Who We Are

We are a county facility. We try to find all the animals a loving, lifelong home.

Adopting a best friend

Adoption Hours: 12:00-4:00 Tuesday - Saturday
Adoption Fees:
Small Animals-$20.00

This fee includes Spay/Neuter procedure, a 1 year Rabies Vaccine and a heart-worm test for dogs.

Spotsylvania County Animal Shelter only adopts to Spotsylvania County Residents if the animal is under 16 weeks of age. If you live in any other county or another state, the animal must be altered before leaving Spotsylvania Animal Shelter.

All adoptions are based on a first-come first-serve basis on the day the animal is available. You must be at least 18 years of age and provide a current ID. Also, if you have any other pets or children, we suggest that you bring them in to visit before adoption. Most of our animals are strays and we can only guess by observing the behavior of the animal in the kennel/cage and interaction by the shelter staff, whether they are good with other animals or children.
