About Our Shelter
Our animal shelter was established in the 1970s. We have increased our support and assistance to pets and the people who love them for almost 50 years.
We are dedicated to saving homeless pets in our community and to providing assistance to pet owners in need. We provide services for Alleghany County, the city of Covington, and the towns of Clifton Forge and Iron Gate, Virginia. Our shelter enables the area’s animal population to be reunited with their owners and gives animals a second chance for adoption.
We promote responsible pet care and work toward ending pet overpopulation through spay/neuter assistance and education. Approximately 1,000 companion animals are cared for at our shelter or receive low-cost spay/neuter assistance through programs we administer annually. A low-cost spay/neuter subsidy is available thanks to generous grant funds provided by WestRock to our community. It is through the combined efforts of devoted board members, loyal staff, faithful volunteers, committed rescue partners, supportive businesses, and concerned citizens, that we have been successful.
