The Welfare of Animals Group (WAG) is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in operation in Calhoun County, West Virginia  since September, 2015. Our programs include:

  1. A spay/neuter program for low-income Calhoun County residents’ pets,
  2. Healthy pet care education in our county schools and for the community,
  3. A feral cat Trap-Neuter-Return program.

Our organization is run totally by volunteers.

Since May 2016, WAG has scheduled 1,286 cats and dogs to be spayed/neutered (665 of these were feral cats).
