Dogs at the shelter are listed on Petfinder: http://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelterid=VA213 and on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MCFACC, 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.
Montana has been waiting for her forever home since December of 2013. She has done quite well in her foster home with multiple other dogs, however she is very picky about what new dogs that she wants to befriend and tends to dislike female dogs. Though she may look small in the picture, Montana is a large breed dog and now weighs about 60 pounds (she has also gained some weight since this picture was taken!). She loves chewing rawhides and riding in the car. Montana is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and housebroken. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in meeting Montana!
According to Sasha’s foster mom: “Sasha has been nothing but a happy, sweet pup since she came home. She has never met a stranger and is friendly toward all people, even kids! We weren’t sure how she was with other dogs while at the shelter, but she has done fantastic with my other dog in the house. She is hit or miss with dogs we meet on walks, but usually warms up to them if given enough time. Sasha is a couch potato indoors (she even lies down at the vet)! Her energy increases when outside, especially if cats or squirrels are around, but her leash manners are progressing. Sasha needs a home with enough time to give her the exercise she needs. She has a lot of love to give and is as sweet as they come. Completely crate trained and house broken, and has also learned “sit, down and stay”.” Sasha is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, and housebroken.
