Web of Life Animal Outreach
Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to protecting the "web of life" by saving injured, abused, neglected and unwanted companion animals along with an emphasis on education through demonstration. In addition, we will facilitate the end of euthanizing healthy animals simply because there are not enough homes for them all. It is our belief and strategy that education is the key to achieving these goals. By teaching responsible pet ownership skills and compassion for life to potential adopters and elementary school age children we will indeed change the future.
One of our main goals is making sure adopted pets stay part of their new families for as long as they live. By educating the adopting family about their newest member and offering classes to help with the adjustment, we hope to find very low to no return rates. When an animal is adopted the family will receive a breed specific book on their new cat or dog. If the animal is a mixed breed they will receive a book on rescued cats or dogs. Every adoption package will also include a new parenting guide filled with helpful tips on integrating a new pet into the household, food coupons, a collar and identification tag. No animal will be adopted out until it is spayed or neutered and reference checks and a home check have been completed and approved by a trained staff member of Web of Life Animal Outreach. All this is done in an attempt to get the animal the best possible home and ensure they are safe and well cared for through the entire extent of their natural lives.
Web of Life Animal Outreach. Inc is a licensed 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the state of Virginia. Our mission is to find every companion animal in our program, a loving responsible care giver committed to them for life. We are a no-kill animal rescue organization founded on the principal belief that all living things are connected and earth's many species form an intricate "web of life". Through the "web of life" we are all interdependent on each other and whatever fate befalls one species will eventually befall every living thing. For this reason we feel compelled to help animals and educate people toward a more compassionate future for us all.
