Adopt a Shelter Dog

Go for a run with Doug!

Go for a run with Doug! Doug was adopted from us in early 2016.

Dogs at the shelter are listed on Petfinder: and on our Facebook page (, in the photo album section). With so many great dogs available for adoption, selecting the right one can seem difficult. The Shelter Manager or an FACC volunteer can help you pick out a dog that is just right for you.

Dogs can be adopted from the shelter from 12-5 Monday – Friday and 12-4 on Saturdays. The shelter is located at 434 Cinnabar Road in Christiansburg. Please see the county’s web site for directions. If you would like more information on shelter adoption policies, please contact the shelter at 540-382-5795.

Adoption fees for dogs at the shelter are are $75.00 for females and $70.00 for males, which includes the spay/neuter fee. Virginia state law requires that any unneutered dogs must be sterilized within 30 days of adoption.

Currently in Foster Care

The Friends of Animal Care and Control has a limited foster care program. Dogs in foster care are spayed / neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and dewormed  before becoming available for adoption. Because they have been in a private home, we often will know more about their personalities and individual needs. The adoption fee for dogs in foster care is $125; an adoption application  and home visit are required before any dog will be adopted out.
