Sara Bergene BayramThis makes me so sad. I hope they are adopted soon. They were probably hoping on Saturday that one of those many humans was for them. 😢

BACK TO SCHOOL IN STYLE: We had so much fun today at the Gum Springs Community Center, where along with Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, Fairfax County Sheriff, Communities of Trust and many others, we were able to provide fresh haircuts, backpacks and school supplies. The kids got their faces painted, hung out with our favorite crime-fighting dog McGruff, and danced to music. When you look good, you feel good!

Meet Big Boy! He was overwhelmed and scared when he first got here, but wow has his awesome personality finally emerged! Here's what one of his fav volunteers has to say about him: "What a sweetie pie. I’m in love. He was wiggly and bouncy when I got to his kennel but he was easy to leash up, and though strong on leash, nothing unmanageable. We spent most of our time in one of the pens where he mostly followed me around but if I play bowed at him or started jogging he would do these silly bunny hop zoomies. It was so cute! When I sat in the chair he came over and enjoyed all over body rubs. He also knows “sit” and seems quite food motivated. His chubby little tail was going a mile a minute! We wrapped up our time together with a walk around the yard and took a shot at the agility equipment. With the help of a little bit of hot dog as a lure he nailed the A-frame on the first try and had no hesitation placing on the little table. The hurdle was a little trickier but he was good once I set the bar at the second lowest setting. Seems like a happy, confident pup. I adore him!"

Big Boy's teeth looked not great when he arrived, so thanks to the Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter we were able to get a dental cleaning for him! He's only three years old and turns out that underneath the grime, his chompers are nice and shiny! With his newly fresh breath and his happy-go-lucky attitude, Big Boy is now ready to find his forever family! Come visit him!

Did you hear the amazing results of our #CleartheShelters event? Just under 60 pets were adopted during this one-day event, and we couldn't be happier! Here are some photos of our newly-adopted happy pets just before they headed home with their new families. Thank you again to everyone who shared posts and told friends/family, and to everyone who adopted! <3
