About Us
The City of Fredericksburg Animal Shelter has commonly been known as the City Pound, WELL THOSE DAYS ARE OVER! We now have a New Name, (City of Fredericksburg Animal Shelter), a New Look and a New Attitude!

The City Of Fredericksburg Animal Shelter is run and funded by the City of Fredericksburg and is under the jurisdiction of the Fredericksburg Police Department. The functions of animal control and the shelter are to enforce the city’s animal control laws, take in lost, stray, and owner surrendered dogs and cats. We are a minimum kill shelter. Dogs and cats that are brought in as strays have to be kept for a minimum of 4 days; if unclaimed, they then become the property of the City of Fredericksburg. After the 4 days, the animals are evaluated and then put up for adoption. At this time, the cats are socialized and the dogs are started on an obedience program as time allows. Unfortunately, due to limited space, some of the dogs and cats may have to be euthanized to make room for the new ones. The dogs and cats, which are adopted, have a small adoption fee that includes spaying/neutering and a rabies shot.

Many dogs and cats are surrendered to the shelter because of their behavioral problems. Most of these problems have simple solutions and can be resolved with some owner education, basic obedience classes, being spayed or neutered and a little bit of the owner’s time.

Fredericksburg has an existing and growing problem with stray and feral cats. We are working hard to get this problem under control, but need your help as a responsible pet owner. We need the citizens of Fredericksburg to start spaying and neutering their cats and dogs to help control this over population!

Our friendly staff includes Micky Moellering (Animal Control Officer) and Yvonne Gerhardt (Shelter Manager).
