Welcome to Voices for Animals

Voices for Animals is an all-volunteer charitable organization founded in 1984 and based in Charlottesville, Virginia. We welcome your interest and support!

Voices coordinates a range of activities throughout the year. Our Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project provides sterilizations and vaccinations for feral free-roaming cats in Central Virginia. We also organize tablings at community events, action alerts on a variety of animal protection issues, and pet food drives for the needy, doing all we can to promote a better world for animals.


Calling All Cat Lovers!
