About Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter

Each year, more than 5,000 pets make their way to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. Some are strays, and other surrendered by their owners or confiscated by the county due to neglect or mistreatment.
With so many animals coming through its 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 funding to the Shelter in 2018 in the amount of $275,671 which represented 25% of their budget. It included life-saving and life-improving medical care for 64 shelter pets; dental care for 70 pets; parasite prevention for all dogs, cats and rabbits - over 3,352 pets. Collars, tags and leashes for adopted dogs and cats, comprehensive medical tests for 48 senior pets and more!

Let's help all our shelter pets find the loving home they deserve.
