Lilly has a partner (Bucky) who she loves and so will you. Lilly is a Dachshund mix, though you may find that funny once you see her size and weight. She is tan and white with a touch of black and smooth coated. She is the older of the pair at 8 years and weighs approx. 40 pounds. She is such a happy girl and so eager to please you. She comes when called, is housebroken, loves kids and is good with other dogs. She is bonded with Bucky and we'd love for them to go together. They are sad right now and need each other and miss their owner who had to retire to a nursing facility. Together they will bring you love and joy and will always be grateful you rescued them.

To see Lilly and Bucky by APPOINTMENT ONLY, submit an online dog adoption application at http://hsfc.org/adoptions/applications/online/. An adoption counselor will contact you--typically within three business days--to discuss with you the type of dog you are looking for and to see whether we have a good match for you. Our counselor will discuss the next steps afterward.

Our dogs and horses are NOT at the HSFC shelter at 4057 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA--only our cats, birds, rabbits, and small mammals can be visited there. Our dogs and horses are housed at our private farm in Centreville.

About The Humane Society of Fairfax County

About Our Shelter...

Established in 1968, the Humane Society of Fairfax County (HSFC) was formed by concerned citizens as a non-profit organization to rescue and protect both domestic and wild animals from abuse, neglect, abandonment, and cruelty. As a young organization with a handful of volunteers, money was tight and animals in need were plentiful. The dedicated group of volunteers held bake sales, yard sales, and distributed donation cans throughout the county in an effort to pay for the ever increasing expenses needed to provide for the animals in our care.

Over the years, things have changed tremendously. The handful of volunteers has grown hundreds of dedicated individuals who give their time to help whenever and wherever needed. The bake sales and yard sales eventually gave way to a thrift shop called Second Chance and located at 4057 Chain Bridge Rd., Fairfax, VA 22030.

In December 1994, a very generous and caring individual donated two office buildings in the City of Fairfax to the HSFC. The larger building houses our administrative offices enabling us to help the public with their animal concerns in a more timely and efficient manner. Additionally, the building serves as our cat adoption center. Here the animals are not kept in cages, but have their own deluxe rooms which allow them a real chance to show off for prospective adopters.

It had always been our greatest desire to have our own shelter one day, and because of the generosity of many special people, our dream has come true. The HSFC purchased 13 acres in Centreville, VA in July 2002 and has a barn that houses the horses and a state-of-the-art kennel that houses the dogs.

While many of our goals have been reached there is still so much to do and so many animals that need our help. Please take a moment to browse through our site and see if there is some way you can lend a hand to help us in our ongoing mission to care for homeless and abused animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

There are several ways you can meet some of the animals that we have for adoption.

Cats, rabbits and small mammals can be viewed at 4057 Chain Bridge Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030. Please call (703) 385-PETS for an appointment.

Dogs and horses reside at our farm in Centreville, Virginia and are shown by appointment only.

The HSFC invests a tremendous amount of emotional support in each of our animals and we are dedicated to finding them the best possible homes for their particular needs. When you adopt an animal from us, you must sign a legal contract stating that you will comply with full knowledge ALL of our policies.

Our Adoption Process...

An online adoption application is available on the HSFC website and should be completed and submitted. Veterinary checks are done as part of the approval process. A staff member will be in touch with the potential adopter within a few days of receiving the application. A contract is put into place once the decision is made to adopt and a match is found. All HSFC dogs, cats, and rabbits are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The adoption fees for the animals in our care are minimal, especially compared to the unconditional love and companionship adoptees will receive in return. Fees for our animals are posted on our website under the adoption section.
