I started out caring for Stanley and Oliver when their previous owner (I will call her Lisa) would have to go for stays in the hospital due to various injuries having to do with falls. Lisa is an elderly lady, but she bounced back every time. After a long stay in the hospital and me volunteering to house the cats until she got out she decided she did not want them once she got settled into her new apartment. So with me they have been since then. They are special boys that deserve the very best and I will explain why:
Let me tell you a little about these boys (They are littermates): Stanley is a beautiful, slender, black cat; I call him my mini panther. He is very friendly and does not shy away with guests coming to the house. He sleeps curled up next to my legs every night. Oliver is a rather large (He has lost weight since coming to live with me), grey tabby who loves sleeping a good part of the day. He's a lovable dude who does not like being held, but loves to be pet. He sleeps on my hand/arm every night, like my own, personal hand warmer. The boys will talk to you, but not to excess. I adore them. Despite less than ideal conditions where they came from, they use the litterbox faithfully and they are UTD on a check-up and vaccines.

About Pets Bring Joy

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,, but in a nutshell, we rescue adoptable animals (primarily cats) at risk from "kill shelters," emphasizing adult cats who often get passed over in favor of kittens. We support them 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 in their homes 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 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 regularly hold adoption events at the store on Saturdays ... please check our website,, for our latest adoption schedule.

We also have animals housed at the PetMAC in DC. Please visit their website:; visit Lori at the PetMAC DC store 7 days a week or email Lori at for more information.

Tango Pet Depot... is another place to see some of our kitties. Their store is located at 11213 Lee Hwy Suite N in Fairfax, VA 22030. Please visit their website at or check them out on Facebook.

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.
