The Louisa County Animal Shelter operates under guidelines of the Commonwealth of Virginia providing humane sheltering, care, adoption, and redemption of stray and surrendered animals. We strive to eliminate pet overpopulation by encouraging spay/neuter of animals, increase the public awareness by educating our citizens on responsible pet ownership, and to prevent any form of animal cruelty. We are a county pound and we must maintain a few open runs for new intakes at all times. When we do fill up we work very hard not to euthanize for space by calling out to adopters and rescues for help.
We embrace inclusive, barrier free adoption policies. Our process is very simple but we do require in-person adoptions to make sure the pet is a good fit with your family. We do not require an appointment and welcome anyone to stop by when we are open!
