The dogs at Amelia County Animal Control need our help! Please consider adopting, rescuing, networking and donating to help them find rescues/homes. Amelia County Animal Shelter is located in Amelia County, Virginia. They are a government run facility operated by the Amelia County Animal Control. Our Adoption fee is $10 and all our animals come with a low cost spay and neuter program ($5) thanks to a local Non-Profit, APAW (Amelia Patron's for Animal Welfare).
