The "Featured Pets" listing is updated on a weekly basis so please check back regularly for new additions and adoption success stories! This listing represents only a small group of our animals housed at the Prince William County Animal Shelter. Please visit the shelter in person to be sure you meet every one of the animals available for adoptable. The Prince William County Animal Shelter tracks our animals by reference numbers (example: SAR #123). Please provide this reference number (note: listed as the I.D. on Petfinder) when inquiring about a particular animal. Are you considering adopting a cat or kitten? Depending on your age and lifestyle, you may be better off adopting an adult cat rather than a kitten. If you are elderly, work long hours, or have young children, an adult cat may be the best match for your home. If you plan to leave a kitten home alone while you're working, the kitten may become lonely and destructive. An adult cat is usually much calmer and less likely to get into trouble than a kitten. If you lead a very busy lifestyle, consider adopting two cats to keep each other company. Young children move quickly and like to hug pets. As a result, children may accidentally hurt a small kitten or cause a kitten to bite or scratch if it's scared. An adult cat, on the other hand, is more likely to tolerate children and less likely to be injured. Senior citizens are often unprepared for a kitten's energy level and most experts recommend a calm adult or older cat for an elderly household.

Did you know that over 1,000 people per hour run a search right here looking to adopt a pet? Pet adoption is quickly becoming the preferred way to find a new dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Best of all, there are so many benefits when you adopt a dog or adopt a cat over buying. For instance, pet adoption will almost always be more affordable than buying a puppy for sale from a breeder or finding a kitten for sale from a litter. There are more benefits as well. Since pets in rescues and shelters usually come from a home where the owners ran out of money, got divorced, or had to move, it's common to find that the dogs and cats on our website are already housetrained, good with kids, or do well with other pets. People are finding out that buying a puppy for sale from a breeder isn't all it's cracked up to be and the stress of training a puppy is too much these days. Best of all, rescues care for their animals, and the dogs and cats don't leave the organization without having their shots and being taken to the vet. That means less stress, and more savings! So what are you waiting for? Go find that perfect pet! Cats: Adoption, Bringing A Cat Home and Care - Petfinder

Sadly, a cat's chances for adoption decrease with age and the majority of adult cats at shelters are euthanized because most people want to adopt kittens. An adult cat makes a wonderful pet if someone would give them a chance! Check out the purr-fect adult cats available for adoption at the Prince William County Animal Shelter!Thank you for choosing to adopt a pet! Every year, thousands of dogs and cats in New Mexico need loving new homes. Your decision to adopt a homeless pet will save the life of your new companion, as well as the life of the pet we are able to care for next.The Prince William County Animal Shelter works very hard to find homes for the animals under its care as quickly as possible. Animals are brought into the shelter at an alarming rate and a sudden influx of animals may fill the shelter beyond capacity. All stray animals taken into the Prince William County Animal Shelter have a minimum 5-day period of grace, after which Virginia State law dictates the animal may be euthanized as a means of disposition (those with collars or some sort of identification receive a 10 day waiting period). Surrendered animals (those animals signed over to the shelter by an owner) are evaluated immediately for adoption. If the animal does not pass the behavioral evaluation or has major health issues it could be euthanized. Sadly, not all animals brought to the shelter find homes. Please adopt from the shelter -- it saves lives! The Prince William SPCA is assisting the Prince William County Animal Shelter to place adoptable shelter animals on Petfinder. The PWSPCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation established to benefit the animals of the greater Prince William County, Virginia, area. This all-volunteer organization is dedicated to protecting domestic animals from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment, and stopping the unnecessary overpopulation of companion animals. PWSPCA's goal is to end the euthanasia of adoptable cats and dogs in Prince William County by promoting and supporting programs involving mutually beneficial relations between people and companion animals. In working with the Prince William County Animal Shelter to place adoptable shelter animals on Petfinder, the PWSPCA hopes to make the greater Prince William region a better place for precious companion animals.
