Press Release - Animal Shelter and Parks & Recreation to Host Dawgs & Dogs Adoption Event

ORANGE COUNTY, Va. – The Orange County Animal Shelter, in partnership with the Parks & Recreation Department, is preparing to host a dog adoption event at Skydog Orange Dog Park, located within Booster Park, at 11177 Bloomsbury Road, Orange, VA. The event will be held on Saturday, October 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

Those interested in adopting a dog are encouraged to attend with the whole family, including any current dogs, to find their perfect pup. Many adorable, adoptable dogs will be onsite and ready for play in dedicated sections of Skydog Orange Dog Park. 

Additional benefits of attending this event will include pet-friendly giveaways, free hot dogs, and most importantly, half-price adoption fees. The Orange County Animal Shelter has never offered reduced adoption fees before. Those that begin the process onsite at the event and satisfactorily complete all necessary adoption steps within a month will be eligible for this special reduced rate. 

Same-day adoption will be available if all required steps can be completed onsite. Those interested in a same-day dog adoption at the event should contact Gina Jenkins, Animal Shelter Director, at (540) 672-1124 or for details about required information.
