In recognition of National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, Friends is hosting a Virtual 5K Run/Walk or any other activity that achieves 3.2 miles on a date and time of your choosing between April 30 and May 10.
Friends hopes you and your pets are staying healthy and safe. While things are shut down, Friends has been up and running, ensuring pets at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter get the funding needed to help them find forever homes. Curious as to what we are up to? Read about it today!
Cucu, as an older and blind senior dog, may not be everyones idea of the perfect match. But thanks to a media-sponsored post, she’s now in a new, loving forever home! She has two canine siblings now– a sister (in picture, right) and a brother (not pictured) who is also blind. Her mom says, “Cocoa (aka Cucu) has settled in and is the perfect addition to our family…And we absolutely adore her. She is so sweet.” Three cheers for Cocoa and her awesome new family! Many thanks to Beatin’ Feet Dog Walking for sponsoring the post that connected her with her family!
