"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." (Mahatma Gandhi)
AAWV on the radio
Check out WEPM 1340 AM the fourth Monday of the month at 9:30 a.m.on Panhandle Live to learn about animal issues in the Eastern Panhandle. Volunteers from AAWV will be interviewed on humane care of animals, legislation vital to protecting animals and humans, rescue stories, and more.
Don't let your animal become a summertime statistic. Never leave your animal in a car in hot weather, not even "just to run into the store for a moment." If you see an animal in a car, call your local animal control or sheriff's department. You could save a life.
While many animals like being outdoors in the cold weather, not all can stand to be outside for very long. Make sure you are aware of wintertime issues that may affect your animal.
