Help RAWL by registering your car with Virginia's Animal Friendly Plates! It's only $25 online or at your local DMV and you can show your support for spay and neuter programs. Virginia distributes funds to local shelters for spay and neuter programs for dogs and cats. RAWL provides these services for dogs and cats through our low-cost Spay and Neuter program.

From the DMV's site:

Revenue Sharing: As a revenue-sharing plate, after the sale of the first 1,000 qualifying plates, $ 15.00 of the $ 25.00 fee is transferred to the locality in which the vehicle is registered to support dog and cat sterilization programs. A portion of your fee may betax deductible.

If you live in Rappahannock County, you can directly support RAWL through this program. Even if you live outside of Rappahannock County, please consider getting an animal-friendly plate for your vehicle and support your local spay and neuter program.

RAWL is looking for all types of volunteers.

Ways you can help:

One-on-one time with the dogs - walking, training, grooming or just giving them love
