Our Animal Shelter

Franklin County Animal Shelter 9246 Virgil H Goode Highway Rocky Mount VA 24151 Phone 540-483-7440

Where are you located? The shelter is located at 9246 Virgil H. Goode Hwy., Rocky Mount, VA  24151 (beside the county Landfill on 220N) 540-483-7440.

What are your hours of operation? We are open to the public Tuesday - Friday, 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. We are closed on Sundays, Mondays, and most holiday.

Can anyone turn an animal into your facility? No. We are a municipal pound, so we can only take in animals that are being relinquished or strays from Franklin County.

Are you a No-Kill shelter? FCAS is a municipal animal shelter. Although we do our best to find every healthy, adoptable pet a good home, we are not a No-Kill facility. Through a variety of programs, we make every effort to place all adoptable animals in our care. Some of these animals are euthanized due to lack of space and homes. FCAS works with many rescue groups in the county to help place the adoptable pets in our care.
