Lee County Animal Pound is a small rural facility in the southwest of Virginia. While Lee County Animal Pound is not yet a no-kill facility, this is a goal we strive to achieve each and every day. For more information see the Lee County Animal Controlwebsite. From Highway 58, turn south onto State Route 70 and immediately turn left on Bus Shop Road. Follow the signs to the Pound. HOW YOU CAN HELP SAVE THE DOGS
Some of you may be aware that PAWS of SWVAhas been pulling and networking dogs from the Lee County Shelter over the past year. The Animal Control Officers have been great to work with and have done so much to accommodate and help with these efforts. Thanks to the Wise County Animal Rescue Coalitionworking with us to transport those tagged by larger rescues, many lives have been saved. Rescue partners have been tremendous. However, this is not sustainable and we need YOUR help if we are to continue helping save these dogs. We have to be able to transport directly from Lee County to Staunton, Va. If enough people sign up to help, we can possibly get a transport vehicle donated and a schedule established so one person is not carrying all the load. We do not just need transporters, we need overnight sites or fosters, help with vet visits, fundraising. None of this will happen without YOU making it happen. If you are interested in being a part of the solution, e-mail [email protected] or text Jo Anne at . Volunteers from adjoining counties also welcome. The pet in the photo (top right) is looking for a home. Click on the picture for more information about it. We do not respond to Facebook posts. We appreciate everyone who shares our posts and helps with trying to find homes for the lost furbabies in our facility. We only have two officers for entire county and are responsible for the cleaning and care of the shelter as well. We do not have a secretary or shelter staff. We are in the office (unless there is an emergency) from 8amam Mon-Sat and we try to leave a message on the answering machine if we are not going to be available at shelter during these times. We are more than happy to meet with you at different times by appointment. We have an extremely high volume of calls to answer. Our calls have to be categorized on a priority basis:
  • Emergency and cruelty cases for both domestic and agriculture animals and dangerous animal calls.
  • Strays
  • Owner surrender
If you want to surrender yourdog to Lee County, we strongly encourage you to bring it to the facility between 8amam Mon-Sat. FOUND A DOG?
See more information below about what to if you find a dog.

Lost your dog?
Stray dogs without collar are kept for 7 days before being put up for adoption. Dogs with a collar are kept for 12 days before being put up for adoption. Contact the shelter to check whether your pet is there. Some of the stray dogs are featured on the Lee County Virginia Control Facebook Pagebut not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your dog.

Adopting a dog?
Adoptions are free to the public, however, you must sign an Adoption Agreement, and a Spay/Neuter Agreement stating that you will have the animal spayed or neutered within a certain period depending on the age of the animal.

Please remember before animals are ready for adoption a holding period is required per state law. Stray dogs with a collar is 12 days starting the day of custody. Stray dogs WITHOUT a collar is 7 days starting the day of custody. Owner surrender dogs DO NOT have a holding period.
  • State law requires that adopted dogs be sterilized within 30 days of adoption.
  • State law requires that all dogs and cats be vaccinated for rabies.
  • Out of state adoptions must be spayed or neutered before leaving the state.
  • There are no fees associated with adoption.
Make sure that you are able to take your dog home on the day you adopt it. We will not keep a dog for you after its 'available' day.

What to do if you find a dog
If you find a stray dog, you have no specific duty to take the dog to the pound but you do have a legal requirement to report it to County Animal Control. Each county and city in Virginia has to have an animal control officer, and you are certainly within your rights to contact animal control to report the stray. See our opening times above.

If you decide to take in the stray, Virginia Code Section outlines what you have to do. This code section applies if you provide "care or safekeeping" to the animal, or if you retain the animal "in such a manner as to control its activities". Within 48 hours, you must:
  • Make a reasonable attempt to find the owner. If you can, ascertain who the owner is by way of a tag, license, collar, tattoo or other form of identification or markings;
  • AND
  • Notify the local pound where the animal was found, and provide the pound with your name and phone number, the location where you found the animal, and a description of the animal along with any information from a tag, license, collar, tattoo or other form of identification or markings.
You can find helpful tips and guidance about stray animals from the Humane Society of the United States. The most important consideration is safety - yours and the animal's. Remember that the animal will likely be fearful, and may be sick or injured. Be particularly careful if you find the animal in an area with traffic. Be aware that if you take in the stray, you take on the duty to provide the animal with adequate care. This includes the duty to provide veterinary care, so be prepared to pay the vet bills if the stray is injured or sick. The second most important consideration is to think lost, not stray, and do all you can to get the animal back to its owner. It is for this very reason that a violation of Section carries a civil penalty of up to $50 per animal. Try putting a long lead on a dog and telling him to go home to see if the animal knows its way home, hang large 'Found Dog' posters in the area where you found the dog, and take the animal to animal control or a vet to see if the animal has a microchip that will identify the owner. For more information see the Best Friends webpage.

Find the right dog for you
When looking for that new family member please remember to really think about the things you and your family want and need in a pet that fits the family lifestyle. Get to know your breeds! Some breeds require more space, exercise and circumstances than others. Even if you are going to adopt a mixed breed, look into what it's primary breed needs in a home, environment and exercise. Your new family member needs to be wanted by everyone in the family and included in your daily lives to be truly happy. Click here for more information on how to find the right dog.

Fostering a dog or cat
We have many animals at the shelter that are available to be fostered (given a temporary home until we find it a permanent home). If you would like more information on fostering or would like to apply to be a foster mom or dad please phone: . Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need towels, blankets, hard and soft dog food, basic cleaning supplies and dog beds or you may mail a donation to Lee County Animal Pound, Bus Shop Road, Jonesville, VA, On behalf of the dogs thank you. No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart. Changes to Dog Tethering Law
From July 1, , there are changes to dog tethering laws across the state of Virginia. The legislation expanded the definition of 'adequate shelter' for family dogs. It is illegalto leave tethered dogs outside when temperatures are below 32&#F or above 85&#For when the weather service issues warnings for hurricanes, tornadoes and other severe weather. The legislation also increases the minimum length of a tether from 10 feet to 15 feet. Additionally, dogs must be provided adequate shelter during hot weather that is properly shadedand does not readily conduct heat. During cold weather, the shelter must have a windbreak at its entrance and provide bedding material(such as straw, cedar shavings, or similar) that is sufficient to protect the animal from cold and promote the retention of body heat.
Keep your dog in the family

Lee County Domestic Animal Services's Adoption Process

Want more information about a specific animal you would like to adopt? Email [email protected]

Lee County Domestic Animal Services' goal is to place companion animals with responsible owners. Our first consideration must be for the welfare of the animal. Therefore, anyone wishing to adopt an animal must submit an adoption application for approval prior to visiting the animal, either online or in person at our shelter. After your application is approved, a volunteer or staff member will assist you in visiting with a pet during adoption hours, Monday through Saturday, a.m. to p.m.

About Lee County Domestic Animal Services

Lee County Domestic Animal Services has four divisions. The Pet Adoption Center is open Monday through Saturday from a.m. to p.m. Pets not claimed by owners are made available to the public for adoption. Applications may be submitted in person or online. Volunteers are on hand to help potential adopters select a pet that best suits their family and lifestyle. Two to three customer service representatives staff the Pet Adoption Center to approve applications and process adoptions.

Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why Should You Adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

Captain Thomas Weaver (Retired 09/) implemented the Cell Dog program after watching a television show about dog programs with inmates. A few months later six dogs entered the program on October 4, Since then we have trained and found over dogs forever homes.

In Deputies Dunn and Hawkins attended Animal Behavior College and obtained their Dog training certifications. Both Deputies Dunn and Hawkins provide training to the inmates involved in the program and oversee the daily operations within the program.

The dog training program teaches inmates how to train dogs in basic obedience through a week course. Upon graduation, the dogs are highly adoptable and possess obedience skills such as Crate trained, House trained, Loose leash walking, Sit, lay down, Stay, come when called and heel. Not only does the Cell Dog Program give a second chance to these second chance animals, it also provides job skills to inmates in the areas of dog training, dog grooming and veterinary assistant skills.
