Your Next Best Friend: Kasey

The people here at RAWL call me a “low rider.” Okay, my legs are shorter than the average bear’s (okay, hound’s) because I’ve got a lot of basset hound blood, but also some beagle relatives somewhere. Name’s Kasey and I’m…
Your Next Best Friend: Carmine

Hey, y’all! I’m a redbone coonhound named Carmine. Like most of my hound kin I am very loving, and playing is a favorite activity, especially with other dogs my size.
Thank you for hosting RAWL’s fundraiser

The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League and all of the RAWL dogs would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Griffin Tavern for hosting a great fundraiser for us last Friday. I would like to send a special thanks…
Your Next Best Friend: Bailey

Fun is my middle name. I’m a 5-month-old foxhound girl. I love everything and everyone I come into contact with — people, other dogs, cats, toys, even the occasional butterfly.
Your Next Best Friend: Smoke

My name is Smoke and I’m a young male American Staffordshire Terrier, though I prefer pitbull terrier as I find that other name kinda stuck up. And, as I always say, “Where there’s Smoke, there’s happy.”
Your Next Best Friend: Lindsay

My name is Lindsay and the RAWL people think I might be mostly Brittany Spaniel or maybe King Charles (or Queen Charlotte, in my case). But I’m really not high-falutin’ enough to be of royal lineage.
Your Next Best Friend: Margie

Hey, everybody! The RAWL Dogs are back, and I’m leading the parade. My name is Margie and I’m a fun-lovin’, ball-playin’, kid-lickin’, cat-friendly fool.
Your Next Best Friend: Nora

Hi, everybody. I’m a shy, little beagle named Nora. I’m 11 months old and weigh 12 pounds. I’d really like to find a home where I can have another dog I can rely on.
Your Next Best Friend: Jordan

Good morning! My name’s Jordan and I’m 45 pounds of handsome, if I do say so myself. I’m a Heinz 57 type of dog breed, made up of all sorts of dogs.
Your Next Best Friend: Roda

My name is Roda, and like my sister, I’m an American foxhound, 1½ years old, around 55 pounds. My sister's been adopted so I've got to get into gear.
Your Next Best Friend: Chloe

Hello, let me introduce myself. I’m a mountain cur named Chloe. Like my ancestors, I am very loyal to my people, obedient, easy to train and can entertain myself.
