About BAWF






Bath Animal Welfare Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not for profit tax-exempt corporation governed by a board of six directors: Anita Back, Nancy Johnson, Sheila Judah, Marion Kober, Linda Vinson and Sharrie Woodzell. Our mission is to rescue homeless, neglected, sick and injured dogs and cats in our community.


All activities are funded by donations and fundraisers. BAWF is run entirely by unpaid volunteers.


With much gratitude to our supporters, BAWF has provided low-cost and free spay/neuter procedures, resulting in dramatic declines in unwanted litters of puppies and kittens.




BAWF transports it dogs to its adoptive homes when they are approved and ready for their pet.


Bath County is the second smallest county in Virginia (population). Most of our dogs are adopted out to homes in Pennsylvania, Maryland or Northern Virginia. We do not have enough homes in this county for the homeless animals that we have.


We have been saving dogs for over eighteen years. If the adoption does not work out, we will take the dog back and work very hard to find the dog a forever home.


We try very hard for the perfect match.
