Program 1

IN 2020 AUGUSTA DOG ADOPTIONS SAVED 343 DOGS, AND 1 CAT FROM AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE. DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, OUR WEEKLY ADOPTION EVENTS AT PETSMART IN WAYNESBORO WERE CANCELLED IN MARCH AND REMAINED CONCELLED THROUGH THE END OF 2020. OUR DEDICATED VOLUNTEER TEAM DID AN AMAZING JOB MANAGING ONLINE APPLICATIONS AND CONDUCTING ONE ON ONE MEET AND GREETS WITH APPROVED ADOPTERS ALL YEAR LONG. THANKS TO A GENEROUS GRANT FROM THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF THE CENTRAL BLUE RIDGE AT YEAR END 2019, WE WERE ABLE TO OFFER LOW COST SPAY/NEUTER SERVICES TO 184 PETS (99 CATS/85 DOGS) OWNED BY 115 INDIVIDUALS/FAMILIES IN STAUNTON, WAYNESBORO AND AUGUSTA COUNTY IN CALENDAR YEAR 2020. THE NEED FOR DRASTICALLY REDUCED SPAY/NEUTER COSTS IN OUR AREA IS STAGGERING AND WE EXPECT THE NEED TO INCREASE DUE TO ECONOMIC CONDITIONS DURING THE PANDEMIC. MULTIPLE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY REACHED OUT TO US FOR ASSISTANCE AFTER BECOMING UNEMPLOYED DURING THE PANDEMIC. WE ARE CONTINUING COMMUNITY SPAY/NEUTER SERVICES IN 2021 IN HOPES OF REACHING MORE PEOPLE AND PETS IN NEED. MANY OF THE DOGS ADA ACCEPTS INTO OUR FOSTER PROGRAM ARE LEFT BEHIND BY OTHER RESCUES BECAUSE THEY ARE CONSIDERED "UNADOPTABLE OR "DIFFICULT TO ADOPT". WE ARE OFTEN THE LAST RESORT FOR LARGE MIXED BREEDS, HOUNDS, PIT BULL TYPE DOGS AND SENIOR DOGS THAT ARE DAYS FROM EUTHANASIA. DONATIONS TO ADA ALLOW US TO PROVIDE THE CARE EACH INDIVIDUAL DOG NEEDS. WE THEN OFFER THE PUBLIC A HEALTHY FULLY VETTED DOG THAT IS NOW SAFE FROM EUTHANASIA AND READY FOR ADOPTION AT AN AFFORDABLE FEE. THIS ENCOURAGES ADOPTION AND DECREASES THE PURCHASES OF ANIMALS ONLINE AND AT PET STORES. SINCE 2007 OVER 4,400 DOGS HAVE BEEN SAVED. ADA IS AN ALL VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION. WE HAVE NO PAID STAFF AND NO PHYSICAL SHELTER. WE RELY ON THE KINDNESS OF FOSTER HOMES AND EXIST SOLELY ON DONATIONS AND FEES FOR ADOPTION.

THIS PARTNERSHIP IS ONE OF CELEBRATION. SINCE MAY OF 2017, ADA HAS TRANSFERRED IN 521 DOGS FROM THE PCPAS, SLASHING THEIR EUTHANASIA RATE BY 50% IN THE FIRST SEVEN MONTHS ALONE. WE ORIGINALLY REACHED OUT TO PCPAS IN 2017 AFTER DISCOVERING THEY HAD THE THIRD HIGHEST EUTHANASIA RATE (42%) IN VIRGINIA. WE ARE ESTATIC TO REPORT THAT BY YEAR END 2017, THEIR EUTHANASIA RATE DROPPED TO 21% AND TO 13% BY YEAR END 2018 AND 2019 AND TO 6% IN 2020 AS REPORTED TO THE VA DEPT OF AGRICULTURE.
