Mission & Vision
Through teamwork, dedication, and commitment to excellence, the Department of Animal Services will serve the community with distinction and honor, protect the public’s health and safety, and ensure the welfare of animals.
The department operates the Loudoun County Animal Shelter, which provides for companion animals that have been surrendered by their owners or found stray in the county. The Animal Shelter also offers pets for adoption.
The department's Animal Control Division enforces local and state animal laws and investigates reports of animal cruelty and vicious or destructive animals. The department also maintains a lost and found animal file, issues dog licenses, and assists citizens with a variety of animal issues.
Animal Services has an active community outreach program, including volunteer opportunities, humane education programs for schools and youth groups, and special events.
Anyone with questions about the department or animal issues in general can contact us via email at
or by phone.
