Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We currently do not have any problems to address. There are issues that we would like to see improved in our community and state wide with better animal cruelty laws.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Medical Rehabilitation Fund

The Medical Rehabilitation Fund was created to give ill or injured animals the medicine or surgery required to save their lives. Animals are pulled from local shelters that are in need of medical care, that the shelters cannot provide. Animals requiring medical care prior to adoption will be rehabilitated in a loving foster home.

Population(s) Served

Animals needing a temporary home while awaiting a rescue transport, undergoing a treatable medical issue, or simply too young to be adopted will be placed in a loving foster home.
Foster families are vital in saving lives for adoptable animals by providing temporary homes until they find a loving forever home.
The foster program will provide all the supplies needed to welcome your new foster pet into your home.

Population(s) Served

The Education Program provides information seminars to school aged children in Washington County with an emphasis on the smaller surrounding communities. The importance of spay/neuter and the humane treatment of animals starts with early education. KIND NEWS publications will be available for area schools.

Population(s) Served

ALWC will raise funds for supplies for the Washington County Animal Shelter and the Shelter Clinic. Many items can be donated that are gently used, and other supplies may be purchased or a monetary donation accepted for specific items.

Population(s) Served

Hungry Hearts Pet Food Bank was formed to help Washington County pets in a time of need. If someone owns one pet or numerous, we understand that there are times when the basic necessities can be difficult to provide. ALWC will help those pets in need by providing dog or cat food.

Population(s) Served

This program is vital in saving dogs lives. We select dogs from local shelters that meet certain criteria and place them in out of state rescues or adoptive homes. We transport dogs approximately every two weeks. Many volunteers help with this program by driving, fostering, and helping to select dogs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We have a dream to build an equine facility for Rescue/Rehab/Adoption Center.
Each year there is an increase of horses that we rescue from neglect. Currently we utilize foster homes to house them and we oversee their rehab. Once the horses are rehabbed, we have a trainer that will work with them and prepare them for adoption.

Currently, it is a matter of fundraising and building each year on our revenue to be able to afford this goal.

We have the land for the facility, we need the funds to build it! We initially have a 5 year plan to raise the funds.

To date, we have always raised enough funds to cover our programs. We are not government funded, all of our funding comes from our fundraising events, donors and business sponsors.

Our 5 year plan for our dream equine facility is delayed this year, due to the pandemic and not being able to host our annual fundraisers.

Next year 2021 we hope to start a campaign announcing our 5 year plan for the Rescue/Rehab/Adoption Center for equines.
