The City of Fairfax Animal Shelter is located at:
Town and Country Animal Hospital
9836 Fairfax Boulevard, Fairfax, VA 22030
We have the following animals for adoption:
Jackie is an 8 year old beagle and Jack Russel type mix. Unfrotunately, her owner passed away and she is now looking for a new loving home. Jackie is still quite active and playful. She gets along well with other dogs and would most likely do well with cats but she especially loves people. Jackie would not do well in an apartment or a condo. She is a barker and needs plenty of room to run and play.
Humphrey is a sweet 8 year old neutered male. He was found howling inside a parking garage on an extremely cold day. Noting that he was obviously lost and scared, employees of the businesses contacted Animal Control and Humphrey has been with us since. Humphrey has a micro-chip. However, the person the chip is registered to, lives hours away and had rehomed Humphrey several years ago. They could not remember the name of the person who adopted him. Every effort was made to try and locate Humphrey's owners but unfortunately no one ever did come forward. Humphrey is obviously used to being an indoor cat and is desparately seeking a new home where he will be not only loved but also kept safe and warm.
Humphrey is currently with a foster. Please call our office in order to make arrangements to meet him, 703-385-7919.
Saint - is a loving approximately 1 year old neutered male. He is a playful young man who according to his former owner, loves to be wherever his people are. Unfortunately, his former owner's living situation changed and he was no longer able to keep Saint. He loves to be petted and gives plenty of head bumps along with a loud purr to show his appreciation. Saint also gets along well with other cats and would most likely do well with a cat friendly dog.
Saint is currently in a foster, please email Pets Bring Joy through their website for further information. www.petsbringjoy.org. Thank you.
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.
