Give a Wag! Gives to Fredericksburg Shelters

Located south of Washington, D.C. on the shore of the  Rappahannock River, Fredericksburg, Virginia is known for a charming historic area, battlefields of the Civil War and home of George Washington's mother.

The Old Dominion Humane Society rescues dogs from across Virginia and other states from kill shelters. This non-profit organization offers bi-weekly adoption Sundays, making ap-paw-tunities for pets to find fur-ever homes. They rely on a foster dog program in which they match the dogs to the owner's lifestyle. The organization provides a crate, medical care, and food. In return, the dog has a safe home, receives socialization in a home environment, and is still available for adoption. 

Committed to making bonds that last, the adoption process includes time for family and future Fido to have a meet-and-greet and become acquainted. All of the dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested, and microchipped for a fresh start with the new family. Adoptions are held on Saturday afternoons. 

Volunteers are critical to the success of this organization. They mobilize for days like Cha-Cha Chihuahua Sunday in which they received chihuahuas in need of immediate care and placement. Volunteers are regularly needed for dog walking of the animals being held at the shelter. Volunteers help at the adoption events. They also take the dogs in their own cars to veterinarian visits. Donations of money are needed as well, but they post the exact articles they need on their website if you'd like to give that way instead.

    #4 Play Days at the Duff Dog Park

    It's time for frisky romping at the Duff Dog Park! This fenced park has 3 fenced areas for off-leash play - an area for small dogs, large dogs, and 5 acres of space for all dogs. The play areas are shaded, which is a real treat in the summer when pooches are running and playing fetch! There are agility toys, water, and bag dispensaries. Frisbee anyone? An added treat is a tail-wagging walk along the adjoining Rappahannock River that borders the park.

    #5 Oldest Dog Mart in America

    In 1698, a Dog Mart was formed between the Pamunkey Indians and the settlers to promote trade. The settlers need the produce and fur for English hunting dogs. The event continued until the Revolutionary War. It was reinstated in 1926 to coincide with the hunting season. The event was again suspended during World War II and revitalized again in the 1970s. The Dog Mart has vendors, demonstrations, and activities that are all about dogs! It's a day to celebrate the place that our smart, canine companions have had in making fur-ends across cultures and time!
