Fairfax Pets On Wheels, Inc. (FPOW) connects pets with people living in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities in Fairfax County.

All-volunteer FPOW is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization and is approved by the American Kennel Club as an AKC-recognized therapy dog group. Every year, our people/pet teams share the power of the human-animal bond through thousands of hours of pet therapy visits.

Do you have a lovable dog, cat, or bunny that would enjoy putting a smile on someone’s face? Become a FPOW volunteer. You’ll touch someone’s life AND change your own!
