Animal Care Center

Amherst County Animal Care Center is dedicated to serve and protect the public's health and safety and to assure the welfare of animals by promoting and providing for their safety, humane and lawful treatment.
 
The Amherst County Animal Care Center, which provides for unwanted, abused and stray animals, falls under the Administrative Division of the Amherst County Sheriff's Office. The Care Center does not handle animal adoptions, that is done by the Adoption Center, operated by the Humane Society of Amherst County. The Adoption Center is in the same building, however.
 
The department maintains a animal lost and found file, reunites animals to their family, issues dog licenses and assists citizens with a variety of animal issues and concerns.
 
The Animal Care Centers Staff also participates on local and county animal rescues along with maintaining the facility to meet State and Local regulations governing sanitary conduct.
 
Anyone with questions about the department or animal issues in general can contact us at anytime.
