Is your lost pet at RCACP?

Photos of animals running at large brought to the Regional Center by the public or by animal control officers are posted on these pages. The site is updated regularly and every effort is made to post photos of all stray/lost pets at the center. 

For a variety of reasons, your pet's photo may not appear in these pages and it is strongly recommended that you visit the Regional Center daily during normal operating hours to search for your lost pet.  Your lost pet may be waiting for you. For more information on any of these animals, call the Regional Center at 540.344.4922. Please have the animal number available when you call.

Please note:  The animals listed as strays will be removed from this page when their required hold time expires.  They will then be evaluated and either made available for adoption or transferred to the RVSPCA, Angels of Assisi, to another rescue organization, whever possible.  Those animals can be viewed by clicking on the "Pets Waiting for a Home or Rescue" link on the left side of this page.
