Dogs Needing Homes in Amelia, Virginia
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. You must be 18 or older to adopt. To view the animals, you must be 18 or be accompanied by an adult.

Adoption fee for a dog or cat is $10 cash or check (non-refundable). There is no fee to fill out an adoption application. State law requires that anyone adopting a shelter animal must have it spayed/neutered. 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 $25 spay/neuter/rabies certificate.

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.

We operate on a first come, first served basis to qualified adopters which means WE DO NOT HOLD ANIMALS so you cannot reserve a dog over the phone or via e-mail.
