The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is Fairfax County’s only open-access, municipal shelter. With four to five thousand animals coming through its doors each year, the shelter provides a safe-haven for dogs, cats, and small animals like guinea pigs, rabbits and pet birds. At any given time, visitors to the adoption center can choose from 40 cats and kittens, 25 dogs and puppies, and dozens of small animals, all available for adoption.
The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) rescues abandoned or displaced dogs and cats from the threat of euthanasia in over-crowded shelters or other at-risk situations and places them for adoption into loving homes. All animals in the care of LDCRF are spayed or neutered and fully vaccinated prior to adoption and any special medical needs are addressed.
