Hot Cars Can Be Deadly for Pets
The internal temperature of a vehicle can become dangerously hot very quickly even with mild temperatures outside. Keep pets safe – do not leave pets in a vehicle when the temperature is greater than 70 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Be a hero – help us to spread the word by downloading a poster about pets in hot cars! Then, use it to tell your family, friends and neighbors about the importance of keeping pets cool during the warm weather ahead. Check out this video from Chief Mark Stacks about how Officers respond to calls about pets left in hot vehicles.
Adopt Your Piece of History – Adopt a Shelter Cat
LCAS Celebrates Relationship that Spans 12,000 Years
To celebrate the long history of the relationship between humans and cats, we have launched a cat adoption campaign which will feature photographs of shelter cats with notable friends of the organization, such as Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott K. York. The campaign, “Adopt Your Piece of History – Adopt a Shelter Cat,” will run through October and is aimed at encouraging residents to add a feline friend to their family or to become involved in their community in an effort to improve the lives of cats.

Construction on Route 7 West
There is extensive construction on Route 7 West approximately three miles before the exit for Route 9. Often, two lanes of traffic are condensed to one lane for a portion of the day. Delays have been as short as a few minutes to approximately 30 minutes in duration. It is best to check online for road conditions since you may need to allow more time for travel to LCAS. If you plan to visit, be sure to check our Hours of Operation page for days and times that we are open to the public.
Who We Are
The staff of Loudoun County Animal Services champions the humane treatment of all animals in the county through compassionate and innovative approaches to animal sheltering, law enforcement, education and community outreach. We work each day to ensure a compassionate, humane community for animals and people. LCAS operates an animal shelter, which provides for companion animals who have been surrendered by their owners or found stray in the county. The shelter also has pets for adoption. Officers enforce local and state animal laws and investigate reports of animal cruelty. In addition, LCAS maintains a lost and found animal directory, issues dog licenses and assists citizens with a variety of animal issues. For more information, contact LCAS at 703-777-0406 or by email.
