Our History

In September of 2004, a couple dedicated animal lovers came together to address animal issues in our community.  Just a few volunteers soon grew into a large group of committed volunteers focusing on spay/neuter, humane education, animal cruelty, and shelter support.

With no paid staff, every aspect of every project relies on the dedication and commitment of volunteers.  We spend hundreds of hours each year working toward the same goal: improving the lives of companion animals in our local community.

In the last 13 years, we have:

  • Brought low-cost spay/neuter services to our community through programs like the Neuter Commuter and Spay/Neuter Coupon program.  Work resulted in a clinic opening up in our community.
  • Photographed more than 15,000 shelter animals to promote on Petfinder and social media.
  • Acquired a $150,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to purchase a mobile adoption van.  More…
  • Sponsored humane education programs in schools for 10 years, educating more than 60,000 students in Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park.  More…
  • Sponsored two Free Little Libraries at the local animal shelters.  More…
  • Sponsored the area’s only pet food pantry.
  • Microchipped 4,600 shelter animals.  More…
  • Led the advocacy campaign for a new animal shelter.  More…
  • Donated $6,000 worth of animal books to all Prince William County elementary schools.  More…
