Animal Adoptions and Rescues

Caring For Creatures
A great place to find a special furry friend to add to your family.

Animal Connections
A wonderful place to find your next furry canine companion. Dogs stay in foster homes until they find their forever home.

Fluvanna SPCA
Numerous animals are awaiting a forever home at the local SPCA.

Project Perry, Central Virginia Parrot Sanctuary
This is a great place to volunteer and learn more about parrots. Still considered a wild animal, parrots should not be a companion animal unless a great deal of education about living with them is obtained. Project Perry can help you learn, and then if you are up to the task, possibly adopt a parrot into your forever home.

Peaceful Passings
A resource for people with elderly or ailing pets to help them through difficult times.

Americans with Disabilities
I often get asked about the regulations for Service Dogs. This is a link to the updated laws and requirements. Any trainer can help you train a service dog if you have a disability. The service dog must be able to perform at least two specific tasks to help you. Please note that Emotional Support (Comfort Dogs) are not covered under the ADA law. Mental Health dogs must be able to perform specific duties, not just a dog that accompanies you. If you would like to have a service dog, please be sure your dog is well trained and a good ambassador in public for all service dogs.
