Meet Nikita, a 2 year old German Shepherd mix with a sweet tooth for adventure! Nikita is sweet and playful and always up for a, dare we say it... "walk". This girl loves to play but don't get us wrong she isn't bouncing-off-the-walls hyper, we would say she's just active. Nikita made her way to a local shelter originally being picked up as a stray. She has settled in great at her foster home, is potty trained and always on her best behavior. She is vey obedient and likes to show off the plethora of tricks she knows. When intro'd to other dogs Nikita has been very dominant so we think she's best placed in a home as an only dog. However, she is perfectly fine walking past other dogs on hikes etc. just probably would do best as the only dog in the household.

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 email us and ask when and where our next adoption event is!

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.
