Animal Shelter Vision:

We strive toward the day when no healthy, treatable or rehabilitatable companion animal is euthanized.

The Fairfax County Animal Services Division is made up of three entities: the animal shelter, animal control and the wildlife biologist. Shelter staff works with animal control officers to care for lost, abandoned, abused or unwanted Fairfax County animals.

Each year, the animal shelter takes in more than 5,500 companion animals and has an additional 2,000 or more wildlife pass through its doors.  You can access detailed statistics by visiting the Office of the State Veterinarian web site
