COCO & MAIZE are sweet, playful girls who share the same foster home. They have different personalities, but have become good buddies and need to be adopted together.

These girls are typical kittens who love to play! They like to chase each other and pounce on anything that moves. They are huge fans of cat toys, balls, feathers and hair bands. They also enjoy looking out the window watching the birds.

COCO is such a sweet girl. She is all black with just a touch of white fur on her chest with beautiful yellow eyes and shiny black fur. Coco enjoys being held and cuddled. She's known for jumping up on your lap and falling asleep, especially when you're working on the computer! Coco loves attention and is pretty laid back. She is an absolute sweetheart!

MAIZE is a beautiful tuxedo kitty. She is super playful and extremely curious. She comes when called and loves her kitty treats! Maize is full of personality and loves to be around people. She loves to jump in your lap and snuggle. When she's not napping in a basket, she's known to follow you around the house or to initiate play time with her friend Coco.

Coco and Maize will do great in a home with or without older kids and both do fine with the dog in their foster home. These girls came into our care separately from a local shelter.

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.
