With your support, we help shelter pets in Fairfax County
Each year, nearly 5,000 pets, including cats, dogs, small mammals, reptiles and livestock, come to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. The Shelter opens its doors—and its heart—to care for each and every pet. But the Shelter can’t do it alone. Thankfully, Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter is here to help. With donor and volunteer support, Friends funds important needs throughout the Shelter such as behavioral training and dental or medical care beyond what the shelter’s budget can provide.
Together, we save lives!
Friends is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and not a part of the Fairfax County government. Click here to make a tax-deductible donation today.
