Notes: Available for Adoption. Adoption Fee $110. Pete is currently available for adoption. He has the definition of puppy dog eyes that are begging for treats and ear scratches. He is a big, gentle boy who loves treats and rubbing his belly in the grass. He has not been tested with cats, but shows no aggression towards other dogs that we have seen, though we require he is the only pet in the home. He walks great on a leash and loves to give hugs too! If you think your home can handle a life-size teddy bear, please come by and meet Pete for yourself, he will not disappoint! One of Pete's FAVORITE things to do is rub his belly on the grass, and we have to admit, he looks pretty cute doing it. If you would like to come out and meet any of our pets please contact the Giles County Animal Shelter at 540-921-2053.

If you are interested in adopting Pete please call 540-921-2053 to arrange to meet him. See our adoption information here.

Adoption fee is $110 - cash only (includes neutering)

Dogs are claimed, adopted and rescued everyday so please contact us to check that this dog is available.

Virginia law says that we have to keep a dog for 5 days so that the owner can claim it before we can put the dog up for adoption. If you are interested in a particular dog before its available date please contact us. We would like a dog to go to a new home or rescue as soon as possible after its "available" date.

Adoption fee for a dog or cat is $20 (non-refundable) + neutering fee. State law requires that anyone adopting a shelter animal must have it spayed/neutered. You have to pay for a neuter certificate, the cheapest one we have for a dog is $100, which pays for neutering, the first vaccinations, rabies vaccine and a micro-chip.

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.
