The Greene County Animal Shelter is a small rural shelter in the northeast of Virginia. The Shelter operates under guidelines from the Commonwealth of Virginia to temporarily house stray or injured animals, provide for adoption of as many animals as possible and to humanely follow procedures for euthanasia for unwanted animals. The Shelter strives to encourage, promote, and preserve responsible pet ownership and to prevent any form of cruelty to animals. Our goal since January of 2015 is to have all the dogs to be spayed/neutered before being adopted to their forever family. You can help by donating to the spay/neuter fund of The Greene County Animal Shelter. We are located at 37 Jeri Allen Way, Ruckersville, VA 22968. There are two separate organizations in the building. The Greene County Animal Shelter is located on the left side of the building and only rehomes dogs. On the other side of the building is Madison-Greene Humane Society who rehome cats. Please come by and visit us and our shelter dogs.

The shelter dogs can always use volunteers to bath, to walk and to communicate with them. For more information see the Greene County Animal Control website.
