Franklin County Humane Society Inc. Rocky Mount, VA 24151
Please take a look at the pets on our website. The list seems to change daily and every day we have more animals brought to us. We are inundated with puppies. All of our puppies have been through quarantine. All of our adults have been vetted. These dogs are “safe”, however, while we have them in our care we cannot pull the pound dogs that are so desperate. There are some great adult dogs and puppies listed. There are more dogs at the pound out of time and they are full and we are full! We need to make room.

Save The Tails Rescue Group Leesburg, VA 20178
The Charleston/Kanawha Animal Shelter is dealing with unwanted animals in epidemic proportions. Last fiscal year, they took in over 10,000 animals and had to euthanize over 7,000. To put this in perspective, they take in 27 animals a day, 365 days a year! And, to really sicken you, they are forced to euthanize an average of 19 animals a day, 365 days a year! If that is not enough to make one stand up and pay attention, I am not sure what is! At Save the Tails we want to help. We are located in Northern Virginia and are willing to transport any animal from the Kanawha Shelter so that they can be fostered and adopted here in Northern Virginia.
