Every week, I’ll be featuring adoptable pets from local rescue groups. This week, I’m sharing adorable adoptables from the Humane Society of Fairfax County (HSFC) and A Forever Home Rescue Foundation (A Forever Home). Ready to meet this week’s featured pups, Belinda & Mac? Here we go…
First up, meet Belinda! This Beagle/Plott Hound mix weighs approximately 35 pounds and is looking for a new friend. Here’s her bio from HSFC:
“This is one beautiful girl you won’t want to miss meeting. Belinda is incredibly sweet and loving. She was picked up by Animal Control as a stray with injuries. It was suspected she had been hit by a car. As soon as they realized how wonderful she was, they called us right away to help save her from euthanasia. And they were so right! She is not only adorable but too sweet to describe. She has gone through a very successful surgery to repair a dislocated hip, but healing beautifully. You’ll just have to come and meet her for yourself to see exactly what we’re talking about. She’s 3 yrs. old, likes other dogs and all ages of people. She is so ready to find a new family who will give her the love she deserves.
Up next, meet Mac, a handsome Beagle/Labrador Retriever mix. Here’s his bio from A Forever Home:
“Hi, I’m Mac short for Paul McCartney. I am a gentle, slender small version of a lab but I am actually a 3-year-old lab/beagle mix. I got all the lab coloring and none of the beagle. I am very gentle and sensitive. I quietly love being with my foster family after being with my old family. For some time, their schedule was sooooo bad that I was in a crate with my brother Lenny as they said for about 20 hours a day! I am one of those dogs that curl up in a little ball and just love to lean against my foster. I also like being out of my crate unless it is bedtime or they go out, which isn’t often that they both go out. I love people and enjoy pets. I can get scared a little but them all I want is a pet to know it’s ok. My foster thinks it is very funny that after two days with her, all she has to do is whistle and I come right to her! I can do my commands of sit, down and shake. I am very gentle and have a very light touch. I am looking for a new home where I can be out of my crate most of the day. Please come and meet me at the adoptions. I really love the pets from big people and the kids!“
A Forever Home also has a weekly adoption event at the PetCo in Chantilly. For the address and to find out more info, click here.
(If you have your eye on a specific pet, please email for information
first – not all pets will be at the weekly event. However, there are a
lot of awesome pets in need of homes, so if you’re in the neighborhood,
stop by and meet some of them!)
