Voices coordinates a range of activities throughout the year. Our Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project provides sterilizations and vaccinations for feral and unowned free-roaming cats in Central Virginia. Our Houses of Wood and Straw (HOWS) Project provides proper housing, straw bedding, and other comforts for neglected outdoor dogs. Voices for Animals also organizes 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 create a better world for animals.
UPDATE ON PEACEFUL PROTESTS AGAINST RINGLING BROS. AND BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS
Voices for Animals is happy to say that we coordinated two well-attended protests of Ringling performances in May and are continuing to lobby John Paul Jones arena to stop hosting circuses with exotic animals. For details on our continuing work to get animal-based circuses out of Albemarle County, click Keep Circus Animals Out of Albemarle to check the status of the circus campaign.
DONATIONS OF PET FOOD ARE URGENTLY NEEDED!
The recent economy has not been kind to any of us, but some people are struggling now to find the resources to feed their pets. Voices for Animals is currently holding a pet food drive to assist low-income people with pet food donations. Can you help us with this pressing need?
Please stop by Pet Supplies Plus in Charlottesville and drop some pet food of your choice in the bin just inside the door for pets of people in need in these difficult times.
Come on out, do some shopping, and help the cats and dogs!
DO YOU HAVE TRAPS?
