Animal Services Unit
Impounded Pets

Virginia code requires that impounded dogs be held for a period before they are placed for adoption, transferred to a rescue organization, or, if deemed necessary, euthanized.

  • Dogs with identification must be held for 10 days.
  • Dogs without identification must be held for five days.  The Animal Services Unit will hold dogs and cats longer to give owners more time to find their pets.
  • If the animal has identification, the owner will be notified by certified mail.
  • Owners will be charged $30 for the first day of confinement and $12 for each succeeding day.
