WAAL's mission is to advocate for all abused, neglected and abandoned animals in the Wichita, Kansas area. WAAL is an action oriented group dedicated to rescuing animals in crisis.
The Wichita Animal Action League, or WAAL, is a volunteer-based licensed rescue and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created in November 2013 to advocate for all abused, neglected and abandoned animals in the Wichita, Kansas area.
WAAL's mission is to be there for the countless animals in the Wichita and surrounding area who are abused, neglected and abandoned each year. We do rescues, rehome needy animals, educate owners, donate supplies and provide pet food to lower income families on an emergency basis. Our volunteers fix fences and do other light repairs to help owners confine pets humanely without chaining. We donate dog houses and straw in the winter to keep outdoor pets warm.
WAAL rescuers knock on doors and communicate with pet owners in a nonthreatening, nonjudgmental way. Our first priority is to get the animals the help they need - we can't do that if we can't gain the owner's trust. We do that by treating each person with respect and recognizing that individual circumstances often lead people into making less than ideal choices for their pets. They may love them very much, but not have the income or facilities to properly care for them. We strive not only to help the animals in these situations, but also their humans who may need social services or other kinds of help to take care of themselves or their children, let alone their pets.
