Kick off Your Holiday Season at the
Animal Shelter on “Black Fur-Day”

Need a break from the hustle and bustle of shopping on Black Friday? Stop by the Fairfax County Animal Shelter for Black Fur-Day. On Friday, November 29, the shelter is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and fees will be waived on adoptions of all black and mostly-black dogs and cats. Unfortunately, black and darker-colored animals take longer to be adopted so the shelter is offering a special promotion to bring them extra attention.

With over 25 dogs and puppies, 40 cats and kittens, and dozens of small pets like turtles, birds, snakes, and guinea pigs, the shelter is the perfect place to visit and make a new friend. The shelter’s friendly staff will help you through the adoption application and process to make sure it’s a good fit for both pet and owner.

The holiday season is also a time when the shelter celebrates their annual Home for the Holidays campaign. All adopters will receive a gift bag full of pet-friendly goodies and half-off adoption fees for all adult pets from November 15 through December 31.

Learn more about Shelter events and promotions and carve time in your busy holiday schedule to visit the facility at 4500 West Ox Road, Fairfax, VA 22030.
