Championed by a group of animal lovers who wanted to provide our community
with an alternative to the policy-driven approach to animal rescue and
welfare, Animal HOPE Alliance was incorporated in 2006 and received non-profit
status in 2008. We are staffed by volunteers, including a seven-member board
of directors. All told, Animal HOPE Alliance brings together people with 100
years of combined experience in animal rescue and welfare. We do not operate
a shelter, but instead work collaboratively with a low-cost spay/neuter
clinic to bring hands-on grassroots activities and services to Montgomery
County, VA that serve the needs of our community's animals.
We strive to uphold our mission--to provide humane, responsible, and loving
care for lost, abandoned, unwanted, neglected, ill, injured, or abused
companion animals. So far, we have rescued more than 100 pets and
spayed/neutered 515 in 2008 alone. Through our efforts and with the help of the
community, we will continue to rescue animals, promote spaying and
neutering, and place animals in loving and appropriate "forever" homes.
