Essex Shelter is a county run animal shelter serving the needs of orphaned pets of Essex County, VA. We are a tiny, rural shelter that fills up quickly. We are off the beaten path for SPCAs or Humane Societies to take our dogs and cats. We network heavily with rescues and look for suitable adoptable forever homes. We have 12 kennels wrapped around for dogs and a small cat room. Time is not on our animals side, and we work very hard to save them all.
