Donate to Galax Carroll Grayson Animal Shelter

Please Donate to Help the Dogs and Cats

On average, we use around 25 lbs of dry dog food, 10 lbs of cat food, 5 cans of dog food, 12 cans of cat food, and 15 lbs. of litter daily.

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.

The Galax Carroll Grayson Animal Shelter is a regional shelter operated jointly by the three local governments (Galax City, Carroll County and Grayson County) under the requirements of the Code of the Virginia. The shelter accepts animals as required under the Code and works to place animals back with their owners, adopt them to new owners, or place them with other non-profit animal welfare agencies that may be able to adopt them. Animals are transferred on a first come first serve basis, so always contact the Shelter to check that the animal you are interested in is still available. If you are interested in becoming an animal welfare agency, please call 276-236-5773.

Galax Carroll Grayson Animal Shelter is a small rural facility in the southwest of Virginia.
