It is always better to adopt rather than buy a new companion. With 50% of shelter animals being euthanized each year due to a lack of adoptions, there is always a need for loving homes. If you are interested in adopting a pet, you can visit Adopt-A-Pet.Com @ Also, feel free to call the Shelter at (804) 561-3878 or see their Facebook page for a more accurate listing of available cats and dogs.

Also, be sure to contact the local vets to see if they know of someone trying to adopt out a pet, or if they have a homeless animal in need of a home.
