Who we are

The Clarke County Animal Shelter is a government run, "open door admission" shelter.
"Open door admission" means we receive animals regardless of their behavior, health or
level of adoptability, and that we do not turn away any UN-wanted or stray animals from
the towns and unincorporated communities of Berryville, Boyce, Millwood, White Post,
Waterloo, Calmes Neck, Frog Town, and parts of Bluemont. We are not considered a
no-kill shelter. The shelter takes in roughly 900 animals a year, with the totals growing
each year. We take GREAT pride in both: Keeping the shelter clean and inviting and
giving the animals in our facility the greatest love, care and attention as possible. The
shelter has 11 kennels for adoptable dogs. 11 kennels for stray dogs. 2 kennels for
nursing dogs. 2 kennels for the quarantine dogs. We have a main cat room that can
hold 14 cats for adoption. A cat condo that can house 5-6 cats. Stray cat room that can
hold 14 stray cats. Cat isolation room that can house 8 cats. This is all managed by two full
time employees and a few volunteers. Along with a small facility comes a small budget.
Our local Humane foundation helps us with the unexpected and emergency vet bills.
And for spaying and neutering of the shelter animals. If you would like to help? Be a
regular donor! Your donations will help with the present and future care of the animals
at our shelter.The Clarke county humane foundation: Po Box 713 Berryville, VA 22611.

Pet of the Week
"Boots & Bubba"

This brother and sister duo came in on 4-30-17.
Their family brought them in when they couldn't take care of them anymore.
They are 2 years old and spayed / neutered and love to be brushed.
They are very sweet but hiss and cry loudly when they are scared.
They have always been inside cats and together their whole lives.
We would love to find a home that would keep them together.
When we put them in the cat condo they were so scared they shared
a soft fuzzy cat bed together. They love each other.
They both tested NEG for FeLV & FIV on 12-18-14. Their one year Rabies
shot expired on 4-30-17. They are both scared here and hiding.
But soon we hope they feel comfortable and come out to greet everyone
These two are very sweet when you are lovin on them. Bubba even starts
to drool. Please help find them a home together.
