  • Provide a virtual adoption process to help homeless animals find families. Learn more about virtual adoptions HERE.
  • Be available by appointment for found animals and animal surrenders.
  • Supply families in need with pet food and supplies. Contact community@alexandriaanimals.org for supplies from our Pet Pantry.

  • Assist with concerns about domestic or wild animals. Call 703-746-4444 to reach Alexandria’s Animal Services.
While  currently open by appointment only, they are working to prepare the shelter to allow members of the public to safely visit in the near future, so look for more to come about in-person visiting.
