Our Mission

The Clarke County Animal Shelter is a government run, "open door admission" shelter.
"Open door admission" means we receive animals regardless of their behavior, health or level of adaptability, and that we do not turn away any UN-wanted or stray animals from the towns and unincorporated communities of Berryville, Boyce, Millwood, White Post, Waterloo, Calmes Neck, Frog Town, and parts of Bluemont. We are not considered a no-kill shelter. The shelter takes in roughly 900 animals a year, with the totals growing each year. We take GREAT pride in both: Keeping the shelter clean and inviting and giving the animals in our facility the greatest love, care and attention as possible. The shelter has 11 kennels for adoptable dogs. 11 kennels for stray dogs. 2 kennels for nursing dogs. 2 kennels for the quarantine dogs. We have a main cat room that can hold 19 cats for adoption. A cat condo that can house 5-6 cats. Stray cat room that can hold 14 stray cats. Cat isolation room that can house 8 cats. This is all managed by two full time employees and a few volunteers. Along with a small facility comes a small budget. Our local Humane foundation helps us with the unexpected and emergency vet bills. And for spaying and neutering of the SHELTER animals. If you would like to help? Be a regular donor! Your donations will help with the present and future care of the animals at our shelter.The Clarke county humane foundation: Po Box 713 Berryville, VA 22611. Thank You.
