Items to Consider

While visiting with shelter pets at a mobile adoption event, here are a few items to consider during the adoption process:

  • Adopters must be 18 years or older with photo ID.
  • All adoption policies and procedures apply to mobile adoptions, just like any adoption conducted at the shelter.
  • We encourage all adults in the adopting family to visit their new pet prior to adoption.
  • For adopters currently renting, be sure to check any policy with regards to pet ownership to avoid landlord concerns.
  • Declawed cats are adopted with the intention of being indoor-only cats.
  • In most cases you can take your new pet home on the same day! LCAS reserves the right to temporarily hold an adoption pending further approval or possible home check.
  • If you have any questions, please call 703-777-0406.

*****

The vehicle, purchased through generous donations to the Animal Services Trust Fund, has been in operation since 2009. It is 33 feet long and provides comfortable, climate controlled space for approximately 20 animals. The bus includes a visiting room and roll up doors so that animals can be seen from the outside. It can be used for emergency response situations such as large scale animal seizures, rescues or veterinary medical triage.
