Adopt A Pet

We have the following animals for adoption:


 AdoptAPet  All adoptable animals are available for viewing at Town and Country Animal Hospital from 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM on weekdays and from 7:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Saturdays.  9836 Fairfax Blvd., Fairfax, VA 22031.
 Chopper3  Finn - is an approximately 2-3 year old neutered male. He was found as a stray here in the City of Fairfax and never reclaimed. He is a very sweet natured young man who has not shown any signs of aggression towards people or other dogs. It is unknown how he is with cats. He can be a little timid and is scared easily by loud noises. With some love and patience hopefully he will overcome what ever happened to cause him to be so insecure. Finn is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for heartworms. 
 Milo 3  Milo - is a 10 year old neutered male beagle. Unfortunately, his owners were no longer able to care for  him. Milo is a sweetheart who always looks like he has a smile on his face. He is house broken and gets along well with other dogs. Milo loves to go for walks but is known to be an escape artist if left unattended in a fenced yard. Milo is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for heartworms. He has also had a recent dental cleaning and extensive lab work that did not show any signs of illness or chronic health problems.
 Abby  Abby - is a 3 year old spayed female Australian shepherd mix. Abby is good hearted young lady who gets along well with children, cats, and other dogs. Abby is housebroken and knows some basic obedience. Even though she looks more like a hound mix than an Aussie mix her personality is very much like that of an Australian shepherd. Abby is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for 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.
