On Saturday, December 17, 2022, Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) will host its annual fee-waived pet adoption event, Home for the Holidays, 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter, 42225 Adoption Drive in Leesburg. Adoption fees will be waived for all available pets, which include cats, kittens, dogs, small pets and livestock. 

“No one wants to be alone for the holidays, and animals are no exception,” said Operations Manager Melissa Heard. “Our staff would love to be able to shut the lights off on Christmas Eve, knowing that all of our adoptable pets were tucked into new homes with loving families.” 

In an effort to help as many pets as possible, LCAS is transferring in dogs and cats from overcrowded and under-resourced partner shelters throughout the region before the event.

“Animal intake numbers at many of our partner shelters are higher than they have been in three years,” said Community Relations Manager Talia Czapski.” They are treading water to save lives and we want to help them. This holiday adoption event gives us the chance to offer hope and homes to animals in need.”

The event will be full of holiday cheer with goodie bags for adopters and more. Santa himself will even stop by for a visit! Prospective adopters can view available pets online. The standard adoption screening process still applies during this promotion; 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.
