 GuntherandTheo4  Theo and Gunther are one year old brothers who are looking to find a home together. They are believed to be housebroken but have not had much other obedience training. They were released to us due to their owner not having enough time to give them the attention or training that they needed. They are super friendly little guys who love everyone. They are both neutered, up to date on their vaccinations and have tested negative for heartworms.
Zuko6  Zuko is a cross post for his owner who is no longer able to keep him. He is a 9 month old neutered male shepherd mix. Zuko is very friendly and smart young man who likes to learn new tricks. He currently weighs 72 lbs. He is not expected to grow anymore but may fill out a little. Zuko is current on his vaccinations and heartworm testing. If you are interested in meeting Zuko please contact Yasmin at 703-473-7671 or Ibtihaj at 703-321-6502. 
 springfield31  James, George and Abe are approximately 9 week old male kittens. They were brought to us from the same apartment complex as the kittens below. When they first arrived they were flea infested, anemic, suffering from upper respiratory infections and of course had all of the usual kitten internal parasites. Within one week they went from sad looking orphans to extremely happy and healthier boys with wonderful temperaments. They love to play but are also happy to be held and snuggled. They received their first kitten Distemper combination vaccines last week but are still a little small for Feline Leukemia and FIV testing. The remainder of their kitten vaccines, combo testing and neutering are included in their adoption fees if returned to Town and Country Animal Hospital for those services.
 PeytonPeyton  Peyton (top, female), Georgia (middle female) and Van Gogh (bottom, male) are approximately 4 month old siblings who were brought to us by a local rescue group. They had been living outside an apartment complex in Springfield which had become over run with cats and kittens after many cats left behind by residents began to multiply. They were being fed and attended to by many of the residents but were not receiving veterinary care, vaccinations or spaying and neutering. All three are extremely friendly. They get along well with other cats, dogs, and children. They have been spayed and neutered, received their first distemper combinations, rabies vaccines, have tested negative for Feline Leukemia, FIV and heartworms, and have been dewormed for other internal parasites.

She unfortunately is a bit overweight and had to have some mats shaved from her back leaving a temporary bald area. She is a friendly gal who likes to sit in laps and loves treats.

Bacci is currently in a foster home. Please call for more information.

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.
