Pet Smart Adoption Event
Pet Smart Stores is sponsoring a Pet Adoption event on Friday February 12, Saturday February 13 and Sunday February 14.  We will have some of our pets available for adoption at the Central Park Pet Smart in Fredericksburg all three days!  Come on out and find your new best friend.  We still have a lot of kitties in need of a new forever home.  Please feel free to call us with any questions.  You can also check our Facebook page closer to the event to see who we are taking.

Our Mission

The Orange County Animal Shelter is responsible for providing humane care to unwanted, lost or abandoned animals. Our mission:
  • Protect the animals entrusted to our care
  • Find permanent homes for lost or abandoned pets
  • Promote responsible pet ownership
  • Improve quality of life in Orange County

Support Agencies
The Orange County Humane Society assists by providing volunteers for adoption events and by holding fundraisers to support the Shelter’s Emergency Veterinary Fund, spay/neuter program, microchip program and related endeavors to benefit the animals.

Animal Control - which collects stray, sick or aggressive animals and conducts animal welfare investigations - is a separate function of the Sheriff’s Office.

The Orange County Animal Shelter sponsors low-cost vaccination clinics every spring and fall. Rabies and distemper shots are available for both cats and dogs. These clinics are open to everyone, regardless of county of residence. Please ensure that your dogs are safely secured on leash and your cats either harnessed or in an appropriate carrier.
