  • In 2016, we spayed or neutered over 1,400 animals and we paid veterinarian expenses of over $207,000.
  • We placed over 300 animals into rescue groups or permanent homes in 2016. 
  • We assisted with rescue and financial to Texas Hurricane animals. 
  • Started a feline rescue and maintaining approx. 15 unowned cat colonies.
  • We fielded thousands of phone calls for help for animals.
  • We provide  the community folks with pet food when they can not afford it and it is on-going.
  • We look forward to an increase in our spay/neuter figures.  We will have to have more fundraisers in order to do this.
  • More members to help achieve our on going goal of caring for animals in the Northern Neck that owners do not or cannot.
  • Relieve the suffering of animals that did not ask to be born.
  • Find Foster Homes for the animals giving AWL time to find permanent loving homes for them.
  • Hoping to get some county support.  We have no county support or government support.
  • We are working with a new group to help them build a stand-alone shelter so when the animal's time is up at the county shelter, we can remove them to safety in this private  shelter and continue to find homes for them and care for all their needs until such time, thus eliminating their being put to sleep.  Foster homes is our big goal and more spays/neuters to cut down on overpopulation of animals.

The AWL was established in 1965 by a handful of individuals to mainly provide low-cost spay/neuter for animals in the Northern Neck as well as pet adoption and education to the public.   AWL  has grown since then and is now able to provide medical help for pets of those that cannot afford it, in addition to low-cost spay/neuter  programs. It is our aim to prevent the suffering of animals, care for them when there is no owner and to find permanent, loving homes for them.  Spaying/neutering is our number # 1  priority and most likely always will be.
CEO Statement Incorporated in 1965..501(c)(3) nonprofit animal charity.  All Volunteer Operated,  Donations are Tax Deductible as allowed by law.  Source of income:  Memberships, donations, grants fundraisers and AWL Thrift shop.  Number one priority-SPAYING AND NEUTERING OF DOGS AND CATS.  We house no animals....we are not affiliated with any animal shelters, although we provide free spay/neuter for any animal adopted from Lancaster, Northumberland or Westmoreland Shelters as well as Wendy's Feline Friends and A Place in the Sun-Sanctuary's for Cats. We also work very closely with these shelters with placement of their intake animals.  We receive no financial aid from any state or local governments   All accomplished by dedicated VOLUNTEERS--no paid staff what-so-ever.  We have various spay/neuter programs for the community should they not be able to afford the services of a Vet.  We will pay in full or a co-payment is requested if it can be afforded.  But one way or the other, we get these animals sterilized if people come to us.  And more often than not, we reach out to the people with our service just to get the job done.  We are now working closely with the private shelter now in the process of being established--Northern Neck Partners for Pets (NNPP) Lancaster, VA 
Board Chair Statement
When you volunteer at the AWL you not only are helping the animals, you are a representative of one of the most respected organizations/business in the Northern Neck.  It's a fun group and all work together with one goal in mind, and that is the 'animals'.  We have a thriving thrift shop that we raise money by selling all donated items.  Volunteers work the shop selling the goods and this supports our veterinarian bills that exceeded $205,000 in 2016 and over $155,000 in 2013. The public appreciates the work we do and supports our shop with their give away treasurers, which become someone else's treasurers.  Knowing the cause, animals, the biggest challenge is,  we hope donors don't run out of donations.  Our thrift shop is open Monday-Saturday 10am to 4pm.   Our rewards come when we see homeless animals being placed in loving homes.  It's all worthwhile then.  We spayed and neutered over 1,200 animals in 2012, approx. 1,400 in 2016,  and thousands prior to that.
