On Saturday, December 14, 2019, Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) will host its annual “Home for the Holidays” free pet adoption event from 11:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter, 39820 Charles Town Pike, Waterford. Adoption fees will be waived for all available pets, which include cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, small pets and reptiles.
In an effort to help as many pets as possible, LCAS is bringing in dogs from overcrowded and under-resourced partner shelters throughout the region before the event. Loudoun residents have stepped forward to foster these incoming transfer dogs for a week – allowing LCAS to open up kennel space to bring in additional pets. “We are so grateful to the citizens of Loudoun who are willing to open their hearts to these homeless dogs to give them hope at finding a family,” says Behavior Specialist and Transfer Coordinator Jennie Clutterbuck.
The event will be full of holiday cheer with a hot cocoa and s’mores station hosted by the Friends of Loudoun County Animals, goodie bags for adopters and more. Santa himself will even stop by for a visit with goodies for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Prospective adopters can view available pets online at loudoun.gov/animals. The standard adoption screening process still applies during this promotion and most adoptions can be completed on the same day.
All dogs, cats and rabbits adopted from LCAS are spayed or neutered and receive a microchip which is registered to their adopter. Dogs and cats also receive age-appropriate vaccinations. The shelter frequently has many pets available for adoption including hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, rabbits, other small pets and livestock.
