Animal Control - General

Dogs are not permitted to run at large off the premises of the owner and must be leashed or otherwise under restraint and immediate control of the owner at any time they are off the premises.

All dogs must have a dog license issued annually by the Clarke County Treasurer's Office, located at 101 Chalmers Court.

The Animal Shelter is located at 225 Ramsburg Lane just west of the Berryville Corporate Limits.

In the event of an emergency and if there is no answer at the Shelter, the Officer may be contacted through the Clarke County Communications Office at (540)955-1234.

Local ordinances concerning vicious animals, destructive cats, animals running at large and animals creating frequent nuisance or disturbance to the neighbors are strictly enforced.
