Animal Shelter Receives “Compassion Award”


The Virginia Federation of Humane Societies selected the state’s top animal shelters and programs that made a difference in animal welfare in 2013 at a conference in Roanoke last week.

The Fairfax County Animal Shelter received the “Compassion Award” for their demonstration of strong leadership and making significant progress towards reducing euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in the community. 

Fairfax County was the largest jurisdiction in the United States with an animal placement rate above 90 percent in 2013.
