Amelia County Animal Shelter Partnership

Each week during the summer, the Animal Shelter will feature an animal in need of adoption or fostering (unless they have no animal in need). They will name the animal based on the month's literary theme provided by the library. The library will pick a book based on the animal's name or personality. The animal will be featured on the library and animal shelter's Facebook pages.
