About Empty Shelter Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The Empty Shelter Project is a small foster-based animal rescue located in Northern Virginia. We believe that no animal should ever have to deal with the abandonment of being left at an animal shelter, and certainly no animal should ever be euthanized merely because of the lack of space. Every animal shelter should be an empty one. We take in many animals from shelters in danger of being put to sleep and animals on their way to animal shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please check pet listings to see which pets will be attending adoption events. If you are planning to attend the event for a specific dog please call to make sure pet is still on schedule to attend.

ESP holds adoption events every Sunday with the exception of the first Sunday of each month from 11 - 3 at the PetValu in Manassas located at 10079 Market Circle Dr.

Our Adoption Process...

So you've picked out the perfect pet..what do you do next?

1. Fill out an application - our application is available on our website (www.espnova.org/adopt). This is just to allow us to make sure that the pet you're interested in is a good match for your lifestyle and needs. For example, we do not want to place an elderly Chihuahua with someone looking for a running partner.

2. Meet and Greet - After your application gets the o.k. we like to bring the furry friend you're interested in over to your place so you both can get to know each other. We take pride in the fact that very few animals are returned after adoption.

3. Adopt! if everything goes well and you've found the right match, you just simply sign our adoption contract, pay the adoption fee and ride off into the sunset.
