About Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter
In 2021, 3,182 pets made their way to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. Some were strays, and other surrendered by their owners or confiscated by the county due to neglect or mistreatment.
With so many animals coming through the Shelter's doors and a limited budget, the Shelter has to make tough decisions about how it can provide for each animal. In some cases, this means that otherwise adoptable animals might not have a second chance if expensive medical treatments or special needs costs exceed the county budget.
This is where the Friends steps in. We raise awareness — and money — to help improve the quality of life for all of loving local shelter pets and give them a chance to find their forever home.
Friends provided $154,159 in funding to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter in 2021, which represented 18% of their budget. This included life-saving and life-improving medical care for 26 shelter pets; dental care for 27 pets; parasite prevention for all dogs, cats and rabbits - 2,399 pets, and TNR spay/neuter surgeries for 649 community cats. Friends also provided every adopted dog a collar, tag and leash, and every adopted cat a tag and collar.
Let's help all our shelter pets find the loving home they deserve.
