The City of Fairfax Animal Shelter is located at:
We have the following animals for adoption:
Zachary - is an 11 year old neutered male Chihuahua whose owner passed away after a long illness. Unfortunately, during his owner's illness some of Zachary's needs were neglected. His toenails were extremely overgrown and his teeth were in very bad shape. Upon arriving Zachary's nails were trimmed and most of his teeth required extracting. Zachary's lab work looked good and he seems to be in very good health otherwise. He does need to eat soft foods only. Zachary is a timid at first but very curious and loves everybody. Even when he is in a new environment and a little nervous his tail never stops wagging and he's happy to be loved on. Zachary would do well in a quiet home where he can be someone's beloved lap dog but he also gets along well with children and other dogs. Overall, he is a giant snuggle bug in a pint sized body. Zachary is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for heartworms.
|Hope - is an approximately 10 year old spayed female. She is a big girl with lots of love still to give. She's had it rough recently with her owner moving and leaving her behind. Neighbors had been caring for her in hopes that her owner would eventually be coming back for her. When that never happened she was brought to us in order for her to find a new permanent and loving home. Hope is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia.

|Gizmo - is Hope and Ziggy's sister. She is also a 10 year old spayed female. Don't let her sometimes pouty look fool you. She is a non-stop purr machine who craves attention. She is a super sweet gal with striking markings and beautiful gold eyes. She is also up to date on her vaccines and negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. Now with Pets Bring Joy.

|Candy - is a 1-2 year old spayed female. She was brought to us along with 3 other cats from another shelter that was overcrowded. She is a sweet young lady who loves to make biscuits in her favorite bed. After having been bounced around some the past couple months she would love to find a permanent loving home. Candy is current on her vaccinations, has been dewormed, and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.|
|Ms. Bigglesworth - is a 5 year old spayed female. Her owner was moving and could not take her with him. She is a sweet lady who likes attention. She had been living with a dog and a small child and got along well with them. She can be a little timid in new environments at first but warms up with time. Ms. Bigglesworth is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia.|
|MJ - is a 2 year old spayed female whose owner was moving and could not take her with him. She is a sweet gal who loves to purr. Her gorgeous green eyes compliment her striking tortoise tabby coloring. MJ is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.|
|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.|
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.
