 male kitten cutey pie adorable sweet lovable  Petey - is an approximately 9-10 week old male kitten. He was found up under the engine of a car on a cold day. Even after his rough start, Petey is just a sweet and happy as a kitten could be. He is currently in a foster home with 2 other young cats and gets along very well with both. If you're looking for a little boy with lots a personality and a big heart, Petey is the guy for you.
 spayed female young sweet playful cute  Cracklin Rose - is an approximately 1 year old spayed female. She came to us from a rescue in Blacksburg that was running short on space. Unfortunately, when she first arrived she had a slight upper respiratory infection that delayed her being placed up for adoption. She is real sweetheart who wants as much attention as you are willing to give her. She's a playful sweet gal with a huge purr. Cracklin Rose would very much like to move on to the stage stage of her life of living in a permanent loving home.

 Lil' One was found as a stray with a piece of her tail missing and serious injury to part of what was remaining. Through it all she has continued to be an absolute sweetheart. Now that the injured portion of her tail has been removed and, has begun to heal, she has learned an adorable habit of wagging her tail like a dog (not at all like a cat who's annoyed but actually like a very happy dog). 

Currently, Lil' One is in a foster but arrangements can be easily made for anyone who would like to meet her. Just give us a call and her foster Mom would be happy to set up a time to show her off.

 Mizu is 6-7 month old spayed female. She was extremely timid when she first arrived as a stray but, with the help of a wonderful foster Mom she has become quite affectionate and outgoing. She loves having a human to play with her but is also good at keeping herself amused with her favorite toys. She would very much like to fine her permanent home in time for the Holidays.

Mizu is with the same foster Mom as Lil' One. Please call 703-385-7919, in order to set up a time to meet her. Their foster Mom loves to show them off.

   All of our kittens have received at least their first set of kitten vaccines, have been combo tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV and have been dewormed. Their adoption fees include returning to Town and Country Animal Hospital for their spaying or neutering.


Adoption fees are $150 for kittens, cats, puppies 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 young to spayed or neutered, adopters have the option of paying only 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.
