Community Outreach and Pet Retention

Community Outreach

While Friends of Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center focuses its efforts on financial support for animals in the custody of the shelter, our broader goal extends much-needed support to the members of the Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County community and their companion animals.

Listed below are some of the services we have provided to animals in our community.

  • Financial assistance for family pets in need (income-qualified pet owners)
  • Assistance for feral cat caretakers
  • Low-cost Spay/neuter clinics
  • Low-cost Vaccine update clinics
  • Low-cost Microchipping clinics

Are you in need of pet food?

Contact SVASC to arrange to pick up some food.

Our Community Pet Food Pantry began as a response to a large number of community members forced to surrender their pets due to an inability to provide bare essentials, like food and cat litter, for their pets. The goal of the Friends of SVASC pet food pantry is to keep pets where they belong: at home and with their families.  By offering these resources at no cost, we have prevented unnecessary surrenders and significantly lowered the euthanasia rates for our community.

This program is entirely funded by the generous donations of local businesses, community partners, and individuals in our area.  Friends of SVASC is so grateful for your support!

We have partnered with Walmart to make it easy to donate food and other supplies to our Community Pet Food Pantry.  You can even print the list out and take it with you on your next shopping trip!

Pet Retention

We strongly believe that there is no better place for your pet than by your side. Our organization is happy to provide a multitude of resources and assistance to help keep you together and keep your pet out of the shelter. We want to help you make an informed decision to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your companion animal. While the issues many pet owners face seem impossible, they are often easily fixed. Please do not hesitate to contact us today if you are struggling with medical or behavioral issues!
