💔 Heartbreaking News: Sky Needs Your Help 💔

Remember Sky? The sweet, brown and white pup who touched hearts worldwide when she went unnoticed at the shelter for months? In February, she finally found her forever home, but life took an unexpected turn. Sky has been back in the shelter for 74 days, and her story is just as heart-wrenching as before.

Sky is a lovely female dog, 61 pounds of pure affection. She's spayed, rabies vaccinated, and microchipped, ready to become the loyal companion you've been searching for. Despite her captivating story, Sky hasn't received a single inquiry or visitor. She's great with people of all ages, but she must be the only dog in her new home.

Let's not let history repeat itself for Sky. She deserves a loving family who can provide the care and companionship she craves. If you're looking for a devoted furry friend to welcome into your home, please consider reaching out to the shelter at [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]). Your kindness could make all the difference in the world for this special dog.

Let's share Sky's story and find her the forever home she so desp

Meet Prince, our charming senior dog in search of a loving forever home. 🐾

Despite spending 58 days at the shelter (that's ‼️406 days‼️dog years!), this 9.5-year-old Chocolate Lab-German Shepherd mix still has plenty of love to give. His previous family sadly had to part ways due to unforeseen circumstances, and we're determined to find Prince the perfect retirement haven.

Weighing 73 pounds, Prince is a well-mannered, neutered gentleman who's ready for his next chapter. He's housebroken, leash trained, and knows his commands and tricks. While he gets along with other dogs, a meet-and-greet is essential to ensure compatibility. As a wise old soul, Prince prefers a home without young children, given his past experiences.

Prince's zest for life is evident during his delightful walks with volunteers. We're moved by his story and excited to find him a warm, caring home. 🏡❤️

Can you be the one to provide Prince with the golden years he deserves? Your kindness will make all the difference as he embarks on this new journey. Please reach out via email for adoption inquiries to give Prince his happily-ever-after. 💌 Posting in comments may delay our response, but your patience is greatly appreciated.

Let's work together to make Prince's dreams a reality. His heartwarming story reminds us of the love shelter pets bring into our lives. Thank you for considering adoption and supporting our shelter community. 🙏

Introducing Prince: Your Faithful Companion Awaits!

For adoption inquiries or further details, please contact us via email: [email protected]

Prince finds himself bewildered and anxious in the shelter environment. At 8.5 years old, he spent the last five years with a single family, and it's crucial to note that he's uncomfortable with being lifted and may react defensively. Patience is key for anyone willing to connect with Prince. Additionally, he might display some hesitance when having his leash removed. While he hasn't bitten anyone, the shelter setting has left him severely stressed. Our aim is to secure a loving home for him as soon as possible.

Meet Prince, an 18-pound Maltese with a heart as large as his cute button nose. His journey led him to the Stafford County Animal Shelter, where he eagerly awaits a forever home.

Surrendered with a heavy heart by his previous owner who couldn't provide care anymore, Prince initially appears reserved in the shelter. However, his genuine friendly and affectionate nature shines once he's comfortable with you.

This seasoned 8.5-year-old senior exudes vitality and a zest for life. He's in great health, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped – all set to become a cherished family member.

Prince's charm extends to people of all ages, including children. He's also amicable with fellow canines, making him a versatile playmate. If you have a furry friend at home, arranging a meet and greet is recommended.

House-trained, crate trained, and familiar with leash etiquette, Prince boasts excellent behavior. He's responsive to basic commands, showcasing his eagerness to learn and please. Bear in mind, he does experience some separation anxiety, making him an ideal companion for those seeking constant company.

One perk of adopting Prince is that he's already neutered, eliminating geographical restrictions. No matter where you are, he's ready for his forever home.

If Prince touches your heart, visit the Stafford County Animal Shelter. Remember to bring a picture ID with your current address. If your address isn't on the ID, a recent bill with your name and address, along with your ID, will suffice.

Adoptions operate on a first-come, first-served basis, unless otherwise specified. Your decision to adopt Prince transforms his life and brings immense joy to yours.

Thank you for considering adoption and your commitment to shelter pets. Your compassion truly matters. Welcome to the Stafford County Animal Shelter, where we're thrilled to assist you in finding your perfect furry companion. Let's make Prince a part of your heart and home today!

🐾 Meet Wonka: Today’s featured feline! 🐱

🖤🤍 Majestic Male Cat | Neutered | Up-to-date on Rabies vaccine | Good with other cats | 3 years old | 10 pounds

Wonka is a striking black and white Domestic Longhair with a graceful walk that exudes elegance. Despite his regal appearance, he's incredibly affectionate and cuddly. He had a challenging past but is ready to start anew with a loving family.

Wonka was surrendered to the shelter because he struggled with the arrival of a new baby in his previous home, leading to some litter box issues. Since being in the shelter, he's been using the litter pan consistently. His previous owners described him as loving and cuddly, but he prefers a home without babies or toddlers.

Wonka has lived harmoniously with other cats and even a medium-sized dog. He's known to be the first to greet visitors and has a charming habit of trying to sip coffee ☕️ in the mornings. He's neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and even knows how to sit on command!

If you're experienced with cats who have behavioral challenges and understand Wonka's needs, he could be the perfect companion for you. He longs for a lap to curl up on and a family to call his own. Are you the one who can provide Wonka with the loving and understanding home he deserves?

To ensure a smooth adoption process, please bring your picture ID with your current address. Cats must be transported in carriers, so please have one ready or purchase a cardboard carrier for $5. Walk-in visits are welcome during operating hours, but adoptions conclude 30 minutes before closing time. Please note the following adoption hours:

🗓️ Monday to Friday: 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
🗓️ Saturdays: 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
🗓️ Sundays and Holidays: Closed

Find us at 26 Frosty Lane, Stafford, VA 22554. For more information, contact us at 540.658.7387 or [email protected].

Thank you for considering adoption and making a difference in a shelter pet's life. We can't wait to welcome you and Wonka to the Stafford County Animal Shelter! 🐾

🐾🐕‍🦺Meet Sam: Your Energetic Adventure Buddy Awaits!💖🐕‍🦺

Introducing Sam, an 83-pound Black Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd mix who embodies the spirit of pure joy and boundless energy! This boy has an insatiable passion for life and an unmatched enthusiasm for running. If you're ready to embark on exciting adventures, Sam is the perfect companion for you!

Sam's vibrant energy has made him a familiar face at our shelter, having been found running loose on 15 separate occasions over the past two years. Sadly, his previous owner grew weary of Sam's escapades and made the difficult decision to surrender him to our care. But Sam's story is far from over – he's ready to find a forever home that embraces his zest for life.

At 5 years old, Sam is at the prime of his exuberance. He's recently been neutered and updated on his Rabies vaccination, and while he's missing some vaccines, his health is our top priority. Sam's social nature shines through as he has been known to run loose with another dog – he's a canine socialite, especially fond of his fellow female companions. His interactions with humans are equally heartwarming, though his enthusiastic spirit might be a bit overwhelming for smaller children.

Sam's housebroken and even comes with a glowing recommendation from his previous owner – he's a champ with farm animals, including chickens 🐔 and goats 🐐. While his feline interactions remain a mystery, there's a good chance he could learn to coexist with a proper introduction.

If you're the type of person or family who cherishes the great outdoors, Sam is the ideal partner for your adventures. Running, hiking, and exploring are his passions, and he thrives when he's able to stretch his legs and experience the world alongside a loving companion. A spacious fenced backyard would be Sam's dream come true, but if you're committed to an active lifestyle, Sam is ready to accompany you on walks or jogs.

It's important to note that Sam isn't just any dog – he's looking for an experienced owner who can provide him with the guidance, structure, and activities he needs to thrive. He's not suited for apartment living, and he'll thrive best with someone who understands his high energy levels.

We're confident that Sam's perfect family is out there, just waiting to meet this exuberant young canine. Could you be the one to welcome Sam into your heart and home?

To meet Sam and discover if you're the perfect match, visit the Stafford County Animal Shelter at: Stafford County Animal Shelter 26 Frosty Lane Stafford, VA 22554

Update: Latte Has Been Adopted ❤️

🐾Meet Latte: Your Perfect Blend of Affection and Fidelity! ☕️

Looking for a furry friend with an abundance of personality? Look no further than Latte, the charming 2-year-old Doberman who's eager to bring joy and companionship into your life! With that infectious grin and spirited energy, Latte is ready to find his forever family.

Latte weighs 48lb and unfortunately ended up at our shelter due to unforeseen circumstances. But this boy is resilient and ready to embrace a new chapter filled with love and care. While he's not a fan of cats, Latte is excited to meet other canine buddies. He had a brief adventure with an adopter, but his need for extra care and training brought him back to our shelter. Latte is crate trained, housebroken, and motivated by treats – a quick learner who's always up for fun!

Remember, adopting a dog, especially a breed like Doberman, requires commitment. They need time, training, socialization, and regular vet care. Latte is super friendly and gets along well with dogs and kids, making him a wonderful fit for any loving home. He's neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped for safety.

Your compassion and consideration mean the world to us. As you think about bringing a shelter pet into your life, keep in mind that we don't have an in-house vet. Make sure to arrange essential vet care for your new companion.

Update: Clyde Has Been Adopted ❤️

Meet Clyde: A Heartful Plea for Adoption

🐾Clyde's Journey: 118 Days and Counting. We are calling all Shepherd lovers!❤️

Clyde, a soulful 3-year-old German Shepherd mix weighing 80 pounds, has been awaiting his forever home for a staggering 118 days. Despite his unwavering spirit and sweet disposition, he has struggled to capture the attention he so deeply craves. Today, we shine the spotlight on Clyde, our "Dog of the Week," and implore you to consider the joy and companionship he's ready to offer.

🌟Clyde's Story: A Ray of Light Amidst Hardship

In the midst of April's challenges, we confronted the heartache of urgent medical cases in our care, including Candy, Ronnie, and Sunny. These innocent beings were ravaged by severe mange, a condition that touched our hearts deeply. Although we lost Candy, the memory of her bravery lives on. Sunny and Ronnie found their loving homes, thriving with care and attention. Clyde, from the same case, still hopes for his chance to shine.

🐕Clyde's Unique Charm

Clyde's 3-year journey has been one of resilience and hope. This handsome boy greets the world with a wagging tail and warm kisses, despite the scars of his past. He's an 80-pound bundle of affection, yearning to be part of a family. Clyde is on the path to recovery, undergoing medicated baths and receiving the care he deserves. He's been neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated against Rabies, ready to start anew.

🏡The Gift of Adoption

Adopting Clyde means becoming part of his journey towards healing and happiness. While we understand that adopting a pet requires dedication, Clyde's heart is overflowing with love and gratitude. Our shelter's capacity is strained, and your choice to adopt Clyde not only transforms his life but also opens space for us to save more lives.

Have you heard the latest tail-wagging news? A stocky 2-year-old tan Bully breed boy was picked up running loose on Independence Drive, 22554. 🏃‍♂️ He's a real heart-stealer, but unfortunately he is not wearing s collar and he has not been microchipped. An intact male, 40 pounds.

Don't let this tan Bully breed's heart of gold and the Partridge's tree-top adventures be in vain!

🐾 Are You Missing Us? 🐾

🐶 Our animal shelter is currently at capacity, with a growing number of owner surrenders and stray dogs. Today, we're seeking owners for two Bulldogs (male and female) found near Vine Place, 22554, and a yellow female Labrador wearing a camo collar discovered roaming on Richard's Ferry Road. Additionally, a sweet female Great Pyrenees was spotted loose on Rockhill Church Road, 22556. She wasn't wearing a collar.

📣 If you're missing your furry friend, please reach out to the animal shelter as soon as possible. We're facing a space shortage and need your help. Remember, a picture ID and proof of ownership are necessary for pick-up.

🙏 Kindly share this post to extend a helping hand to these lovable companions in need. Your support can make a significant difference!

Kilo has been adopted again! We are hoping this will be his forever loving home ❤️

Urgent Plea to Find a Loving Home for Kilo - A Heartfelt Appeal ❤️

We're sharing a touching story that mirrors the anguish felt by countless innocent souls who are lost and alone. Meet Kilo, a 2-year-old brindle intact Boxer mix, who was surrendered to our shelter just 48 hours ago. His world crumbled when his owner moved away, leaving Kilo and two faithful canine companions behind. Abandoned, Kilo is now in our shelter, where the unfamiliar surroundings and unfamiliar faces have left him utterly frightened.

As we pen this, our eyes brim with tears, witnessing Kilo's silent suffering every day. The shelter, already full, can't provide refuge for this fragile being. Nowhere for Kilo to retreat and gather his frayed nerves, nowhere to escape the overwhelming fear that engulfs him. His once-trusting and loving eyes now reflect deep confusion and sorrow that's almost unbearable.

Kilo weighs just 47 pounds, but the weight he carries is immeasurable. He yearns for a tranquil haven, a sanctuary to find peace and security. We implore you, dear friends, to help us spread the word beyond these shelter walls. Kilo deserves a chance to heal, to rediscover the warmth of a kind touch and the companionship of a like-hearted soul.

We plead with you to share Kilo's tale extensively. Let his plea touch the hearts of those with room in their homes and love in their hearts. Let's find Kilo the lifeline he urgently craves – a rescue, an adopter, someone to reassure him that the world can still be safe and caring.

Please, let's unite in our efforts to raise awareness for Kilo. Reach out to us at Stafford County Animal Shelter or email us at [email protected]. Let Kilo's story resonate with compassionate individuals willing to open their arms and rewrite his life's narrative. He may be just one dog, but for Kilo, a fresh start means everything.

Let's join hands and make a change for Kilo today. 🐾

I adopted Gigi and OC back in September of last year. I was a bit worried how things would turn out but I'm so glad I picked them. Only pictures I can get are when they're sleeping. Thank you Stafford County Animal Shelter for helping me find my forever friends and all that you do for the animals in your facility!
This is so sweet!💜 This adorable young lady turned 6 in December 🎂 Instead of asking for toys for her birthday, Charlotte asked to visit the Stafford County Animal Shelter & brought her favorite book to read to the cats 🐈💜

Stafford County Animal Shelter has rabbits! A whole boy band worth! 😂 The Backstreet Bunnies are looking for their furever families! 💜🐇

We made it a family event today and stopped at Stafford County Animal Shelter to drop off some much needed food and litter since they are almost at full capacity! Adoption fees are still COVERED and there are plenty of furry friends that are looking for their forever home.

Courtesy post for our friends at the Stafford animal shelter. We love partnering with them. I just fell in love with this little guy. 🐾🐶♥️

Meet Chi. He’s a sweet chihuahua. He’s waiting for his forever home, but so far he has no applications. He takes a little time to warm up to you, but LOVES you once he knows you. Please make this little guy’s holiday dreams come true and contact the Stafford Shelter to adopt him. You are also welcome to complete our application and we will forward it onto the Stafford County Animal Shelter♥️♥️♥️
WOW America's Choice Mortgage Company is sponsors ALL the adoption fees at the Stafford County Animal Shelter. We hope these pets find their forever homes this holiday season!
Verti is only 7-8 mos. old and needs a patient adopter to help him nail down his potty training.

Please share this sweetie with the pouty face - Verti is waiting at Stafford County Animal Shelter (VA).
The newest Mission bully, mr. Flanagan is out the Stafford County Animal Shelter and on his way with Michael, into a home. Whatever the future holds for this special little man, he’ll have all of us behind him. Special thanks to Kristen Baker and her father for the evaluation and actual pull. For Nikki “Walters Mom” for letting us work this case and Beth who’s agreed to provide a longer term home

If you would like to help the Bull Terrier Rescue Mission with Flanagans medical bills (likely an echocardiogram and a cardio consult) or assist with the needs of any of our other cases, it’ll go a long way towards keeping our doors open for the next few intakes.

The Stafford County Animal Shelter is down to it's last few bags of dog food (😰) They strongly prefer fish-based as it has less allergens and can be safely fed to more of their shelter dogs. If you are a Costco member, we found this bag in stock and will be ordering several bags, but please feel free to order from their Amazon Wish List (https://a.co/fWL3LIK), or your favorite pet delivery OR, drop off a bag or two in person. Thank you!
