Spotsylvania Animal Shelter

Spotsylvania Animal Shelter During renovations, the shelter is working on a modified schedule. Please call 540-507-7459 to arrange an appointment Tuesday -Saturday. The shelter houses all animals, appropriate, that are collected by Animal Control deputies or county citizens.

Animals are held in accordance with state requirements, and are redeemed by the owner, adopted, or euthanized. Our shelter has been on a NO KILL Mission since September of 2013. The shelter also houses a low cost spay/neuter clinic, which is operated by Lionhearts Inc.,
a local humane organization. All dogs and cats adopted from the shelter are sterilized
within 30 days from the date of adoption, with the exception of puppies and kittens
that are too young.

Oscar, 2-3 years, is still looking for his forever home. Oscar does very well with other cats, and would enjoy having a cat sibling once again. Oscar truly hopes that someone will come give him the chance to show how sweet he is, and see past the fact that he is initially timid. Call the shelter today at 540-507-7459 to schedule a meet

Makamae and Nibbler, approx 4 years, are brothers that were brought here all the way from Hawaii, but sadly, their human could no longer care for them and they found themselves in the shelter. Makamae is blind, both eyes were enucleated when he was younger, so Nibbler is his "seeing eye cat." Nibbler is much more outgoing, as the world is less scary for him. Makamae can be all hiss but no bite until he is comfortable with you. PLEASE SHARE and if able to open your home to a bonded pair, please consider scheduling an appointment to meet/adopt Makamae and Nibbler!

Four months and he finds himself looking for a new family. We see this all too often in the shelter/rescue world. Puppies are adorable but they are WORK and time consuming. "Jag" loves other dogs, would be happiest in a home with another larger, playful friend. Jag is eager to learn, and is already excelling in his foster home with the training games they are playing. If ready to put in the work, and make a life long commitment, then Jag would love to hear from you! Please email [email protected] to learn more or to arrange a meet.

Vera was lucky enough to find a foster home today! As you can see, she settled right in and made herself at home. Vera does well with other dogs, appears to be housebroken, is 8+ years of age and is on precourse of hw treatment. Vera is still on the search for her forever family, and she knows an older hw positive hound is not what everyone is looking for most often, but she also knows her true forever family is out there.

Oscar, approximately two years, figures if you guys see him almost every day eventually one of you is going to have to come in and meet him and then you will just fall in love. Oscar says he doesn’t mean to seem scary or mean if he hissed when he first meets you, he is simply insecure in this environment. Oscar is a complete and total love bug, and very much so a lap cat that does wonderfully with other cats. If ready to provide a loving forever home, please consider calling the shelter at 540-507-7459 to schedule an appointment to meet Oscar.

This beautiful face belongs to Bear. Bear, two years, came to us due to some hardships that fell upon her family. Bear did live with cats in her previous home as well as children. Bear is a little bit timid at first, so we think that children eight and up might be safest. To learn more or to schedule a meet, please consider calling the shelter at 540-507-7459.

Oscar, 3 years, says that the shelter is the scariest place he’s ever seen, and he knows they’re trying to be nice to him, but he still just terrified in hopes that you will consider taking a chance on him and coming to meet/adopt him. Oscar does amazingly with other cats, has no adjustment period even. Please share and help us to find a way to help him find his way out of the shelter and into a loving forever home.

This adorable Dachshund mix, approximately 8+ years, arrived as a stray, with an adorable beagle sister, and says she would not mind staying with her sister or being in a home with another dog again. She is desperately in need of a dental, so any adoptive household needs to be ready for that ASAP. To learn more or to schedule a meet, please email [email protected]

Ivory is still at the shelter waiting to meet her forever family. Ivory has only lived with females, so can be uncomfortable around men. It takes a bit of time for her to learn to trust you, but once she does, she has all the love in the world to give. To learn more or to arrange a meet, please call the shelter at 5405077459

Addie, 8 years, was also surrendered yesterday when her family moved and stated she could not go with them. Addie is obviously quite confused being at a shelter, and she says that lots of cuddle time makes her feel a bit better. Addie has lived with children, but not with other dogs, so if you have any other dogs in the household, make sure they come along for a meet and greet. Addie is seriously overweight, and does need a family committed to helping her get back to a healthy weight. Please consider sharing this video, and if you think she might be your perfect fit, please call 540-507-7459 to schedule an appointment to meet her.

Flex, one year, has been bounced around so much in his young life time for NO fault of his own. In one home Flex was put out with the horses, and he scared them, and in another, the family found out they were pregnant and decided they could not handle a dog. Flex truly hopes that his next home is ready to make a lifetime commitment. Flex is full of energy, will do wonderfully with an extremely active family and even another dog to help wear him out. Flex hope you will consider calling the shelter at 5405077459 to schedule a meet.

LOST DOG We are fostering to adopt this sweet pup and she just ran out of our house. We are over in the Grays Mill Rd area. She was a feral so she’s VERY shy and will probably run away. She does have tags on her with the phone number to The Chance Foundation. But please also call me if you see her. 540-272-4573 or 757-660-4158. Her name is Nelly. ASK FOR ALI OR CARLA
Stella blue....ie shadow when she was part of the spotsy group. She’s spoiled beyond belief and I love her dearly and have her tattooed on my arm.
This girl was let go apparently in Powhatan, VA 10 years ago while her owner was stationed overseas. Please share to help find the current owner - the prior owner just is hoping to know that she landed safely and is having a wonderful life. It is hard to not know where your baby is. Please share! Thank you! https://www.facebook.com/groups/virginiaangelpaws/permalink/1214361712332259/
