The Wythe-Bland Animal Welfare League (WBAWL) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Wytheville, VA. We have three programs: Spay/Neuter Assistance, Cold Nose Warm Heart pet therapy program, and Friends WYTHE K9's, which cooperates with the Wythe County Dog Shelter to save the lives of dogs. We also network through Facebook and Petfinder to help animals in need of homes.

WBAWL has supported the local community since 2006

  • Hundreds of pets have used WBAWL's spay neuter transport and assistance program to receive low cost spay/neuter surgery.
  • Friends WYTHE K9's helped reduce the euthanasia rate at the Wythe County Dog Shelter from 66% to less than 5%.
  • WBAWL provided beds and fenced outdoor play areas for the dogs at the Wythe County Dog Shelter.
