Loudoun County Animal Services

In-person and virtual opportunities 


LCAS is the municipal animal shelter and humane law enforcement for Loudoun County, Virginia. This organization resolves to serve our community by promoting public safety and the compassionate treatment of all animals through humane education, community outreach, sheltering and law enforcement. The LCAS volunteer family is made up of over 150 regular onsite volunteers and 200 foster families. They are dedicated to enhancing the lives of shelter pets and supporting staff. In addition, LCAS works with individual volunteers or volunteer groups to coordinate volunteer projects that serve to further enhance the lives of pets and animals in the community.

Please continue to check back as they are looking forward to re-launching our volunteer information sessions. For other ways to get involved, please consider the options in the "What do LCAS Volunteers Do" section. Thank you for your interest in helping the animals in Loudoun County.


How To Fundraise/Donate:

Start a donation drive (virtual):

Learn how to start your own donation drive. Collect toys or pet supplies and reach out to your neighbors, peers, family, and friends to support this cause.

1. Make a plan for when you want your donation drive to be. Create a flyer to share your information and spread the word.


3. Share your flyer and begin collecting! Remind your donors that a little goes a long way and that each donation is important.


4. Set a date and time to drop off your donations at LCAS! Email the volunteer coordinator to find a time that works for both you and the shelter.

How To Volunteer:

Read to shelter cats (in-person):

Our feline friends greatly enjoy having quiet company, not only does it help them feel better and more comfortable in the shelter environment, it also can help them get adopted faster. Bring your own book/e-reader/phone and spend some quality time providing quiet company to an adoptable cat! Sign up is required to help us allow for social distancing.
