Adopt A Pet

We have the following animals for adoption:

 photo 1 (9)  Chunk - is a male Guinea pig who was abandoned at a local pet store. He appears to be a young adult. He is very sweet and adorable but a little shy at first.
 IMG_2457  Bitsy - is an approximately 10 year old spayed female. She is a very friendly and loving cat who had belonged to the late City of Fairfax resident and benefactor Geraldine Sherwood. Bitsy had recently been living among a group of other semi feral outdoor cats which Mrs. Sherwood had also been caring for (Bitsy is not at all feral). This is why she has one ear that is cropped. She is a healthy happy kitty who is very curious and with a little time would probably make a wonderful indoor lap cat. She has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia and is current on her vaccinations. 
 Sparta - is a non stop super loving purr box. She was found as a stray inside Ranger Rd. Park. She is approximately 1 year old, has been spayed, tested negative for both FIV and Feline Leukemia, has been dewormed, and is now up to date on her vaccinations.
 IMG_2520  Cece and her babies - Cece was also found inside Ranger Rd. Park along with one other pregnant female cat. Cece's 2 babies were just born  at the City's animal shelter on April 3, 2014. Cece is a very sweet cat and a good Mother to her babies. She is approximately 1-2 years old. All 3 will be available for adoption beginning May 29, 2014. Cece has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. She will be spayed and vaccinated prior to her adoption. 
 mainecoon  Bavik and Stella are a Crosspost for Another Rescue - These 2 are a bonded pair of Maine Coons. Their owner had to give them up due to divorce. They are currently in a foster home. If you would like more information please send an e-mail to 


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.
