Lake Country SPCA
Questions and Answers
How do I adopt?

Adopting from LCSPCA is relatively easy. After coming in, visiting with the animals, and then choosing one. We have you fill out a form with your name, address, phone number, email address, vet name and number and, personal references. You must also furnish ID such as a driver's license or military ID car, which we make a copy or for the file.  We also ask that you sign a waiver stating that you have never been charged with or found quality of animal abandonment or abuse. We also give you a copy of the Virginia Animal Laws. The LCSPCA reserves the right to judge whether you and/or your home are suitable for a pet or pets, and to conduct a home inspection before or after the adoption, if deemed necessary. 

Should I bring anything with me?
It's always a good idea to be prepared when choosing to adopt a new pet. If you are adopting a dog, we recommend bringing a leash and collar with you. At times we have some donated and we can pass these on to the adopter, but there isn't a guarantee that we'll have some on hand. A crate to transport the animal in would also be a good idea, but at the least, have a towel or blanket ready for your back seat. If you are adopting a cat, you will definitely need a carrier of some kind with good ventilation. We will not permit a cat to leave the shelter unless they are being transported safety. In the event that you do not have your own carrier, we do have some available at a $5.00 charge.

Do you adopt out of state?

We adopt out of county and out of state on a case by case basis.

Can I adopt more than one animal?
State Law dictates that no more than 2 animals, in a 30 day  period, may be adopted out to any one household.

What if the animal and I don't click?
When you adopt from LCSPCA we do our best to match you with an animal that fits what your looking for. However, at times, this does not always work out. If you and your new pet are not clicking well, and we do ask that you give it at least a week to allow the animal to adjust, simply bring the animal back to the shelter. We will be more than happy to let you try out a new animal. Our desire is for you and your new pet to be completely happy together.
