Who We Are

The Humane Society of Fairfax County, Inc. is a non-profit organization established in 1968 to rescue and protect animals, both domestic and wild, from cruel treatment, neglect or lack of care.

Adopting a Friend

The Humane Society of Fairfax County has cats, birds, rabbits, and small mammals available for adoption at the administrative offices at 4057 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax, VA. The adoption hours are from 10 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 3 pm Saturday. We offer extended hours on Wednesday until 7 pm by appointment for viewings and adoptions. Come by and visit us!

Dogs and horses are also available for adoption and reside at a farm in Centreville, VA, separate from our administrative offices in Fairfax.

For more information or to see our dogs and horses, submit an online adoption application at Staff typically will contact you within two business days to schedule a phone interview to discuss your application. Afterward, an appointment may be scheduled at your convenience to visit the farm.

Our organization depends on dedicated volunteers to help with our many programs.

Working with animals is a very rewarding experience. Whether you have many hours to give or are available only on special occasions, we have an activity you can participate in. Some of our activities require several hours weekly and some a few hours a month. If your schedule is extremely heavy, we even have ways you can help us once or twice a year (for example, fundraising events). You can work with the animals or on their behalf.
