Adoption Center

Adoption Center

Adoption CenterIn November 2013, we opened our first facility to house homeless dogs – the Homeward Trails Adoption Center located in Fairfax Station, VA.

The Adoption Center has allowed us to quadruple the number of dogs we rescue by housing up to 45 dogs at any given time. The Center also provides a safe and enriching environment for dogs awaiting their foster and forever homes. During the day, the dogs play together in three indoor playrooms and three outdoor play yards under the supervision of staff and volunteers. At night, the pups are tucked in to their crates to rest after a long day of socialization with other dogs and human friends.

The Adoption Center has a full time, on-site manager and several part time employees but we rely heavily on our wonderful volunteers to help care for and socialize the dogs and puppies and help maintain a safe and clean environment for the animals to thrive in.  Volunteers are needed 7 days a week and the hours vary from 6:30 AM – 8:30 PM.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Adoption Center is currently open by appointment only. Come see us and meet some wonderful adoptable dogs!  For more information on the dogs available for adoption at the Center or to schedule an appointment, please contact
