If you’re interested in adopting a pet, please take a few moments to read our Adoption Procedures page. Please remember that owning a pet is a lifetime commitment, and we are looking for responsible and permanent homes for all our animals. New animals arrive at our shelter every day, so please check back frequently until you find the right match.
* To ensure the safety of our environment, we are limiting our shelter capacity and will operate with a waiting list as needed. Please be prepared to wait outside or in your car if you visit our shelter during weekend hours.
**Please note that on days that puppies become available for adoption, we anticipate a line of visitors in front of our shelter before we open. We will start taking names for the waiting list at 9am, and we will open to the public at 11am.
We expect all shelter visitors to practice respect and compassion toward fellow adopters and shelter staff while waiting in line, throughout the puppy process, and at all times on VBSPCA property. We reserve the right to deny service to anyone who does not adhere to these guidelines.
