Charting impact

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

To prevent animal cruelty and promote the humane treatment of animals through education, spay-neuter programs, veterinary care and adoption. For the Northern Neck to be known as a humane community, where animals are respected and treated with compassion.

Strengthen Partnerships: Join forces with others that are working to support animals and their families.
Advance Programs: Grow and support our spay-neuter programs, pet adoptions, transportation, veterinary care, shelter construction, education, food banks, and public policy.
Ensure our financial health: Strategically increase our revenues from our thrift shop and grants.
Enrich our volunteers' experience: Identify ways their experience can be deepened and enriched to retain and recruit volunteers.
Bolster Communications: Invest time and resources in branding and public relations

We have joined forces with Northern Neck Partners for Pets to build a no-kill shelter. We have joined with Healthy Harvest Food Bank to give food to family pets through their distribution system. We are in talks with the Haven, a facility for abused women and children to care for their pets while the women and children are in the facility.
We have a thriving thrift shop which consistently brings in over $400,000 annually
We have about 50 volunteers who help in the thrift shop, on projects, fostering, transporting animals and on communication.
We have identified a volunteer to apply for grants and received an increase in grants in 2022
We have a new volunteer who is helping us with branding and PR through updating our website and two other volunteers who help with the website, facebook and instagram communications efforts.
We have joined the local Chamber of Commerce to increase communications within the community.

We have given approximately $200,000 to Northern Neck Partners for Pets to help build a no-kill shelter and our President has a seat on their Board. We have joined with Healthy Harvest Food Bank to give food to family pets through their distribution system. In 2022 we provided 25,928 pounds of dog and cat food to these needy pets. We are in talks with the Haven, a facility for abused women and children to care for their pets while the women and children are in the facility. We spent $258,155 in 2022 for veterinary care, fostering and Boarding, food and medicine for community cats, food for pets in families who participate in the Healthy Harvest Food Bank, humane education books for the elementary students in our service area and transportation of animals to other rescue groups. This year we are providing pet oxygen masks and location stickers to the volunteer fire departments in our service area.

We are currently working on a plan to recruit a veterinarian to our service area.
