‘Operation Empty Cage’ Begins
County Proclamation Kicks off Annual
Holiday Animal Adoption Event
“Operation Empty Cage” will launch on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter as part of the organization’s special two-month long Home 4 the Holidays adoption . One of the campaign’s goals is to empty the shelter’s cages by finding a home for each animal available for adoption throughout the holiday season.
As part of the special Home 4 the Holidays adoption event, the shelter will offer free spay/neuter for the first 100 dogs and cats adopted from the shelter until Dec. 31, 2011.
Home 4 the Holidays is being hosted two weeks earlier than in years past as a launch to National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, Nov. 6 – 12, 2011. A Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ proclamation recognizes the initiative and the shelter which has provided programs and services for citizens that have positively impacted the lives of more than 20,400 animals in five years.
“Each year, homeless animals in Fairfax County spend the holidays in an animal shelter cage versus in a loving home,” says Dr. Karen P. Diviney, Fairfax County Animal Shelter director. “Operation Empty Cage aims to change that by giving these animals the gift of a new family and by enriching families through the unconditional love that a pet can provide.”
To view animals available for adoption at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, visit the shelter during its business hours Tuesdays through Fridays 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Animal adoptions occur up to one half hour prior to the shelter’s close each day.

From a Fairfax county police new release.
The Fairfax County Animal Shelter has reopened for cat adoptions. To celebrate the reopening of the cat adoption room, the shelter is hosting ExtravaCATza! 2011 and will also be extending the summer adoption event throughout August. As part of the event, the first 100 cats adopted from the shelter during July and August will receive a free spay or neuter at the shelter’s veterinarian. There will also be no adoption fee for cats who are seven years or older.
Families interested in adopting a cat or kitten are encouraged to drop by the shelter throughout July and August to meet the wonderful animals that are available and looking for loving new homes.
The facility is reopening for cat adoptions after closing temporarily in June after an outbreak of suspected virulent systemic Calicivirus. After the outbreak, the shelter enacted a very strict cleaning regimen to eliminate the virus from all cat housing areas. No signs of the feline illness have been present in the shelter among its cats since the June outbreak.
The shelter will be open its normal adoption hours for cats, dogs and other animals throughout the month: Tuesdays – Fridays, 12 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
