  • SWVAL is not a brick and mortar facility. Because of that, we need YOU to help foster our animals while they are in search of their forever homes.
    Become a SWVAL volunteer or board member and help change the lives of these homeless animals.
    Don’t have the time to volunteer or foster? Donate so that we can keep our animals in loving homes and out of shelters.

The Southern West Virginia Animal League is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to saving animals’ lives. Our mission is to provide animals in need with healthcare, shelter, socialization, LOVE, and ultimately their furever homes!

It’s important to know that SWVAL is not a brick and mortar facility. We are a rescue network and we rely solely on a network of foster homes, fundraisers, and the help of our community to continue to reach out to needy animals. Please consider getting involved with SWVAL by becoming a foster, volunteering at/attending a fundraiser and networking our events.
