The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center (SVASC) is a non-profit regional animal shelter and municipal pound for stray, abandoned, lost and surrendered animals in Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County. The shelter welcomes volunteers and donations to maintain the animals in its care.
The shelter also partners with various other businesses and charitable animal organizations in the area to facilitate adoptions and spaying and neutering.
Adopt or Foster a Pet
Fortunately, the majority of the animals placed in the regional animal shelter end up in forever homes, thanks to the shelter’s average save rate of 95 percent. You can search for a pet to adopt through the SVASC’s adoptable pets directory.
If you’re not ready to adopt but want to help by providing displaced animals with temporary shelter, you can foster animals that need extra care until they are adopted.
