Voices coordinates a range of activities throughout the year. Our Community Cat Project (CCP) 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.

DO IT FOR THE DOGS!
Our Houses of Wood and Straw (HOWS) Project desperately needs to purchase a pickup truck. Ever since the beginning of the HOWS Project, we have had to borrow, rent, and even beg for the use of someone’s pickup truck. There have been times when our mission to keep dogs warm and dry on cold winter nights was in serious jeopardy!
We are working now to raise the $15,000 that we need to make sure we can continue to deliver the dog houses this fall. Time is critical. The days are getting shorter already and soon winter will be upon us.
Your help is so very important now! Please step up and “Do It for the Dogs!”
We cannot do this without you. Please make your tax deductible donation now!
You can also make your donation via Paypal: HOWS donation site.
Or send your check to:
The HOWS Project
P. O. Box 56
Ruckersville, VA 22968
Please write on your check: “Do It for the Dogs!”
This fall when you see the HOWS truck rolling down the street, you will know that it’s doing the job because you cared!
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?
We are happy to say that we have two locations in Charlottesville, PetSmart, on Community Street in Hollymead, and Pet Supplies Plus on Seminole Trail where you can stop by and drop some pet food of your choice in the bin for pets of people in need in these difficult times.
Come on out, do some shopping, and help the cats and dogs! Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
DO YOU HAVE TRAPS?
Have you borrowed Voices for Animals’ traps and forgotten to return them? Do you know anybody who has forgotten to return our traps? We are running really low on traps, and we would appreciate it if you would please return them. Call: 434-979-1200 or Email: email@example.com to make arrangements to get them to us. Thank you!
