Pender Veterinary Centre is honored to partner with the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (FCAS) to promote pet adoption in Fairfax County. Pender provides on-site veterinary care to animals brought to the shelter. In addition, Pender is creating the Pender Pals Membership program providing discount services for pet owners adopting through Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
We reward your choice to adopt a pet from FCAS in two big ways:
Your pet’s first post-adoption exam at Pender is free!
Pets adopted from Fairfax County Animal Shelter receive a 7% discount for life on all Pender products and services.
As an added bonus, your newly adopted pet may have already been seen at FCAS by a Pender veterinarian so we are familiar with your pet and have all medical notes on file.
Partnering with Pender is a win-win for you and your pet; you ensure you have a healthy, happy new pet and you save on veterinary care.
