About Our Rescue Group...
The Animal Welfare League is an all volunteer, non-profit charitable organization. (est. 1965) We have no paid staff. Our main thrust is spaying & neutering through low cost and free sterilization programs. We spayed/neutered over 1,400 animals in 2016, and thousands our prior 52 years. We seek quality homes for unwanted dogs and cats, provide Vet care for stray or injured animals, promote respect & compassion for all creatures through humane education. Our mission is to prevent cruelty to animals and relieve their suffering. We provide animal food to families that need help so they and their pets do not suffer.
We are very active with breed rescue groups in other states and have successfully placed many "discarded" pets in their care and subsequently into their forever loving homes.
To do all this we need financial help. We also have an office/Thrift Shop at 75 South Main Street, Kilmarnock, VA We always need donations for re-sale. Food donations for the animals can be dropped at this location.
Our work is confined to the 4 counties of Lancaster, Westmoreland, Richmond and Northumberland.
We rely totally on public donations, membership, fundraisers, grants and welcome any contributions.
