There are numerous ways you can support the adoption of one or more animals at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter without actually taking all the animals home!

We have two sponsorship programs:

Pet Sponsorship

This program allows you to donate money to reduce your selected pet’s adoption fee, publicize their adoptablity on social media, donate gifts to the adopter, and/or enable additional behavioral training to increase adoptability.

Adoption Event Support Program

The shelter runs several special adoption events each year, and they need our help! Events such as half-price adoptions for cats during the busy summer “kitten season” and seasonal adoption promotions such as Home for the Holidays are critical in getting pets into new, loving homes. FFCAS provides funds to the shelter so they can offer reduced fees to adopters. You can be a part of this support by donating to this program, either as an Event Sponsor (covering all costs for a promotion) or a Contributing Sponsor. Every dollar helps save lives.
