On Saturday, May 13, 2023, Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) will host a “Homeward Bound” free pet adoption event from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Animal Shelter, 42225 Adoption Drive in Leesburg. Adoption fees will be waived for all available cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, small pets and reptiles.
“The average amount of time it takes an animal to get adopted is continuing to increase,” says Animal Shelter Operations Manager Melissa Heard. “For example, Sheila the dog has been waiting for over 100 days, while Dolly and Miley the cats have been waiting for over 180 days for a family to come adopt them. We know their future families are out there and we’re hopeful that this event may help find them the loving homes that they have been waiting months for.”
All dogs and cats adopted from LCAS are spayed or neutered, have age-appropriate vaccinations and receive a microchip which is registered to their adopter. Adopters will also receive goodie bags with supplies to help their new pet settle into their home.
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 still applies during this promotion and most adoptions can be completed on the same day.
