Come to our Holiday Open House; December 22, noon-5 p.m.

Or answering questions about reptiles, rabbits, or many other animals in the Fairfax County Animal Shelter? Consider volunteering at the shelter and join us for an open house at the Shelter; Saturday, December 22, from noon until 5 p.m. Meet new director Tawny Hammond; tour the newly constructed spacious animal adoption wing, enjoy holiday refreshments and learn about the many opportunities to volunteer.
