Wags n Wine – Sept. 21, 2014
The 2014 Wags-N-Wine was a huge success. Thanks to over 130 people and what seemed like that same number of dogs who came out and joined us to benefit our Wounded Heroes. It was a gorgeous day at Barrel Oak Winery, the pizza was delicious, everyone got a great deal on the silent auction items (some of you more than others<347.gif>), the photos are great, please check out the link below and a great time was had by all. Thanks for coming and we’ll see you next Sept. 20th at Barrel Oak Winery for the 3rd Annual Wags-N-Wine.

October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month
Please go to your local Shelter and consider adding an adorable adoptable into your family. If you live in Prince William County, we are featuring a Pick of the Week each week in Oct. and if that dog gets adopted, the new family gets a great goody bag filled with lots of doggy items for their new family member. So please consider adopting and give a shelter dog a wonderful holiday season and a new lease on life.
2014 Best Friends National Conference
The 2014 Best Friends National Conference is right around the corner and we will be there with our smart phones and newly learned Twitter and Instagram skills. So please follow us Oct. 22 – 26 as we bring you updates and pictures from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and the Natl. Conference in Las Vegas.
We are pleased to announce that the Prince William Humane Society has been selected for a Community Foundation of Northern Virginia Welfare Grant in the amount of $3000 made possible by funding from the Margery Barkdull Memorial Fund for Animal Welfare.
The grant is to be used to support the Seniors 4 Seniors Adoption Program. We are most grateful to the Community Foundation for their acknowledgement of our efforts to save the lives of homeless senior pets while enriching the lives of our senior citizens and we are especially thankful for their generous support.
If you or someone you know is 60 or over and looking for the unconditional love only pets can provide, please visit the Prince William County Animal Shelter at 14807 Bristow Rd., Manassas, VA 20112 and consider adopting one of our beautiful senior pets (5 yrs and older). Each of these wonderful animals still have a lot to offer, but the most important is their love and companionship. And, thanks to the Margery Barkdull Fund for Animal Welfare, these special adoptions are free.
INTERESTED IN ADOPTING
If you are interested in adopting any of these fabulous dogs, please contact the Pr. Wm. County Animal Shelter at 703-792-5769 for an application. They are all very precious and special each in their own way. And, after what they have been through, they deserve a chance at a new and wonderful life. Will you be the one lucky enough to share your life with them?
Donations are still needed to pay for the ongoing treatments and care for these and all the sick and injured homeless pets that require medical care at the Shelter. These are only the worst of those we’ve helped so far this year and the need does not end when one broken leg heals.
Please remember, We can’t do it without YOU and every donation makes a difference! Thank You for Your Generosity!
2013 Updates, Look What You’ve Accomplished
First and foremost, we want to thank you so very much for your care, compassion and generosity without which the Prince William Humane Society would not be able to provide the critical funding for the several programs and funds that directly benefit the Prince William County Animal Shelter and our community’s homeless pets.
Next, we would like to take a few minutes and let you know what we’ve been able to accomplish strictly through donations in our first year…

Warrior Buddies Program featured in
Bull Run Observer
Warrior Buddies is a program that “brings unconditional love to our nation’s heroes,” according to Lori Leary, president of the Prince William Humane Society. She says there are similar programs around the country, but with the proximity to Fort Belvoir and Quantico she thought that the program would be a great way for homeless dogs to find homes and become service teams for wounded veterans… Read More
