Dogs Needing Homes in Wythe and Bland Counties, VA
January 15th 2021: Due to Covid, the Wythe County Dog Shelter has been closed to the public since late October. Unfortunately, this has limited our local adoptions. However, the staff along with our great group of volunteers have made certain that ALL dogs entering the shelter during this time were either reunited with their owners, or sent to Rescue. We of course, will continue to allow visits for owner reclaims. When possible, a visit may also be scheduled for adoption interest of a particular dog, serious inquiries only. These visits will be by appointment only, and wearing a mask will be required. Below are pics and info of the dogs that we currently have. Thank you for your support during this time. See Found Dogs on the WCDS Facebook page
WARNING: Not all dogs at the shelter are listed on the facebook page. If you have lost your dog go to the shelter to check. Dogs collected by the Bland County dog warden are taken to Wythe County Dog Shelter. If you have lost your dog, go to the shelter because the shelter staff 'may not recognise your description of your dog'. You only have 5 days to claim your dog. Have your dog microchipped and make sure your contact details are up to date so that ownership cannot be disputed. It may save your dogs life! We welcome enquiries from potential adopters and animal rescues. If you are not a resident of Wythe County or one of the adjacent counties, contact your local rescue to see if they will rescue the dog for you. Please phone about a specific dog rather than e-mail which may not be read in time. For information regarding the dog featured, please contact Wythe County Animal Control NOW on (276) 228-6003. We keep stray dogs 5 days so that the owner can claim them but you can express an interest before the 'available' date. The date the dog is listed as 'available' is NOT the day it will be put down but we may only keep the dog for 5 days after the 'available' date. Wythe County Dog Shelter

Too Many Wonderful Dogs at the Humane Society for Campbell County
The Humane Society for Campbell County in Rustburg, VA is always overflowing with wonderful dogs. It currently has a number of owner surrenders that need loving homes, as well as dogs in the pound that need help. Please see click here for a full listing. The Adoption Fee varies from animal to animal and will depend on the amount of care given to the dog. Care includes, but is not limited to: spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing, deworming, treatment with Frontline, special vet care, microchipping, temperament-tested dogs who have been in foster care, house training, grooming, and socializing. Some dogs are in foster homes. While these dogs are not in danger of being PTS, moving one into rescue frees up that foster home to take another dog in need!
Contact: Barbe email@example.com
Vetting: All dogs are dewormed. Other vetting offered at cost that shelter pays; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote. More Dogs Needing homes at Campbell County Humane Society Humane Society for Campbell County, Inc.
