About Us


You have reached the Gone to the Dogs website. Gone to the Dogs is a no-kill, all-breed/mixed breed dog rescue organization located in central Virginia. Gone to the Dogs specializes in re-homing dogs that have been abandoned, have been rescued after running out of time at kill shelters, or have lost their homes for a variety of reasons. The animals offered for adoption are healthy and well adjusted and have had some training; they are ready to waltz right into your hearts! Dogs that are not placeable for a variety of reasons (such as extreme old age or chronic skin conditions) find lifelong sanctuary here.
