KING GEORGE ANIMAL CONTROL
Our Adoptable Pet List
WHO WE ARE
We are a county operated ANIMAL CONTROL / POUND facility, Proudly serving KING GEORGE, VA. We strive to provide professional, efficient service to everyone, while operating under realistic conditions, under the laws of Virginia. We continue to work with individuals and organizations that are truly interested in unwanted, adoptable, animals. We appreciate the tremendous support and cooperation received from the citizens of King George County.
ADOPTING AN ANIMAL
All adopted animals must be spayed or neutered. Unsterilized animals may only be adopted by residents within King George, Westmoreland, Essex, Caroline, Spotsy., or Stafford Counties, and the city of Fredericksburg. Animals previously sterilized may be adopted by anyone. Residents of King George have first option on available animals, over other individuals & organizations. Other eligible adopters may adopt available animals on a first come, first served basis. There is a $25 adoption fee. A $50.00 refundable CASH deposit is required on all adoptions of unsterilized animals. A $50.00 check will be refunded to you upon presentation of written proof of Sterilization, Rabies Vaccination, and Licensing (if required) on or before the mandatory sterilization date.
Animals may be transferred to other Agencies & Certified Companion Animal Rescue Groups per state law. (SEE http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+cod+3.1-796.96) SECTION C,1 FOR VA. AGENCIES AND SECTION C, 5 FOR NON-VA AGENCIES. Please read all of the requirements before calling us. INCLUDE YOUR 501(C)(3) CERTIFICATION & ONLY MAIL/FAX THE REQUIRED INFO THAT WE NEED TO APPROVE YOUR AGENCY. PULL FEES HAVE BEEN WAIVED FOR ANIMALS THAT ARE TRANSFERRED TO APPROVED 501(C)(3) AGENCIES.
We are experiencing more companion animal complaints (due to residential increases) along with more wildlife complaints (due to loss of habitat). This means we are busy, and have many animals going through our facility, so the amount of time that we can hold adoptable animals is limited. If you are interested in an animal please contact us immediately!
