From January 1, 2020 to September 10, 2020, data shows a 20% increase (226 to 272) in speed related fatalities and a 22% increase (190 to 232) in unrestrained fatalities compared to the same time in 2019.

Speeding endangers everyone on the road, excessive speeding is occurring in every community. Excessive speed injures or kills pedestrians, bicyclists, operators of motor vehicles, as well as passengers in motor vehicles. In 2019, speed related crashes killed 349 people on Virginia roadways and there were 274 unrestrained fatalities.

We all need to do our part in changing these statistics. This is you...or your family...or your friend.

The Greene County Animal Shelter of VirginiaCHAMP HAS BEEN RESCUED!!
We deal with dogs everyday but our Champion Champ is a guy we will never ever forget.... Champ came into our shelter weighing almost 20lbs starved. Champ was in our care for almost 2 weeks and we are proud to say he left for rescue weighing 33lbs today. Champ was cared for by the wonderful staff at Vetss where he stayed for 12 days. Champ truly is a champion as he regain strength and began to walk again after not being able to even lift his head when first coming into our care. It was truly a situation where “will this dog even pull through this and be able to walk again?” As our hearts cracked and our emotions were above us to sit and see the amazing abilities of Champ as he walked, sat and held his head high was speechless. We can’t thank enough to each person who donated items, funds, your time, your thoughts, the visits and for just reaching out. Champ will remain in our hearts as his story will travel with him as he starts his new journey in Michigan. Champ was loved by so many people and became a dog in the community that had so many people rooting for him. Please keep Champ in your heart and your hopes as we keep rooting for him as he becomes more of a Champion than he is now. We would like to send a thankful thank you to Greene County Sheriffs Office for making an arrest in this case, Greene County Animal Control officer Schmitt and officer Proffitt. Champ is now making his way to Liberty’s Dream Animal Rescue in Michigan. Champ deserves a new beginning and we want each of you to give your love as Champ makes his way with the transporter. Thank you Nancy with the rescue for your compassion we felt with you and for helping us give Champ a new beginning. Here’s to Champ! Today is officially a day to be champion!! Please hold your tears back as Champ would want us all to smile❤️
