Adopt Virginia county shelter animals

County animal shelters are always packed with wonderful animals looking for a chance at a forever home. Many of the dogs and cats living at Rikki's can be adopted, but we encourage you to start your search with animals in county shelters -- the Orange County shelter is just down the road from us.

You can find a list of Virginia county shelters at:

Many county shelters will do same day adoptions, but call before you drive out to find out what their exact adoption requirements are.

If you are looking for a cat or kitten, consider adopting two at the same time(especially bonded pairs or cats from the same family). Most cats really enjoy the company of other cats, and two cats are not harder to take care of than one cat alone.
