Amelia County Animal Control

Animal Control has become a multifaceted organization balancing citizen safety with animal protection. Maintaining a high degree of excellence has allowed us to become one of the top shelters of rural Virginia.

The shelter includes six (6) large dog runs, allowing us to house twelve (12) large dogs at one time  and eighteen (18) cat cages, allowing us to house approximately twenty (20) cats. We also have an isolation room with one large rolling cage and one small rolling cage.

We promote our animals being housed at the shelter on the internet at @ to reunite them with their owners and, if not, to hopefully find a new appropriate home. 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. Adopters find a friendly knowledgeable staff always willing to help.

Citizens wishing to rid themselves of unwanted animals must call the shelter for a pick up or bring them in during regular business hours. Please speak with an Animal Control officer before bringing an animal to the shelter.
