We have made some great changes at the shelter lately! A few of which is our outreach using social media. We are working hard to get as many followers and supporters as possible. The biggest and most helpful tool in getting positive adoptions has been our Facebook pages. We are hoping to branch out to other networks such as Twitter, Instagram and more pet finder updates along with adding a few more rescue sites such as Adoptapet. So please go like, follow and share our stories in any way you can!
The IOW Sheriff's Office Animal Services Division (Animal Control) is committed to public safety and animal protection through sheltering, adoption programs, education and animal law enforcement.
We have dogs and cats of all ages, sizes, breeds and mixes available for adoption. As of March 1, 2013 we now have adoption fees. $90 for dogs, $75 for cats and $25 for all other companion animals. The adoption fee covers spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming and rabies, along with heart worm testing for dogs. Please keep in mind a vet office would easily charge $200 plus for all of those services. If you have any questions, please call us 757-365-6318. You will get animal control dispatch, just ask for a shelter attendant.
Did you know you can foster an animal(as long as your application is approved) for up to 2 weeks to see if he/she is the right fit for your family?
