Donate to Amelia County Animal Shelter

Each animal that comes in needs medical care that we do not have the funds for. Right now we only vaccinate puppies and kittens, and can only heartworm test when a rescue asks. Most of these medications and vaccines come out of our pockets and from other fundraising events. We would love to be able to provide vaccines, deworming, flea and tick medication and heartworm tests for everyone, but we need help. You can donate once, monthly, or for a specific dog you see in the shelter. You can sponsor one shot, or a whole dog. Every little bit counts! You can donate in person, or via PayPal (see below) or make out a check to APAW and send it to Amelia County Animal Shelter, PO Box A, Amelia VA 23002. APAW is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization so your donation is tax deductable.

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.
