The Nelson County Animal Control and the Humane Society/SPCA of Nelson County (aka Almost Home) are two entirely different organizations?

Animal Control is responsible for enforcing state laws and county ordinances involving domestic animals. They also handle complaints which can include abandoned animals, animal cruelty, and neglect, animal bites, spay and neuter violations, and animals running at large. Urgent animal complaints can be reported calling 911, non-urgent complaints can be reported to the center’s non-emergency number 434-263-7047.

DID YOU KNOW...The mandatory hold time for stray animals at Nelson County Animal Control is just 5 days.  This can be increased to 10 days for pets wearing a collar…hence the importance of your pet wearing a collar.  After the mandatory hold period is over, the animals are available for adoption through Animal Control, or may be transferred to the Nelson County Humane Society/Almost Home Pet Adoption Center if there is room for the animal or a foster is available. 

Animal Control's Supervisor, Kevin Wright and his staff, continue to do an amazing job.
