This is a courtesy post for one of our rescue partners, Fayette County Animal Control Center, in WVa. Meet sweet lovable Alvin! 

"Alvin came to the shelter as a stray back in January of 2015! That's right 2015!! That means he's been at the shelter for more than a year and a half!!! We're guessing he is about 3 yeas old, so that's roughly half of his life spent in the shelter! 

Alvin is a staff favorite and it breaks everyone's heart who truly knows this special guy, that  he has had to spend all of this time at the shelter. Sadly, he has been consistently overlooked and used to seem very hyper and anxious when greeted at his cage. However, since getting regular walks and love from some dedicated volunteers, this behavior has improved a lot! This speaks volumes as to what a little time and attention has done for this boy!! He tends to be shy and nervous when first meeting people, so anyone first encountering him needs to have this in mind, but he quickly warms up and will become your best buddy once the ice has been broken. 

To the best of our knowledge, he is a hound, lab, and possibly pit mix. He walks really well on a leash and he LOVES to explore and sniff things! He is roughly 55lbs, but has a medium build, and he has already been neutered! He rarely takes an interest in the resident office cats, and over the past several months he has been doing so much better with other dogs and has shown that he really just wants to play! Again, this is proof that this loving guy needs a family to give him the love, time and attention he so desperately longs for and deserves."

Please help us find Alvin his special loving and forever home.   Contact the shelter at 304-574-3682 or message them on Facebook for more information. 

About Washington Area Animal Adoption Group

About Our Rescue Group...

Washington Area Animal Adoption Group (WAAAG) is a Veteran Operated Non-profit organization with the sole purpose to save animals and prevent cruelty to animals.

WAAAG is an all-volunteer animal rescue nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Delaplane, VA. We are dedicated to improving the lives of our furry friends. The WAAAG concept of offering a healing "timeout" for often abused, neglected and abandoned shelter animals is unique and well thought out.

WAAAG is dedicated to improving the lives of our furry friends. We take in dogs & cats from overcrowded shelters. In addition to vet care, our animals receive lots of unconditional love, rest & relaxation to help them recover from what they have been through.

WAAAG dogs stay in climate controlled cabins where have their own rooms & access to their own covered porch, kennel run & play yard. Peace & Tranquility help the dogs heal emotionally & prepare for their forever home.

WAAAG is on 50 acres, just outside of Delaplane in the beautiful Northern VA countryside. WAAAG animals enjoy peaceful walks through grassy fields & along meandering creeks next to large trees.

WAAAG is worth your consideration and your support!

Our Adoption Process...

If you see a dog you are interested in meeting, please contact us.

We have adoption application forms on our website at Please complete a form and email to us.

We will have you come and meet the animal you are interested. If it is a good fit, then we will conduct a home visit, just to make sure the animal will go to a good home.

If the home visit goes well, the adoption will be finalized with the Adoption Agreement form. We ask for a $300 donation for a dog and $100 for a cat.
