Our Featured Pet...

We house all the animals for Humane Society of Amherst County (HSAC) until they are ready to transfer the more adoptable pets such as puppies and kittens and sometimes our "special needs" dogs. Yes we are in the same building and anything in this building can be adopted! It is just that everything has to be adopted through HSAC. So please come visit us!! We have alot of wonderful animals waiting for a new home!


Who We Are

We are Amherst County Animal Care Center that is a shared facility with Humane Society of Amherst County. We are the ones that take surrender pets, loose strays that need a place to go, or any domestic animal. We have 2 Wardens on our side that try to help with any situation possible. They are great to work with and will assist you with anything! We also do have dog licenes that you can purchase here. If your pet is fixed its only $5, if they aren't the fee is $7. Kennel Inspections are done by the Wardens with the cost of $25. If you have ten or less dogs that is the cheapest way to go. Any animal concerns you have or need anything picked up please call 434-946-9300 for dispatch. They will fax the Warden and then they will contact you. Thank you for wanting to know a little bit more about what we do at Amherst County Animal Care and Control!
