Adoption Promotion to Help Animals Find Homes for the Holidays

The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is offering a free spay or neuter for the first 100 cats, kittens, dogs, or puppies adopted from the shelter through the end of the year. The offer is part of the shelter’s annual Home for the Holidays adoption celebration to help homeless animals make their way out of the shelter and into stable homes in time for the holidays.

The shelter has cats and dogs available for adoption, in addition to a host of rabbits, small mammals, reptiles, and birds. To view animals available for adoption, visit and click on adoption.
