Sussex County Animal Shelter is a small rural facility in the south east of Virginia. We have 22 dog runs in our shelter and 17 cat runs. This does not include the crates we have set up in several areas of the shelter filled with canines. We have crates set up inside one of our two main cat rooms, 16 cats we have divided by sex, living in two rooms set up especially for them to run and exercise. In 2023 we have brought in 543 animals. 2022 total intake was 777 animals. We are tracking to possibly hit an all-time high by the end of this year. Surpassing 2021’s 802 animals in our custody. Although we have a limited budget, the staff love and care for all animal residents and are willing to do what it takes to save all of them. Fosters, adoptions and rescues are welcome. We have three officers, one full time kennel person and three part-time kennel technicians. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us or just come see us here at the shelter. For more information see the Sussex County Animal Shelter website.

We have made a list of things needed at the shelter in case anyone would like to help out. Thank you so much in advance for always supporting us in taking care of all the wonderful babies we have. And a big thank you for everyone who has already donated to us.

 Amazon Wish List

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.
