How you can help
There are a variety of ways you can make a difference — today.

Donate.

Your tax-deductible donations help the Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (FFCAS) provide vital support and care to animals suffering from illness, injury, neglect, abandonment or abuse. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.


You'll be directed to a secure site to make your donation.


To donate by mail, send a check payable to:
Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter
P.O. Box 2321
Centreville, Virginia 20122

Donate on Behalf.

If you would like to make a donation to recognize a special event or honor the memory of a loved one or beloved pet, please let us know by emailing us so we can send them a note in recognition of your gift.

If you're donating specifically to the Safe Haven program or for one of our "special needs"* animals, please note it in the "purpose" field of your payment.
*Once the special needs request is met, the FFCAS will put any remaining funds toward the care of other shelter animals.

Give through CFC.

Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter has been approved to participate in the next Combined Federal Campaign. Our CFC number is 88219.

Attend events.

Each year, the FFCAS hosts several fund-raising and pet adoption events. Learn about upcoming events, or contact us at events@ffcas.org.

Volunteer.

FFCAS is an all-volunteer organization. We rely on our volunteers to help with fund-raising events, adoption efforts and more. For more information about our current volunteer opportunities, please contact us at volunteerinfo@ffcas.org.

Are you a teacher, scout leader or parent looking for ways kids can help the Fairfax county animal shelter? Consider collecting donations for the shelter!

Other ways kids can help the shelter include creating artwork to hang at the shelter or their school that encourages adoption or making catnip toys for shelter cats. To learn more, please contact us at volunteerinfo@ffcas.org.

Consider adoption.

Loving pets are waiting at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter for their new families to find them. Visit our adopt a pet section to learn more.

Be a responsible pet owner.

Have your pet spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Fairfax County offers several reduced cost rabies clinics each year.

Purchase animal friendly license plates.

Want to show your support for spaying and neutering? Buy a specialty plate, and $15 from each sale goes toward spay-and-neuter programs in your area. To order, visit www.dmv.virginia.gov.
