Alleghany Highlands All Breed Rescue

AHABR rescues animals who are homeless and unwanted, rehabilitates them, trains them, and finds for them the best “forever home. Promotes animal welfare.

To rescue homeless or mistreated companion animals in the Virginia Alleghany Highlands and find them forever, loving homes wherever we can. To educate the public in the humane treatment of companion animals (i.e., dogs and cats), including spaying/neutering and other animal health and welfare issues.

We are an all-volunteer, non-profit, tax-exempt organization. We are a No Kill rescue and we keep our rescues in Foster Homes. We primarily get dogs and cats from the community and we also pull animals from the Alleghany Humane Society, in an effort to save dogs that need extra medical services. Once the body is healed, we begin rehabilitation, socialization, and obedience training. We are dedicated to the spaying and neutering of dogs and cats and work to educate the community about humane treatment of companion animals.

Almost Home: Nelson Co SPCA

A 501c3 "No-Kill" facility - our mission is to improve animal welfare by providing care and adoption of "unwanted" companion animals in Nelson County VA.

The Humane Society/SPCA of Nelson County (HS/SPCA) strives to improve animal welfare by providing care and adoption of "unwanted" companion animals through: our "no-kill" adoption center, foster care networks, satellite adoption venues, and Kitten & Puppy Rescue/Transport Programs; by funding veterinary services and education programs; and, by controlling over-population through low-cost Spay-Neuter-Vaccinate and Feral Cat Trap/Neuter/Release programs. Our goal is to extend the no-kill philosophy throughout our county, so that no healthy, non-aggressive animal is euthanized. Animals being surrendered by their owners are accepted on a space available basis, if they are judged to be adoptable. Animals are also selected from unclaimed or unwanted animals at the Nelson County Animal Control Facility after they are evaluated by the SPCA and judged to be adoptable. Strays continue to go through the Animal Control Facility until their "stray hold" is up. No animal will be put down unless it is judged to be dangerously aggressive or untreatably ill. The HS/SPCA (also known as the Almost Home Pet Adoption Center) now has several part-time employees but still relies heavily on volunteer help. Because of our efforts here at Almost Home, thousands of animals have been saved and are now living in permanent homes.
