Tux is a sweetheart!

Name:           Tux

Gender:         Male
DOB:             March 2016
Description:    Black and White/Tuxedo

TUX is a super sweet kitty who loves head rubs. He is a little shy when first meeting new people, but is quick to warm up to you.

Tux loves to nap in the sunlight and play with toys. He also likes playing with Leo - the big grey tabby cat in his foster home. They spend their days chasing each other around, playing hide & go seek, and snuggling. He loves suppertime and cuddling up on the couch with his foster mom. 

Tux needs a playful male feline buddy in his forever home. He also needs a quieter home with a patient caretaker who will help this sweet boy transition to new surroundings. So a home with adults or an older child or two would work well for Tux. 

This boy was abandoned outside (displaced by a baby) and brought indoors by a neighbor. He has come a long way from being a shy kitten to being a curious and much more confident kitty. Now safe in our care, Tux is ready for a home of his own.

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.
