What We Do for Our Pets

All dogs and cats will have undergone the following procedures before adoption:

  • Spay / neuter surgery
  • Age-appropriate preventative vaccinations
  • FELV / FIV testing for cats
  • Heartworm testing for dogs
  • Microchips for dogs
  • Rabies vaccine for dogs and cats over 4 months of age

Chesterfield County Adoption Policy

Animals are available for adoption on a first-come, first-served basis. The first person in the parking lot is considered the first person in line for an animal. As long as they do not leave the parking lot, their spot in line is reserved.
