Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a small, all-volunteer rescue located in Northern Virginia, serving the Washington D.C. metro area.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are passionate about the fact that pets bring joy to the people who love them, and vice versa! Our full mission statement is presented on our website, petsbringjoy.org, but in a nutshell, we rescue adoptable animals (primarily cats) at risk from "kill shelters," support their care through the kindness of volunteer foster homes, and work to find qualified, loving homes for them all.

We also encourage collaboration within the rescue community, working with smaller "grass roots" rescue organizations to help them with community outreach and fund-raising.

Come Meet our Pets:

Most of our sponsored cats are cared for by foster volunteers throughout Northern Virginia. We arrange for approved adopters to meet our kitties in their foster homes, where the kitties are in their most relaxed and natural environment.

We are also delighted to have been chosen as the resident rescue organization for PetSmart's new East Fairfax store, located at 9528 Main Street in Fairfax, Virginia 22031 (at the corner of Pickett Road and Main Street aka "Little River Turnpike"). You may *view* our kitties any time that the store is open (store phone: (571) 328-7770), but it's best if you contact us via email first so that we can arrange to have a PBJ volunteer meet you to open the cat room so that you can *interact* with them.

We hold adoption events most Sundays from noon - 2 PM at the store ... please check our website, petsbringjoy.org, for our latest adoption schedule.

Our Adoption Process:

We require completion of an initial on-line application; our evaluation process involves two phone interviews, a vet reference check, and a home visit.

Our adoption fee is $150 for a single cat or $250 for a pair, and covers their spay/neuter and all age-appropriate vaccinations. Our adoption fee helps us to recover veterinary expenses incurred while fostering the kitty (vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, other medical treatments as required).

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
