Lost your dog or cat?
Stray dogs and cats are kept for at least 5 days before being put up for adoption. Contact the shelter to check whether your pet is there. Some of the stray dogs and cats are featured on our Facebook Page but not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your pet.

Adopting a dog?
Animals in custody of Giles County are eligible for adoption unless the Animal Control Officer (ACO) feels that the animal would impose a danger to the new owner or other residents. Animals may be adopted directly from Giles County Animal Shelter. All animals adopted from the Giles County Animal Shelter are required to be spayed or neutered unless they meet a special breed provision. The current adoption fee is $20.00 per animal to adopt any dog or cat at the Giles County Animal Shelter (if the animal is neutered). State law requires that anyone adopting a shelter animal must have it spayed/neutered. If the animal is not spayed/neutered, you have to pay for a neuter certificate, the cheapest one we have for a dog is $98, which pays for neutering, the first vaccinations, rabies vaccine and a micro-chip. Please phone 540-921-2053 for information about adopting from the Giles County Animal Shelter.

We will not ‘hold’ or ‘reserve’ a dog by phone or e-mail or Facebook message. Make sure that you are able to take your dog home on the day you adopt it. We will not keep a dog for you after its ‘available’ day.

Find the right dog for you
When looking for that new family member please remember to really think about the things you and your family want and need in a pet that fits the family lifestyle. Get to know your breeds! Some breeds require more space, exercise and circumstances than others. Even if you are going to adopt a mixed breed, look into what it's primary breed needs in a home, environment and exercise. Your new family member needs to be wanted by everyone in the family and included in your daily lives to be truly happy. Click here for more information on how to find the right dog.
