Welcome to the Old Dominion Humane Society
We rescue dogs from high kill shelters in Virginia and surrounding states. We place our rescues in well matched foster homes where they can re-cooperate, and learn to love again. As a foster based rescue we get to know our dogs very well, so we are able to place them in homes that are best suited for the dog and the families needs. During a dog's foster period with ODHS we will get them needed medical care, they are spayed and neutered, microchipped, and their vaccinations are brought up to date.
We are a no-kill rescue. That means the dogs we take in stay with us until they have been adopted.
We have variety of shapes, sizes, and breeds available for adoption.
Our meet and greet center, located at 3602 Lafayette Blvd. Fredericksburg, Virginia, is open from 12pm-4pm on Saturdays.
We will work with you to match your family with a dog who will fit your lifestyle. We have many shapes, sizes, and temperaments of dogs available for adoption. We can match a dog's personality, energy level and size to meet your families needs for a pet.
We are a 501c3 non-profit rescue organization. We are all volunteer and foster based.
Foster with ODHS
Fostering a pet is a great way to give back to your community, and to help save the lives of homeless animals. It is both rewarding and fun.

Volunteer with ODHS
We have many volunteer opportunities. ODHS is volunteer based and we couldn't do it without the help we are given. Learn more about how you can help.
