We help homeless animals in Fairfax County
More than 5,000 animals, including cats, dogs, small mammals, reptiles and livestock, come to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter each year. The shelter opens its doors—and its heart—to care for each and every animal. But, the shelter can’t do it alone. Thankfully, the Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter is here to help. Through donor and volunteer support, we provide medical care, food, supplies and so much more to help the shelter care for these loving animals. In doing so, we help save lives—together.
The FFCAS is an independent 501(c)(3) all-volunteer organization, and not a part of the Fairfax County government. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law and are gratefully accepted, no matter the amount.
