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.
 chastity3  Chastity - is a 6 month old spayed female. She was brought in as a stray with her 2 sisters. Chastity is rather skittish but very friendly once she gets to know you. After a few minutes of petting she becomes a non-stop purr box who loves to make biscuits and receive belly rubs. Chastity needs a home where she can initially be kept in a small area without a lot of hiding places in order for her to socialize and become comfortable with her new surroundings rather than hiding. With a little patience and lots of interaction Chastity could make a wonderful companion for someone who is willing to give her the chance. She is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV, Feline Leukemia and heartworms.
 Chopper3  Chopper - is an approximately 4 year old soon to be 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. Chopper is current on his 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.
