Must be adopted as a pair

KATHERINE & MASON are adorable buddies who need to be adopted together. These best buddies need a quiet home with patient caretakers who understand Katherine's special needs.

KATHERINE is a happy, friendly special needs girl who came into SPCA's care as a tiny kitten who fit into the palm of your hand. She was found by a young girl on the side of the road. Katherine has a slight head tilt and it sways back and forth a bit but this doesn't affect her balance - she has no problem walking a straight line or jumping up and down on things. She has been evaluated by a veterinary neurologist who says her slight neurological disorder is most likely caused by a congenital defect near her inner ear. Katherine functions well, her condition will not change over time and no medication is needed. However, her forever family needs to be patient when introducing her to new surroundings, and be sensitive to the impact loud noises have on her. When Katherine was 3 months old, she was introduced to Mason in her foster home. He has become her best buddy and her 'rock'. 

MASON is a gorgeous fluffy orange kitty. He is a friendly kitty who is confident and mellow. He has a loud purr motor and loves to be cuddled by his foster family. Mason has active, playful moments but he's more of a couch potato! This sweet boy has also learned to watch over his buddy, Katherine. They are never far away from each other and make an interesting pair of lovable kitties. Mason was found outdoors all by himself as a young kitten by a mail carrier. He simply walked up and introduced himself! Who could resist taking in this orange ball of fur?

These kitties do fine with adult cats, laid-back, cat-friendly dogs and understanding kids. They are special kitties who are looking for a special home.

About SPCA of Northern Virginia

About Our Rescue Group...

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Northern Virginia is a non-profit, all-volunteer, private organization established by local concerned citizens to rescue domestic animals from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. We receive all our funding from membership dues, donations, and fundraising events. We are always striving to enlarge our animal rescue operations and expand our services to the community. Our voluntary Board of Directors, committee members, and volunteers are responsible for all SPCA activities. We do not have a shelter facility, and depend on foster parents to care for domestic animals until adoption.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs are available to meet at twice monthly adoption events in Fairfax, VA.

Our cats are available to meet you in their foster homes
by appointment weeknights or weekends.

Our Adoption Process...

Please read our cat adoption guidelines (at We put a lot of financial and emotional support into our cats and want them placed in homes where they will be members of the family for the rest of their lives. Indoor cats, with care, can live up to 20 years. Not everyone agrees with all of our guidelines. Please read our explanations and talk to our volunteers. If you disagree with us, we suggest you adopt a cat from a different source such as a local shelter. When you adopt a cat from us, you must sign a legal contract stating that you will comply with our guidelines. The adoption fee is $150 for one cat and $250 for two.

For those interested in cat adoptions, all potential adopters must read our adoption guidelines (available on our website at, then meet the cat in person either at an Adoption Fair or in their foster home. We take applications only after you've met the cat and we both feel it's a good match.

All adopters interested in adopting a dog must meet the dog in person, and submit an application. A housecheck is done, and references are checked. If approved, the dog will be placed in the home for a two-week trial period, to make sure that it is a good "fit" for both people and dog. If it is, the adoption is finalized and the adoption fee is paid. We do not adopt outside of the Washington DC metro area.
