Orange Virginia

Amid this historic significance, Orange continues to be a place where commerce and the power of human ingenuity work not only alongside but in the context of our great national heritage. The Orange County Chamber of Commerce was organized in 1924 to advance the civic, commercial, industrial, and agricultural interests of the County of Orange, Virginia.

Today, we continue to promote the general welfare of our citizens and the prosperity of our County by developing a mutually beneficial network of local businesses and stimulating public support for our business community. Whether you're new to our community, 'born-and-raised,' or simply passing through, we hope that you'll appreciate Orange County for what it offers and continue to support our local economy.

2022 Message from Deanne Marshall, Executive Director
Deanne Marshall

On behalf of the Orange County Chamber of Commerce, I want to thank you for your membership and continuous support to our community. The Orange County Chamber mission is to promote business, enhance the economic environment, support community development, and act as a catalyst for improving the overall quality of life for our community and region. Orange County is a wonderful place to live, work and grow your business. As Executive Director, I want to encourage you to remain active in the community and in the Orange County Chamber. Let’s work together to make Orange County a place where businesses succeed and grow.

The Chamber presents an opportunity for all members to grow their network, and in turn, grow their business. We aim to provide a connection in a business environment that brings people and organizations together to support one another and advance our interest. I encourage each member to actively promote the Orange County business community by being patrons of our membership.

As the calendar turns to 2022, we plan to offer a host of various networking opportunities. The return of the Cash Mob, Women in Business, Member to Member Discount Program, Business First Coffee’s, and Business Afterhours just to name a few! I also intend to get to know all our members by visiting each business to take pictures and videos to share on our website and social media. We are proud to promote our business community to our members, residents, and visitors to our area. We are looking forward to a year of stronger relationships and a stronger business community!

The Orange County Humane Society of Virginia


Pictured - William Smith Board of Directors President

The Orange County Humane Society of VA (OCHSVA) was started in 1958 by 4 ladies that wanted to reduce cruelty and suffering of animals in Orange County. After 64 years their mission continues to guide our organization today. OCHSVA has four programs: Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Return; Pets in Place; Voicemail Help Line and providing Pet Food to those in need.

Seven years ago Andi Burman, a board member and passionate animal lover, passed away and provided an endowment so we would continue her work of caring for feral and homeless cats. In 6 years the Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Return program has sterilized, vaccinated and released thousands of community cats.

The Pets in Place program provides veterinary care assistance for low income citizens so they do not have to relinquish ownership of their dog or cat due to the cost of health care.

Our Voicemail Help Line provides a resource for citizens to find answers to animal questions and/or request help for their dog or cat. We do not provide medical advice but can direct you to a helpful Veterinarian that can.

Email: or call: 540 672 0069.

OCHSVA supports the Wilderness Food Bank with Pet Food. We provide low income citizens with dog and cat food and litter. For colonies of community cats that have gone through the TNVR program, we provide food to keep the colonies fed.
