Greensville County Animal Shelter is a small rural facility in the south of Virginia. While Greensville County Animal Shelter is not yet a no-kill facility, this is a goal we strive to achieve each and every day. We are also fortunate enough to work with some amazing rescue groups and dedicated individuals who help us move animals to safety each and every week.

Lost your dog or cat?
Stray dogs and cats are kept for 5 days before being put up for adoption. Contact the shelter to check whether your pet is there. Some of the stray dogs and cats are featured on our Facebook Page but not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your pet.

Adopting a dog?
Animals in custody of Greensville County are eligible for adoption unless the Animal Control Officer (ACO) feels that the animal would impose a danger to the new owner or other residents. All animals adopted from the Greensville County Animal Shelter are required to be spayed or neutered unless they meet a special breed provision. The current adoption fee is $25.00 per animal to adopt any dog or cat at the Greensville County Animal Shelter. Animals may be adopted directly from Greensvile County Animal Shelter. Doris Ozmar (Animal Control Officer) can be contacted at 434-632-1681 and will be glad to assist you with the process.

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.

Find the right dog for you
When looking for that new family member please remember to really think about the things you and your family want and need in a pet that fits the family lifestyle. Get to know your breeds! Some breeds require more space, exercise and circumstances than others. Even if you are going to adopt a mixed breed, look into what it's primary breed needs in a home, environment and exercise. Your new family member needs to be wanted by everyone in the family and included in your daily lives to be truly happy. Click here for more information on how to find the right dog.

Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need canned cat food, puppy potty pads, canned dog food, kitten chow (canned or hard), puppy chow (canned or hard), basic cleaning supplies, towels, blankets, and dog beds or you may mail a donation to Greensville County Animal Shelter, 255 Falling Run Road, Emporia, Virginia 23847. On behalf of the animals thank you.

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.

Keep your dog in the family
