Adopt A Pet

We have the following animals for adoption:


Free micro-chipping for all animals adopted from the City of Fairfax's Animal Shelter.

 alex5  Casper - is an approximately 1-2 year old Bichon/poodle type mix. He is a soon to be neutered male who weighs about 26 lbs. Casper was found as a stray running in busy traffic along Main St. with a leash attached. We believe he was actually dumped as he was very shy and obviously not well cared for. Unfortunately, Casper was found to have problems in both of his hips and will be requiring 2 surgeries over a period of time. The veterinarians at Town and Country have kindly offered to perform his surgeries as a reduced cost and have assured us that he will be able to live a happy pain free life once he has fully recovered. Casper also tested positive for Lymes Disease but is responding well to treatment. Casper is still a little shy but has made huge leaps since arriving. He has a super sweet temperment and loves to play once he's had a few minutes to get to know someone. Casper would very much like to be able to spend his recovery time in a comfortable home rather than a noisy kennel. He is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for heartworms.
 rascalwrangler 022


Wrangler - is a cross post for Town and Country Animal Hospital. He is neutered male Rottweiler mix who is about 2-3 years old. A Town and Country client rescued him from a rural shelter that no longer had space for him but was unable to keep him herself. He was originally heartworm and Erlichia positive but has been treated for both. He is a super sweet guy who loves people and kids but would do best in a home without other dogs. Wrangler is current on his vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting Wrangler please contact Town and Country directly at 703-273-2110, and ask to speak with their practice manager Andrea.

 Frito  Frito - is a neutered male Chihuahua mix. He is believed to be between 6 and 7 years old. He is a very happy and friendly little guy. He can be a bit protective of his toys or treats and would do best in a home without small children. He loves attention and very much wants to be a lap dog. Frito is current on his vaccinations and deworming. He has also tested negative for heartworms. 
 Mistytnccats 065  Misty - is a 1-2 year old spayed female. She was found as a stray in a local church parking lot. She is a super friendly gal who would love to be somebody's lap kitty. She loves everyone and loves attention. Misty is current on her vaccinations, has been dewormed, and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia, FIV, and heartworms. Misty is currently in the care of Pets Bring Joy cat rescue and can be viewed at the Pickett Rd. PetSmart. 
 jane 015  Feather- is a 1-2 year old spayed female. She was rescued by a local rescue group from a rural shelter that could no longer hold her. Unfortunately, the rescue group was short on space as well so they brought her to us. She is a very friendly young lady who likes to play. She loves to give head bumps and begs for attention. This sweet girl has already been through a lot and would love to find a stable, loving, and permanent home. Feather is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV, Feline Leukemia, and heartworms.


Adoption fees are $150 for cats and dogs and $20 for other small animals.

All animals are examined by a veterinarian prior to their adoption. Dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated as is appropriate for their age, and dewormed. Dogs are tested for heartworms and cats are combo tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV. If a kitten or puppy is still too small to spay or neuter adopters have the option of only paying a $75 adoption fee and later taking the animal to a veterinarian of their choice for spaying or neutering at their cost or they may pay the $150 adoption fee and have the animal spayed or neutered at Town and Country Animal Hospital at no additional charge once the animal is old enough.
The adoption fee on most small pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc. is $20.
