If you are interested in adopting Niko please call (804) 561-3878 to arrange to meet him. Adoption hours are Monday-Thursday: 1pm-5pm and Friday & Saturday: 1pm-4pm.

Dogs are claimed, adopted and rescued everyday so please contact us to check that this dog is available.

Virginia law says that we have to keep a dog for 5 days so that the owner can claim it before we can put the dog up for adoption. If you are interested in a particular dog before its available date please contact us. We would like a dog to go to a new home or rescue as soon as possible after its "available" date.

Our Adoption fee is $10 and all our animals come with a $25 Spay/Neuter/Rabies certificate to either Village Vet or Countryside Animal Clinic (this includes the exam, the surgery and the Rabies vaccine) thanks to a local Non-Profit, APAW (Amelia Patrons for Animal Welfare). State law requires that anyone adopting a shelter animal must have it spayed/neutered within 30 days of leaving the shelter. Virginia law requires that a sterilization agreement be signed. This agreement states that you will have the adopted animal sterilized within 30 days or by 6 months of age. If you do not live in a surrounding county, the dog or cat will have to be sterilized before it leaves our facility. All our animals come with a microchip and 30 day free trial of pet insurance. All puppies will have been started on vaccines and dewormed, and some of the older dogs have as well, depending on the situation.

For animals that have not been spayed or neutered: adoptions are open to residents of Amelia, Chesterfield, Powhatan, Cumberland, Prince Edward, Nottoway, Dinwiddie County. If an animal is already spayed or neutered then it is available to be adopted by anyone (even out of state residents). Phone to check that the dog is available and what paperwork is required from you.

Make sure that you are able to take your dog home on the day you adopt it. We will not keep a dog for you after its "available" day.
