Adopt A Pet

We have the following animals for adoption:


 Hammies4  Hammies - We have several young dwarf hamsters up for adoption. They were left in a local park inside a cardboard box with a free hamsters sign attached. It was a very hot day but fortunately 2 City of Fairfax Public Works employees spotted them and contacted Animal Control. They are all cute as can be, healthy, and very active.
 Icarus3  Icarus - is a handsome Polydactyl male (he has extra toes on his front paws). He is approximately 12-13 weeks old. He is sweet and playful but can be a little rough when playing with smaller kittens. Most of the time he is pretty laid back and would probably do well with a kitten his size or an adult cat. Icarus is up to date on his vaccines, has been dewormed, and has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia.
 Guy  Guy- is a 2-3 year old neutered male. He was rescued from a rural shelter by Pets Bring Joy. Guy needed corrective eyelid surgery when he was first rescued to help him see properly without discomfort. He is now well on his way to a full recovery. He is a super sweet boy who is very much a love bug. Guy is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.
 Butters1  Butters - is a 2-3 year old soon to be spayed female. She is a very sweet young lady who loves to give head bumps. She was originally found as a stray who was very thin and full of parasites. With deworming, a little TLC, and good veterinary care she is now feeling healthy and ready to find a loving home where she will be cared for properly. Butters is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia, FIV, 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.
