Mia was found as a stray, so we don't know much about her past. But we do know that she is a very sweet little girl. Mia is stunning with a coal black coat and soft brown eyes. She is shy and a little wary at first. But give her half a second, take a seat and she will quickly hop in your lap and accept all the pets you have to give. Mia is learning to walk on leash and appears to be house-trained. She has had fun interacting with the other dogs at the rescue.
5 yrs old - male
Patches has had a rocky start to life. He was mistreated and such can be cautious about new friends (particularly men). However, once you win him over with a tossed ball or treat, he bonds quickly and wants nothing more than to be your best buddy. Patches loves playing with a ball, going on walks and car rides, and giving kisses!

Athena took them all in and nursed them like they were her own!! In fact, having those kittens really seemed to cheer up the grieving momma cat. This is one special girl!! Sweet and affectionate Athena will make a wonderful companion for some lucky family.

Lulu came to WAAAG after she and her sister Clara had been turned loose as barn cats when their owner died. Having never lived in a barn, neither one was happy with their accommodations. When they arrived at WAAAG, they were both quite frightened little girls. At first we thought they should be adopted together but the longer they stay at WAAAG, they more we see that they are both very independent. Lulu is quiet and likes to be near her kennel but loves it when her kitty friends come to visit, especially the younger kittens. Given the chance, we're pretty sure that Lulu will be the one to curl up with you on the couch!
Brownie - female
approx DOB 8/8/18
Brownie was one of 5 kittens found with their mother, Muffin, living under a porch. Brownie is a healthy, adorable girl with a beautiful black and tan tortoiseshell coat. She is a shy little girl that would do well with another confident kitty companion to show her the ropes. With a little bit of love and patience she will warm up to her people and she never backs down from a good laser light chase or a yummy treat. Brownie is very playful and gets along well with her brothers and sisters and the other cats in the cat cabin.

This sweet girl came to us from a shelter who could not afford the surgery and care she needed. Brittany had multiple tumors/growths in her ears from untreated ear infections.

Meet our kind and gentle soul, Diesel. Diesel ended up at an overcrowded county shelter in Southern VA, as a stray. When his owner was notified, instead of coming to pick him up, he asked if they could, “just gas him” because he was too old and kept escaping his chain. The shelter didn’t want to put him down, but his time there was limited. The volunteer rescue group, Rescue & RemEMBER, jumped into action and contacted WAAAG.
2-3 yrs - female
Muffin was living under a porch with her kittens (Cupcake, Brownie, Cookie, Pumpkin, Pecan). We call them Muffin's Crumbs :) They were brought to WAAAG to start a better life. She has done a wonderful job protecting and raising her babies outside, but that's no life for a kitty and babies. Her kittens are slowly being adopted and now Muffin too is ready for a forever home. She loves to curl up in your lap, be petted and gets along well with the other cats in the cat cabin. She is spayed and is up to date on her vaccines

Batman is one cool and smooth dude! He showed up at a barn where we feed some cats. We neutered and vaccinated him and had him crash with us for a couple of days. We noticed that he was really enjoying the indoors (and he’s super sweet), so we gave him a space and we are looking for an inside home for him. He LOVES affection and he loves to have conversations with us… its almost like he knows what we’re saying.
Remy’s mom Poppy was found as a stray and brought to a local county shelter. 2 days later she had 5 adorable boy kittens!

Van Gogh was found by one of our volunteers. He was extremely underweight, slightly anemic, but VERY friendly. We held him for Fauquier Co SPCA on a 10 day stray hold waiting to see if he was claimed. He was not, thus he is now a WAAAG kitty onto a better life! Van Gogh was aptly named as he has an old hematoma that ruptured and the ear tissue collapsed. He is not in pain, just has some character to him :) Right now our main goal is to get this guy healthy so he can become the love of a new family.
7/8 yrs old - male
Cole is a smart boy who is food oriented and very trainable. He looks forward to his walks everyday, but otherwise he just wants to hang out and chew on his favorite antler. Being older, Cole is very laid back and extremely gentle when taking treats. However, we feel that Cole should go to an adult home or one with older children as he doesn't know his own strength when he does play. To give him a change of scenery, Cole enjoyed a “day out” recently with one of our volunteers - “Cole took right away to being in a house. He followed me around and laid at my feet when I was stationary. I was afraid of him marking all over the house since multiple dogs and cats have lived here, but there was none of that! He let me know when he needed to go out by standing at the sliding glass door and never once did he try to get on the furniture! We had a great afternoon together!” Cole is good with canine friends but should not go to a home with cats. Cole will make a loyal loving companion for some lucky person.
11 yrs old - female
Sophie was with WAAAG 5 years ago. She is around 11 years old and blind in her right eye. Sophie LOVES tennis balls. She loves to play catch and chew on the fuzzy coating. A woman adopted her that spent most of her time in bed with round the clock care. She couldn’t walk, but she could throw the ball for her... Sophie would bring the ball up onto to her bed, chew on it a little, and then pass it on to her mom for her to toss....all day. At night and during nap time, Sophie would curl up to her. The caretakers would take her for walks. On Aug 20th, Sophie’s mom passed away. Sophie is kind and gentle and loves everyone and even gives the baby soft kisses. Come meet Sophie, you'll fall in love.

2 yrs old - male
Trooper is a special boy in so many ways. Not only is he super good looking, but his eyes are especially soulful, destined to melt your heart. Trooper came to us scared and untrusting of people. It took a few months for him to trust us and not cower, bark, and run away. However, gaining that trust was well worth the wait! Once he felt safe he came out of his shell and showed us the super calm and loving boy he was hiding inside. Potential adopters need to be aware that the Trooper you come to see (barking, nervous, cowering) is not the Trooper that will become your forever lap-loving friend once he learns to trust you. Gaining this trust however, will take time and patience. A big boost to Trooper's confidence is other dogs! Even if a new dog barks at him, he patiently waits for them to become his friend. He enjoys it when the other dogs at the rescue go on walks with him and when they come and run along his fence line. When new dogs come into the rescue, we put them next to Trooper's pen as he seems to have a knack for helping them settle and know that WAAAG is safe. Trooper loves walks. When he sees you coming with his harness, he stops what he's doing and crouches down to have his harness put in place. When on a walk, he loves to explore and bounds ahead with joy. Trooper would do well with a dog sibling that could help him adjust to a new life.
Shelby & Rocco
Shelby 4 yrs old - female
Rocco 10 yrs old - male
Shelby and Rocco came to us as an owner surrender due to allergies. Shelby was actually born at WAAAG 4 years ago (she was one of Millie's puppies). She is an energetic girl who loves to run, jump, play catch, tug of war and any other activity you might have in mind. Rocco is a senior gentleman who loves walks and keeps up a spirited pace! But his favorite thing to do is cuddle and have his belly rubbed. If you have room on your sofa, Rocco's your guy! Both want nothing more than to be close to people. They are great with kids and other dogs but have not been tested with cats. These two do everything together and do not like to be apart. Rocco taught Shelby as a pup and now Shelby looks out for Rocco as her big brother in his golden years. For this reason these 2 sweet furbabies are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.
Rocco and Shelby's adoption fee has been covered by a generous sponsor who only wants to see these 2 sweethearts stay together in their forever home.
7 years old - male
This black beauty is Sammy. He is 7 years old and has had only 1 owner his entire life where he was very loved. Tragically, his owner lost her home and was no longer able to take care of him. Sammy is an extremely friendly and laid back kind of kitty who craves attention and likes to be held. We tease about him being Willa & Wistar's nanny as he loves to be out and about with them making sure they are not getting into trouble. Sammy has been tested with dogs and does well.
If you are up for an instant cat family, we would LOVE to see Sammy go with Willa & Wistar as they have formed a special relationship with him. So much so that one of our volunteers has offered to cover Sammy's adoption fee if he is adopted with them!
Maisie & Louis

Louis and his sister, Maisie, appear to be a Maine Coon mix and a bonded pair. They are your typical sweet little kittens - they love to play and they are very curious.

Actually, Chloe is NOT FOR ADOPTION - she was found as a very sick stray. She has multiple mammary tumors that are believed to be cancerous and to have spread to her lungs. On top of that she has diabetes. She will be a sanctuary animal for us. In the meantime, she eats well (she's even gained 2 pounds while in our care!), takes her insulin shots like a pro, and is given the attention she desperately craves and has noticeably lacked in the past. If you would like to sponsor or contribute to Chloe's care, please go to our donate page and indicate that your donation is for Chloe <3

WAAAG received Ginger and her kitties from a hoarding situation where they were being kept in a cage outside. Being the mother of 4 boys is exhausting but Ginger makes it look easy. Ginger is a little shy at first, but quickly warms up and has been known to ask for belly rubs.
Momma Charlotte had 7 kittens on August 3rd, 2017.

This gentle 2yr. old girl, loves all, including kids, and even the local kitty who visits everyday and shares her food! Pippa waits for people to visit and snuggle with her, something she has lacked during her life on the street. She is most happy and calm when she is close to her person - especially if that person also has treats which she takes respectfully. Pippa is very eager for her daily walks, SO eager that she literally jumps into her harness! Then, as if by magic, she transforms into a quiet and well-behaved leash walker. She comes when called and loves to stay with her person. On 5/4/17 Pippa had a litter of 8 puppies. If you would like to learn more about Pippa, please email email@example.com.
Grover - male
Born May 4, 2017
Grover, one of Pippa's pups, is enjoying his foster life, but is still looking for his forever family. This boy is smart and curious, playful and lovable, and almost potty trained at 10 weeks! In addition, he is as cute and fun as he can be! His foster sibling is a senior dog and Grover is very respectful of his space. Grover would prefer a fenced yard with places to explore and run and maybe dog experienced children to play with and give him the exercise he needs. Most importantly, he needs someone who is home to finish his puppy training. For more information about our Grover, please contact Marylee@waaag.org.
Kelly - 7yrs - female
Kelly is an elegantly beautiful, spayed, 7 year old, Penn-Marydel Foxhound. She is black & tan with some well placed white markings. She has a great personality, and gets along with children, pets and other animals. She has a keen desire to be a family member and to be included in any and all activities. Kelly is very smart and learns very quickly. She is docile and quiet enough to sit by your feet or snuggle, and athletic enough to keep up on family outings and running with the kids. She is very polite, well mannered and obedient, and is comfortable in the house or going for a ride in the car.
Kelly was really good at her job as a hunting dog until a crush injury to her front paw made it hard for her to continue. That injury may have ended her first career, but it is not going to impede her in excelling in her new role, of being a loving family member and best friend! For more information on Kelly, please email
Phyllis - 3yrs - female
Phyllis is a VERY SWEET and LOVING little girl. She can be shy at first, but she warms up right away. She loves affection and sitting on laps. Phyllis is looking for a quiet home where she can stay indoors and enjoy sitting in a cozy chair, sunning herself in a cat tree and showing off her gorgeous black coat. She is comfortable with other cats and small dogs, we are not sure how she would be with larger dogs. Phyllis has FIV, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Although there is no cure, many cats infected with FIV live a long and happy life, especially if routine wellness care is provided to aid early disease detection, and exposure to other infectious disease is limited. FIV is generally transmitted through bite wounds. FIV certainly has not stopped Phyllis from enjoying life and sharing her joy! Phyllis is ready and waiting to be welcomed into your loving home and will reward you with cuddles and purrs. For more information on Phyllis, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gemma- 7yrs - female
Gemma was brought from Puerto Rico to the US as a puppy. She is about 7 yrs young, 20 lbs and spayed and current on all vaccines. We are unsure as to her mix, maybe Yellow Lab/Italian greyhound? She has lived with a family most of her life, but was surrendered when the family had their 3rd child and felt that they could no longer provide her with the care she deserves. She is really a happy girl, loves her walks and interaction with her person. She likes closeness, but not overbearing affection. Gemma is a joyful little dog with beautiful eyes and she would probably love an active family who is dog savvy. So far she has gotten along well with another dog at the rescue. We feel she would really thrive in a family with older, respectful children. We are still getting to know this gal, but we one thing we can say for sure is that she is a total sweetheart and just needs a home and a person to call her own. To inquire about sweet Gemma, please email
3-4 yrs - male

He was found as a stray, but it was obvious from the start that he knows family life. He is extremely friendly, enjoys petting and loves to have his head scratched. He has not been at all reactive to the dogs or cats that he has come in contact with. His trip to the vet was uneventful and he rode in the crate like a champ. His blood work shows that he is negative for FIV and FeLV. He is about 3-4 yrs young, up to date on all vaccines and already neutered! In other words, Shadow is perfect and ready to find his forever home!! With his gentle nature he would be a perfect fit for a family with young children or just about anyone. He will certainly make a wonderful companion for someone. Will it be you? For more information on Shadow, please email email@example.com.
