The Loudoun County Animal Shelter is temporarily adjusting its schedule for adoptions. Beginning Monday, March 28, 2022, adoption hours will be 12:00 - 6:00 p.m. Monday - Sunday. The one-hour per day reduction will be in effect through Saturday, May 14, 2022.

The change is designed to enhance the management of comprehensive animal care activities and facilitate increased training for employees.

The facility provides a wide range of services, including pet adoptions; humane law enforcement; housing of stray, abandoned, or relinquished companion animals; dog license sales; volunteer and foster care opportunities; dispatch services; educational programs; and pet retention counseling. The facility also features a veterinary clinic and surgical suite for medical treatment of shelter pets.
