On Saturday, May 7, 2022, Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) will host a “Homeward Bound” free pet adoption event from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Adoption fees will be waived on 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., Leesburg. (Please note: Kincaid Boulevard is closed from the direction of Battlefield Parkway. You must use Crosstrail Boulevard to access the facility.)
“Nationwide, shelters are seeing increased intakes of animals, and longer lengths of stay. While we have been fortunate to maintain a high adoption rate here at Loudoun, these events are crucial in helping our local pets find loving forever homes, while also supporting our partner shelters in rural communities,” says Loudoun County Animal Services Director Nina Stively.
In an effort to help as many pets as possible to be adopted, LCAS will be receiving up to twenty dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters in the region and they will all be up for adoption in addition to the animals already being cared for in the Loudoun County Animal Shelter.
All dogs and cats adopted from LCAS are spayed or neutered, have age-appropriate vaccinations and receive a microchip registered to their adopter. The shelter frequently has many pets available for adoption, including hamsters, guinea pigs, reptiles, rabbits, other small pets and livestock. Potential adopters can view available pets online at loudoun.gov/animals. The standard adoption screening process will apply during the Homeward Bound event and most adoptions can be completed on the same day.
