Hi everybody! Mellie is here to tell you that she can't believe she hasn't been adopted yet!! She wants to know what gives?! This is a sweet, smart, ADORABLE, furry ball of fun, folks! Mellie is about 1.5 yrs old, 26 lbs and is good with other dogs, cats and kids! She is spayed, vaccinated, crate trained, (mostly) housebroken and rides well in the car. Mellie is not a high energy dog but she IS highly exuberant especially when first meeting new people. She is very treat and toy motivated and LOVES to learn but is probably not the right fit for a family with young children or very small dogs just because of her rough and tumble play style. Miss Mellie is loving her time here in foster care but would *really love* to finally find a home of her own! If you would like to schedule a meet and greet to see if Mellie might be the perfect addition to your home . . . Please get in touch via private message. You can also fill out an adoption application or inquiry through the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center website (svasc.net) or Petfinder.com. And as always . . Please SHARE this sweet girl so we can find her that perfect home!

Here is your LOCAL SHELTER DOG of the day! Please SHARE!

Hi! My name is Edison! Did I invent the light bulb? No. The phonograph? That wasn't me! Motion picture camera? Not me either!

I need your help to make me famous and get me out of this shelter! I am about two years old and I'm a really charming guy! I'm pretty and clean and I like to play with toys when I get out of my cage!

Right now, I live at Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center and I need a foster, rescue or adopter to take me home! They are having a big adoption event this weekend so come meet me and all the other dogs and cats who need a family to love!

Visit svasc.net to see a whole big, long list of dogs and cats who need savin'!

Poor little guy. Maybe someone could swing by sometime and take him for an outing to the park. Wouldn’t that be nice! 😉

SHORT TERM. MEDICAL FOSTER NEEDED FOR Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center!

Mingus wound up in the hooch and he needs our help!

His knee is all jacked up and he is going to need someone who can keep him in a crate and leash walk him for at least 2 weeks post surgery!

The amazing Dr. Nice Commonwealth Veterinary Clinic has offered to match the cost that a nearby, low-cost clinic would charge for this surgery! He will get his knee fixed on 4/26 or before and we have to have a place for him to recover!

(Information from Helping Hands...and we love them too!)
Medial Patella Luxation (MPL) – Mingus is a Grade 3

The patella is the medical name for the knee cap. A luxating patella occurs when the knee cap slips in and out of the groove it normally resides in. Most often in pets it slips medially (towards the other leg). The type of repair needed is determined by the amount of lameness your pet is exhibiting and how far the knee cap slips out of the joint. We will utilize the best procedure(s) to repair your pet’s knee and return them to full function. We repair Grade 1 through Grade 3 luxations. Grade 4 luxations require cutting and moving of bone (tibial crest transpositions). Therefore, we are unable to repair Grade 4 luxations. Crate rest for the first 2 weeks is mandatory. It is the only way we can ensure your pet will not place any jumping or jarring motions on the knee during the recovery period. Physical therapy through your regular full service veterinarian, may be needed to help these pets regain full function of the leg.

Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center shared Wright Way Hyundai's post — feeling blessed.

Wright Way Hyundai
Wright Way Hyundai has saved the day! We completely ran out of litter and if it weren't for Chris Mason, the GM of this wonderful business we would be in crisis mode! Luckily they donated an entire pallet of kitty litter for our critters to use! Join us in thanking them by sharing this post,and next time you are looking to purchase a car, make sure you do it the Wright Way! 😉

Our spay/neuter shuttle with Angels of Assisi that was scheduled for tomorrow, April 18th, has been cancelled. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough animals signed up. We do have a reschedule date of May 9th and there are several spots available. So if you have a pet that needs to be altered, please give us a call so we can sign you up! We have transports to Roanoke twice a month so if you can’t make it this time, we can let you know when the next date is! 540-943-5142 ... See MoreSee Less

*Update* - Although we were able to find a foster that could take Beverly, unfortunately, help came too late. Sweet Beverly passed away this afternoon. Please, continue to share. This could give a family closure. 🙁

We need help finding the owner to this precious old girl! She was found on Churchville Ave in Staunton, walking in circles. We know it’s a long shot, but if anyone knows who she belongs to, please have them contact us! We would really love for her to be back home. She is blind and isn’t doing well here. All it takes is a second to SHARE – just think, what if this was your baby? Wouldn’t you want to know where s/he is? 540-943-5142

Just look at that smile! What turned that frown upside down? Chloe found a foster home over the weekend! We have learned so much about Chloe from her foster Jean Fraser that we can now say that this girl is just about perfect!

Chloe is great with dogs and cats! We already knew she loved all people including children, so if your looking for a pup that meets all of this criteria, please let us know that you would like to meet her.

And maybe make it easier for people to adopt!! I tried almost two years ago to adopt a small dog from there that my animal control officer told me about and was told that there was a lady that would be getting the dog even though it is a first come first serve bases shelter! I would love to help but things like this have put a bad taste in my mouth for sure!!! And was told this was not the first time that had happened!!! I wish you guys the best of luck!! Prayers for the animals as well and hope they find their furever homes!!!
