Wine Event, Silent Auction, and Bracelets, Oh My!

Support the Animals

Friends has a lot going on this month–and whether you join us in person or online, you can take part in the fun and make a difference for pets at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (Shelter) waiting to find their forever homes!

As the sole fundraising, 501(C)(3) organization for the Shelter, the following activities help us financially support the medical, dental, behavioral and enrichment needs of homeless pets in Fairfax County, Va.

Friends 13th annual Wine, Whiskers and Wags event is this Sunday, May 19 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton, Va. Tickets will be sold at the event for $55.
