An important goal of AWFVA is to prepare dogs and cats for adoption by the public. Since we do not euthanize any of our rescued animals, the best measure of our animal rescue success is the adoption rate that we achieve. Room is limited for rescued animals. When we reach our capacity to provide quality care for rescues, the only means to succeed at our primary goal of rescue is to operate a highly effective and successful adoption program. Our adoption program is supplemented by our Fostering Program by which we identify volunteers who wish to provide for the care of animals at the expense of AWFVA.
