The Clarke County Animal Shelter is a government run, "open admission" shelter.
"Open 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. This is all managed by two full time employees and volunteers. Along with a small facility comes a small budget. Our local Humane foundation funds the spaying and neutering of all shelter pets and occasionally helps us with the unexpected and emergency vet bills. If you would like to help you can be a regular donor or a volunteer! 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.
