these pups 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 or PM if you recognize any of these dogs. Feel free to email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the dogs.
