Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets

CFC # 29542

Welcome to A3P and thank you for visiting our website!

We are so excited to tell you about A3P!  We are a relatively new non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization, located in Virginia, that's been a long time in the making.   At this time we are foster-based but our goal is for A3P to will grow into a safe haven for pets that you can be proud of.  

We hope that you will join us on this journey by volunteering, donating, providing services, and/or sponsoring our efforts.  Until we raise enough funds to establish our haven, we will help save lives by seeking fosters for as many pets as possible.  We can't do it alone but together we can do amazing things to help the pets that desperately need it!  We believe "pets for life"  is the gold standard for communities and we will work diligently to help pet owners keep pets in their homes.

Donations are tax deductible and every penny helps to save the lives of pets.  A3P is a volunteer run charity so 100% of your donation supports our mission.

Mission:  A3P is a collaboration of volunteers from a variety of professions who desire to build a complex to house adoptable pets and provide sanctuary to those older, injured, or otherwise difficult to place animals that are at risk of euthanasia. 

 Vision A3P promotes the animal-human bond through compassion, outreach, and education while offering resources to the community, other pet rescue groups, and shelters.  A3P acts as an advocate on behalf of animals in crisis and as an enforcer of their rights and protection.
