Who We Are

Welcome to the Alleghany Humane Society homepage. We serve as an animal shelter and local pound for Alleghany County, the city of Covington and the towns of Clifton Forge and Iron Gate, Virginia. Our facility enables the area's animal population to be reunited with their owners and gives animals a "second chance" for adoption. Our hours are noon until 4 p.m. on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and other times by appointment.

Adopting a friend

If you live in our adoption area, Alleghany County or surrounding counties, please visit the shelter. We are in a new location, new building, and have a new staff. The staff is very friendly and would like you to stop by during hours of operation (or by appointment). Please call the shelter for adoption fees. All adoption fees are non-refundable and all non-altered animals are required to be spayed/neutered within 30 days of adoption. If you are interested in one of our animals, but live outside the area and cannot come to the shelter, please call the shelter and we may be able to make arrangements to transport an animal to your area.

Volunteers are needed for all types of jobs. We would love to have you assist with filing, answering the phone, walking the dogs, helping with fundraisers, foster care, and community education. Please call the shelter if you can help - 862-2436.
