A 9836 Fairfax Blvd., Fairfax, VA 22030 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats, rabbits, small animals, birds.
1 - 1 of 1 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We take in strays found in the City of Fairfax, Virginia and owner releases from residents of the City of Fairfax, Virginia.
We adopt animals out to citizens in the Northern Virginia Area.
We are the City of Fairfax's Animal Control Division. We are a small jurisdiction of less than 25,000 residents. Our Animal Control Officers work out of the City of Fairfax Police Department. We are contracted with an animal hospital to act as our shelter and holding facility. However, our animal control staff handles animal adoptions.
Having our shelter animals housed at an animal hospital allows them to be regularly monitored and examined by the veterinarians on staff.
Unfortunately, with our being such a small jurisdiction many citizens do not realize that we are separate from the larger surrounding jurisdiction of Fairfax County. With today's economy and the increase in pets being turned over by their owners we are finding it more and more necessary to reach out through media sites in order to educate the public and make them aware that we do in fact have a separate shelter.
We are contracted with Town and Country Animal Hospital to act as our animal shelter/holding facility.
Town and Country is located at 9836 Fairfax Blvd., Fairfax, VA 22030. Their phone number is 703-273-2110.
Citizens are welcome to stop by Town and Country any time during their regular office hours to meet the wonderful animals that the City of Fairfax has up for adoption. However, it is best to contact our animal control staff at 703-385-7919 and make an appointment to meet our adoptable animals in order to avoid a possible wait should the hospital staff be tied up with clients and patients.
Town and Country's hours are: 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM Monday through Friday. 7:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Saturdays.
Sundays they are closed.
Donations are made out to Town and Country Animal Hospital and credited towards the City of Fairfax's Spay Neuter Account.
