We welcome enquiries from potential adopters and animal rescues. If you are not a resident of Wythe County or one of the adjacent counties, contact your local rescue to see if they will rescue the dog for you. Please phone about a specific dog rather than e-mail which may not be read in time. For information regarding the dog featured, please contact Wythe County Animal Control NOW on (276) 228-6003. We keep stray dogs 5 days so that the owner can claim them but you can express an interest before the 'available' date. The date the dog is listed as 'available' is NOT the day it will be put down but we may only keep the dog for 5 days after the 'available' date. Dogs collected by the Bland County dog warden are taken to Wythe County Dog Shelter. If you have lost your dog, go to the shelter because the shelter staff may not recognise your description of your dog. You only have 5 days to claim your dog.. Have your dog microchipped and make sure your contact details are up to date. It may save your dogs life! For more information see the Wythe County Animal Control website.
