Animal Shelter

The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center provides local animal control services regionally for Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County. Stray, abandoned, lost, and surrendered dogs, cats, and other companion animals will be cared for at the new shelter. Residents of the three localities will need to call their local Animal Control Services to have these animals taken into care as needed:

If you are reclaiming a pet that was picked up by animal control, fines must be paid at the Waynesboro Police Department before retrieving your pet from the shelter.
