forever homes for all animals by the new year

LYNDHURST – The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is hosting Home for the Howlidays this Saturday, Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. until all animals find homes, the animal shelter said.

The animal shelter expects an exciting and busy day and encourages people to plan to arrive early.

Here are some steps you can take to speed up the adoption process:

Submit your adoption request for pre-approval online. Applications can be found at and at the URL links below. (Note: the approval of the application does not take into account an animal).

For people submitting same-day claims, bring veterinary documentation that shows your current animals are spayed and up to date on their rabies vaccines.

For day-submitting people who are tenants, bring documentation that pets are allowed where you live or make sure your landlord can be contacted.

Bring all of the family with you to make sure your future pet will be a perfect fit for everyone in the house.

If you are looking to adopt a dog and currently have dogs, bring your current dog (s) with you for a meeting at the animal shelter.

This is a special adoption event sponsored by Petco Love, in the hopes that all of their pets will find forever homes by the New Year. The animal service center is unable to accept credit cards on weekends and is unable to give change. If you are considering adopting, bring cash or a check for adoption fees.
