Who we are
We welcome enquiries from potential adopters and animal rescues. If you are not a resident of Wythe County or one of the adjacent counties, contact your local rescue to see if they will rescue the dog for you. Please phone about a specific dog rather than e-mail which may not be read in time. For information regarding the dog featured, please contact Wythe County Animal Control NOW on (276) 228-6003. We keep stray dogs 5 days so that the owner can claim them but you can express an interest before the 'available' date. We are a "kill shelter" but have not euthanized a dog in 6 years as we work with 4 local rescues and they are amazing at finding these dogs homes. Dogs collected by the Bland County dog warden are taken to Wythe County Dog Shelter. If you have lost your dog, go to the shelter because the shelter staff may not recognise your description of your dog. You only have 5 days to claim your dog. Have your dog microchipped and make sure your contact details are up to date. It may save your dogs life! For more information see the Wythe County Animal Control website.

Lost your dog?
Stray dogs without identication are kept for 5 days before being put up for adoption. Dogs with identication are kept for 10 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 Wythe County Dog Shelter Facebook Page but not all are put here so contact the shelter if you have lost your dog.

Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need towels, blankets, hard and soft dog food, basic cleaning supplies and dog beds. See our Donation Page for other items we can use. You can also donate to our Spay/Neuter Fund. For more information about how you can donate, see our Donation Page. On behalf of the dogs thank you.
