How Can I Adopt or Foster?
Looking for a new friend? One of our main goals is the placement of animals into suitable homes.
Animals that are under the control of the Humane Society of Pulaski County, VA:
These animals are located in private foster homes or in the HSOPCVA Cat Condo. Our cats are spayed or neutered and may have basic vaccinations. All HSOPCVA dogs are in foster care, are spayed or neutered and may have basic vaccinations. HSOPCVA animals are safe from euthanasia, but adopting one still saves a life because you’ll open up a spot for us to transfer another animal from animal control.
Animals that are under the control of the Pulaski County Animal Control:
These animals are at risk of euthanasia, so you must act quickly if you’re interested in adopting! Dogs and cats are vaccinated, and proof of spay or neuter is required if a pet is not altered prior to adoption (we can help you schedule an appointment for surgery). Animal Control animals are transferred to HSOPCVA as space allows, so if the animal’s status has changed, we’ll let you know when you apply for adoption.

If you have any questions about the adoption process, please visit our FAQ. You can fill out the adoption application online or print it and bring it to the shelter. Although we try to be as accurate as possible, we cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of our dogs or puppies. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog’s exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue–we work with several of these and would be happy to provide you with their information! We want our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are – no matter what breed and size they turn out to be!
Can’t adopt right now? You can still help by sponsoring the animals on this page or by fostering an animal from the shelter!
