My son and I had been wanting to have a dog in our home for quite a while. We recently moved into our new home when we both knew that we needed a dog in our lives. We went down to the SPCA to see if any of the dogs would be willing to adopt us. Annie stood out right away to me - she made direct eye contact, was calm, and she seemed to have a sweet disposition. Right before we left that day - I went back to her and she did something that took my heart - as I kneeled down to look at her one last time, she also sat down and began to "wave her paw at me".... needless to say the rest is history.
We have greatly enjoyed Annie and she has been such a great addition to our lives. She is a smart and a lovable friend who has given us much enjoyment. She was the best decision we have made and we know that we will enjoy her more each day.
Meet Our Photographer
Susan Carter donates her time, skills and equipment every week at our shelter and takes the absolute best animal photographs we have ever seen!
Judging by all the positive comments we have received regarding the photographs of our resident animals on our website, we think all our supporters are as appreciative of our new professional photographer as we are!
Please take a look at some fine examples of Susan's work at:
My family adopted Freddy from the Fauquier SPCA last month. Your place came very highly recommended and as soon as we walked in, we knew why. Your staff was so attentive and helped us with our decision. My daughter, who is 6 years old, is mildly obsessed with dogs. :) We discussed getting a dog as a family and then came to visit you. We loved Freddy as soon as we saw him. My husband and I put him on 'hold' for 24 hrs while we made our final decision. Your staff knew so much about Freddy and answered all our questions.
Well, a month later, Freddy is a real part of our family. He is the best dog anyone could ask for. He's well behaved and we can even leave him out of a crate while we go out for a few hours. He's a loyal guy and will follow either my husband or I everywhere we go. My daughter is in love and in fact 'got married' to Freddy last week!
Here is a picture of all of us visiting Santa a few days ago. I think Freddy got what he really wanted for Christmas--a forever family.
Thank you again for giving us a new best friend to love!
