Humane Society of Fairfax County "A Toast to the Animals" Wine Tasting & Silent Auction
Founded in 1965, The Humane Society of Fairfax County (HSFC) has been making a difference in the lives of cats, dogs, horses and other animals for more than 45 years. HSFC is a no kill animal welfare group that takes in and finds homes for stray, abused and unwanted dogs, cats, horses, rabbies and animals that need care and seeks to direct resources where they are needed most and to alleviate or prevent animals from any suffering. HSFC takes in dogs, cats and other animals from local shelters when space is available and also provides veterinary care with local vets, rehabilitation and professional dog training to animals in their care. HSFC also partners with local spay/neuter programs to provide access to affordable spay/neuter services.
