Who we are
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. For more information see the Greene County Animal Control website.

Zero Euthanasia in 2022
ZERO euthanasia for 2022 all thanks to our absolute amazing shelter family. We had a total of 263 dogs touch our hearts in 2022. We cannot say thank you enough for each and everyone who share and care our Facebook posts to help make all this possible.

    Our numbers for 2022:
  • ADOPTED: 143
  • RECLAIMED: 90
  • Transferred to rescue in VA: 15
  • Transferred to rescue out of state: 7
  • Died while in custody (sweet girl Ginger): 1
None of this would be possible if it was not for amazing supporters. Thank you all so much. Please continue to share and love each and everyone of our posts as it helps so very much! In 2023 we are also looking for monetary donations to help with our spay/neuter fund if your in the position to help. Any and all donations are much appreciated.

Lost your dog?
Stray dogs without identication are kept for 5 days before being put up for adoption. Dogs with identication are kept for 10 days before being put up for adoption. Contact the shelter to check whether your pet is there. Some of the stray dogs are featured on the Greene County Animal Shelter Facebook Page but not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your dog.

Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need towels, blankets, hard and soft dog food, basic cleaning supplies and dog beds. We also have an Amazon Wishlist. See our Donation Page for other items we can use. You can also donate to our Spay/Neuter Fund. For more information about how you can donate, see our Donation Page. On behalf of the dogs thank you.
