If you have found an animal, you need to call the shelter (540) 943-5142 and make an appointment or you may call animal control in your area.

Animal Control:

Animals are kept for a period of 5 -10 days and then evaluated for temperament and health before becoming available for adoption.

Claiming a pet

Owners may claim their animals by contacting the shelter, and then paying the appropriate fine at the appropriate facility.  Animals brought in by Staunton and Waynesboro will need to be paid at the Police Departments and animals brought in by Augusta County will need to be paid at the Augusta County Government Center to the Treasurer.

Please call us at 540-943-5142 or email if you're missing an animal.
