ADOPTING PETS: You do not need to arrive more than 15 minutes before Adoption Hours begin. If other parties are interested in adopting the same pet, we will hold a fair and impartial  drawing for all parties 18 years and older. "Winning" a drawing does not guarantee a pet adoption. Applicants must be screened by trained VCAS Adoption Counselors and complete a Meet Your Match application. Try to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of Adoption Hours.

*MONDAYS: VCAS is closed to the general public on Mondays however we are open for those who have found stray pets.
