Vola Lawson Leadership Society
The Vola Lawson Leadership Society is made up of major gift donors who have given $500.00 or more during a calendar year. Thanks to Leadership Society members, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is able to provide the highest levels of shelter and care to animals in need, while promoting adoptions of companion animals and humane education in the Alexandria community.
In addition to cash donations, the Leadership Society also includes Volunteers who have given a high number of volunteer hours. Many volunteers go above and beyond for the Shelter. We also include as members business partners who have provided care to our shelter animals. Many animal care providers and veterinary establishments provide support to shelter animals with special needs that we would not otherwise be able to give. We thank all donors, volunteers, and partners.
The Vola Lawson Leadership Society, formerly called the PAWSitive Impact Circle (PIC), was named to honor the Shelter’s namesake who passed away in December 2013. Her leadership was instrumental in establishing a modern and progressive animal shelter for the City of Alexandria. Members are true leaders as well, following Vola’s example, and such a distinguished group is worthy of such a designation.
Members will receive a special lapel pin, an invitation to an annual reception, and invitations to exclusive Society member events throughout the year.
