Who are we?
PETS Ltd. is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal welfare organization.
PETS Ltd. was established in June 2004 for the purpose of spaying and neutering companion animals in an effort to reduce pet overpopulation.
PETS Ltd. provides low-cost (and in hardship cases free) spay/neuter surgeries for qualified rescue groups and individuals they sponsor. We deal primarily with cats as our facility is small and there are far more stray cats and feral cats than dogs, although dogs from shelters and rescues can be accommodated.
Since its beginning, PETS Ltd. has performed more than 15,000 surgeries, preventing the birth of over 80,000 unwanted animals.
Where are we?
The Pets Ltd. mobile clinic is now at 13320 Occoquan Rd. in Woodbridge VA.
This is about 15 minutes from our previous location on Clifton Rd., Fairfax Station, VA. We are next to the Montcastle Funeral Home which is on the corner of Occoquan Rd. and Horner Rd. There is a Pets Ltd sign in front of the house and our mobile veterinary RV is in the driveway.
Why do we do this?
The leading cause of death for cats and dogs is pet overpopulation.
There are not enough homes available for the many companion animals taken to the shelters daily. Sometimes these animals are humanely euthanized, and sometimes not, depending on the animal shelter. It is irresponsible to let a pet breed when there are no homes for the offspring. It is unfair to these pets, unfair to the shelter workers who must say "Be a good boy and give me your paw as I must kill you" and to the animal rescue groups who are on constant overload trying to find as many good homes as they can, and who must constantly raise funds for veterinary care and maintenance of these animals.

Unprecedented Deer Sterilization Project
In 2013 we learned of a successful deer sterilization project performed in Maryland. At that time, in Fairfax City, VA, bow hunting to thin the deer was being debated. However, we prevailed upon the Fairfax City Council to allow a sterilization project similar to that in Maryland. The Council approved it, and we successfully sterilized 18 doe in February 2014 and another 18 in January 2015. We successfully completed the deer sterilization project in 2018.
