Charting impact

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

Our goal is to assist local animal shelter with keeping their euthanasia rates low. We do this through adoption and spay/neuter programs, along with working with other rescue groups with similar goals.

Animal Care
KGARL provides TLC and medical care for animals that are available for adoption. We work with the King George Petco, where we house cats that are ready to find their forever homes. KGARL foster homes also provide a safe place for homeless animals to live, until they can be adopted into a loving family. We are always in need of foster homes for cats and dogs; both long term and short term.

Spay & Neuter Assistance
For the last 17 years, KGARL has provided financial assistance to local residents who would not otherwise be able to afford the cost of spaying and neutering their pets. In 2016, we were able to help spay/neuter 167 pets!

Shelter Assistance
KGARL works with King George Animal Control (the local county pound) to provide medical care, vaccines, and supplies to shelter animals. Our volunteers take pictures of the animals, and send out weekly shelter reports to animal rescue groups. We work with other groups to move the animals into foster homes. Often, this requires KGARL to fund medical care, provide short-term foster homes, and transport the animal to the other group. Because of the efforts of our volunteers, the euthanasia rate in King George County is under 5%!

Helping Hounds
KGARL's Helping Hounds program exists to provide medical and foster care to hunting dogs (mostly Foxhounds, Coonhounds, and Bloodhounds) in order to move them from our local county shelters and into rescue groups or adoptive homes. In 2016, KGARL moved 459 hounds out of local shelters!

Free-Roaming Cats
KGARL provides vet care, vaccinations, and spay/neuter to stray and feral cats. In 2016, 103 feral cats were spayed and neutered!

KGARL was form in 1998 and has procedures in place that have been proven to work. We have many volunteers that have been with the group for over 10 years, and some as long as 17 years! Our volunteers work hard to raise funding and awareness, so that we can help as many animals as possible.

In 2017:
54 animals were adopted through KGARL
215 dogs were rescued through our Hound program
320 dogs were rescued through our Shelter Transfer program
Vet care for 107 animals at the county pound (KGAC) was paid for by KGARL
Spay/Neuter assistance was provided to 76 pets and 48 feral cats through our voucher program
