Cornelious (white/tan) and Dusty (mostly brown) - are a bonded pair of male Guinea pigs. Both are approximately 1 year old. They are friendly little guys who like attention. Both are gentle and sweet boys who are looking to find a home together. They have their own cage along with many accessories that will go with them to their new home.
Bradley (Cooper), AKA Cue Ball - is an approximately 2-3 year old neutered male. We don't know why but, he was left tied to a pole in an empty parking lot on a cold and rainy day. Bradley can be a little shy at first but, once you give him a treat or two, he is your best friend for life. He is a very good walker on a leash and especially enjoys it when our shelter volunteers take him on long walks through our City parks. He has learned many basic commands from our shelter staff but is also being spoiled rotten. Our staff will be sad to see him leave but he very much needs a permanent, stable and loving home environment.
Chi Chi is a cross post for Town and Country Animal Hospital Please call (703)-273-2110
Chi Chi - is neutered male Yorkshire terrier. We were told that he is 8 years old but, he is likely a few years older. He was neglected by his original owner who took him to her veterinarian to be euthanized when she no longer wanted to be bothered with him. Fortunately, the veterinarian who examined him convinced his owner to release him to the hospital. Chi Chi was extremely thin and had severe dental disease which unfortunately led to him needing to have all of his teeth extracted and a portion of his lower jaw removed. Chi Chi does need to eat soft foods only and often needs assistance eating but is quite otherwise quite healthy. Chi Chi loves attention, gets along well with others and especially loves having a soft comfy bed to sleep in.
Riley is a 7 year old neutered male. He was released to us when a family member developed allergies. He is a sweet boy who likes to be a lap kitty. He does need to remain on a prescription diet but seems quite healthy otherwise. He is a big handsome boy who would love to find quiet and loving new home.
Dallas is a cross post for Town and Country Animal Hospital Please Call: (703)-273-2110
Dallas - is a 2 1/2 year old neutered male. He was released by his owner to Town and Country Animal Hospital after developing a urinary blockage. Since being treated and remaining on a special diet, he has not had any further problems. Dallas can be a little shy at first but is very sweet and loving once he gets to know you. He has been living at the hospital since early September and would very much like to find a loving home where he can be a normal happy cat again.
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.
