This special #ShelterSaturday, adoption fees are waived for all animals! That includes Franny, this sweet 7-year-old with the cutest ears we’ve ever seen. 🐶

Franny was found as a stray and brought to us from one of our rescue partners. You would never guess that she used to be a stray, though! Gentle and smart - Franny knows sit, shake, and lay down, and she easily gives up toys when playing. She’s also quite curious and eager to explore everything around her! Basically, Franny is the perfect dog for a family in need of a calm, kind new companion who will join them on adventures!

Think Franny might be the right fit for your home? Stop by the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (4500 West Ox Rd)! For the entire day (but today only), you can adopt her, or any other pet, with NO FEES! What reason is there NOT to stop by and pay her a visit?! 😍
