WCAL is a foster based rescue organization. This means that we don't have a brick and mortar facility, but instead rely on our amazing network of foster families to provide temporary homes for our animals until they are adopted. Foster families are true heroes and without them we couldn't say 'yes' to the many animals who need our help. 



WCAL is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization with no facility to maintain. This allows us to keep our overhead costs very low. We crunched the numbers, and WCAL spends an average of $84 to help each animal in our program. Our budget stretches a long way! Your donations help cover medical costs, spay & neuter surgeries, transport, foster care, pet food and supplies. 

Our donors can rest assured that their dollars will make a very real difference in the lives of local animals. Consider joining our monthly giving program, donating to our medical fund or sponsoring a WCAL animal today!
