We are very proud to announce that the Animal Welfare League of the Northern Neck has earned Candid's Platinum Seal of Transparency.

Candid (formerly GuideStar) is the world’s largest source of information on nonprofits, foundations, and grants, and the Platinum Seal is its highest recognition for nonprofit transparency. To receive the Platinum Seal, the Animal Welfare League shared extensive information about its organization and operations, including financial data and evidence of its impact on the lives of dogs and cats in the Northern Neck. The Platinum Seal of Transparency is yet another demonstration of our commitment to the Northern Neck community and our generous supporters.

Candid is a great resource for potential donors to see in-depth information about our goals, strategies, abilities, and achievements. You can find our Candid profile here.

AWL has a new community program to provide primary schools with books about humanely treating animals.
