Animal Services hosts a free adoption on May 7

On Saturday, May 7, 2022, Loudoun County Animal Services will host a free “Homeward Bound” pet adoption event from noon to 6 p.m.

Adoption fees will be waived for all available cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, small pets and reptiles during the event, which will take place at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter, 42225 Adoption Dr. in Leesburg.

“Nationally, shelters are seeing an increase in animal numbers and longer lengths of stay. While we have been fortunate to maintain a high adoption rate here in Loudoun, these events are crucial in helping our local pets find loving forever homes, while supporting our partner shelters in rural communities,” said Nina Stively, director of animal services for Loudoun County.

In an effort to help as many pets as possible, Loudoun Animal Services will take in up to twenty dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters in the area, all of whom will be up for adoption in addition to animals already at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter. .

All dogs and cats adopted by Loudoun County Animal Services are spayed or spayed, receive age-appropriate vaccinations, and are microchipped registered in their adopter’s name. Potential adopters can view available animals online at loudoun.gov/animals. The standard adoption screening process will apply during the Homeward Bound event and most adoptions can be done the same day.
