The Old Dominion Humane Society rescues dogs from across Virginia and other states from kill shelters. This non-profit organization offers bi-weekly adoption Sundays, making ap-paw-tunities for pets to find fur-ever homes. They rely on a foster dog program in which they match the dogs to the owner's lifestyle. The organization provides a crate, medical care, and food. In return, the dog has a safe home, receives socialization in a home environment, and is still available for adoption.
Committed to making bonds that last, the adoption process includes time for family and future Fido to have a meet-and-greet and become acquainted. All of the dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested, and microchipped for a fresh start with the new family. Adoptions are held on Saturday afternoons.
Volunteers are critical to the success of this organization. They mobilize for days like Cha-Cha Chihuahua Sunday in which they received chihuahuas in need of immediate care and placement. Volunteers are regularly needed for dog walking of the animals being held at the shelter. Volunteers help at the adoption events. They also take the dogs in their own cars to veterinarian visits. Donations of money are needed as well, but they post the exact articles they need on their website if you'd like to give that way instead.
