About Us

Mission Statement: To practice and promote responsible pet ownership through education and outreach in the community.

Rockbridge Animal Alliance is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 organization founded in 2014.  Our goal is to work with the public and support other animal related organizations to improve the lives of Rockbridge area pets and homeless dogs and cats.  We are established to aid in community outreach, humane education, and community assistance programs with an emphasis on the importance of spaying and neutering, and keeping pets with their families by providing essential supports.

We work closely with Cats Unlimited, RARA, and other local organizations. We do not receive any taxpayer/government funding and rely on grants and donations to carry out our mission. We will not rehome dogs or cats but will help advertise animals.
