Found and Adoption
Last item for navigation

All found and adoptable animals can be found on the City of Warrenton Animal Control Facebook page. 

There is a $50 fee to adopt an animal at the Warrenton Animal Shelter. You must visit the shelter to fill out an adoption form. Adopters are given a voucher for 25% off spay or neuter at the Warrenton Veterinary Clinic. It is the responsibility of the Adopter to spay or neuter the animal within 30 days of adoption. Proof of spay or neuter from a licensed veterinarian will be required. Animal Control Officers will follow up if no response has been received within this time period.

Please note: The City of Warrenton works closely with local animal rescue groups. In certain cases the needs of the animal necessitate the care of that animal be turned over to an approved department of agriculture rescue group and may not be available for adoption through the city. The well being of the animals in Animal Control’s care take precedence.

Donations are accepted. Please contact the animal shelter for a current list of items needed. Regular priority needs are: Cat litter, litter boxes, dish soap, bleach, liquid laundry detergent, paper towels, Kongs® or other heavy duty toys the large dogs cannot destroy. Gift certificates to animal supply stores are especially welcomed. Needs are changing constantly depending on the season and the current resident animals, so please call. Thank you, for making whiskers purr and tails wag!

Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks. For insurance purposes, volunteers must be 18 years of age and fill out a City of Warrenton volunteer job application. For the safety of the volunteers and the animals, volunteers will go through a tiered training system to quantify their ability to handle specific level tasks required for care of the animals. Animal care tasks can range from cleaning their area, socializing, walking, grooming, feeding and fostering the animals.
