Animal Services - Evaluating a Dog or Cat's Adoptability


The Chesterfield County Animal Shelter works diligently to place all healthy and treatable domestic animals in appropriate adoptive homes.

To determine an animal's success in adoption the shelter's staff utilizes the

  • Asilomar Accords  - which are guiding principles for sheltered dogs and cats.
  • Pet Evaluation Matrix - which provides a scoring for the physical and behavioral health of the sheltered dog or cat.
