The King George Animal Rescue League is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit group, striving to help improve the lives of animals in King George, VA through adoption, spay/neuter and vaccination programs!  We strive to increase awareness of the plight of homeless animals in our county and educate our citizens in the proper care of pets.  Existing solely on donation, fundraisers, and limited grants, we have rescued hundreds of cats and dogs, provided funds for emergency medical care for county residents, and have spayed/neutered hundreds of animals in our community of King George and the surrounding area.

In 2018:

  • 89 animals were adopted through KGARL
  • 215 dogs were rescued through our Hound program
  • 320 dogs were rescued through our Shelter Transfer program
  • Vet care for 85 animals at the county pound (KGAC) was paid for by KGARL
  • Spay/Neuter assistance was provided to 71 pets and 65 feral cats through our voucher program

KGARL's Programs
Animal Care
KGARL provides TLC and medical care for animals that are available for adoption. We work with the King George Petco, where we house cats that are ready to find their forever homes. KGARL foster homes also provide a safe place for homeless animals to live, until they can be adopted into a loving family. We are always in need of foster homes for cats and dogs; both long term and short term. Visit our Foster Home page to learn more about how you can help us save a life!

Helping Hounds
KGARL's Helping Hounds program exists to provide medical and foster care to hunting dogs (mostly Foxhounds, Coonhounds, and Bloodhounds) in order to move them from our local county shelters and into rescue groups or adoptive homes. Find out more about this wonderful program!

Free-Roaming Cats
KGARL provides vet care, vaccinations, and spay/neuter to stray and feral cats. 

Spay & Neuter Assistance
For the last 17 years, KGARL has provided financial assistance to local residents who would not otherwise be able to afford the cost of spaying and neutering their pets. In 2016, we were able to help spay/neuter 167 pets! More details on this program, and how you can request assistance, are provided on our Spay and Neuter page.

Shelter Assistance
KGARL works with King George Animal Control (the local county pound) to provide medical care, vaccines, and supplies to shelter animals. Our volunteers take pictures of the animals, and send out weekly shelter reports to animal rescue groups. We work with other groups to move the animals into foster homes. Often, this requires KGARL to fund medical care, provide short-term foster homes, and transport the animal to the other group. Because of the efforts of our volunteers, the euthanasia rate in King George County is under 5%! Learn more about our work with the shelter, and how you can help!
