String of Pearls Animal Sanctuaries, Inc.
String of Pearls was founded and is dedicated to:
Providing a no-kill alternative to the problem of stray, homeless and deserted animals in the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding areas
Insuring that a temporary refuge is provided for stray, homeless and deserted animals
Working to select adoptable animals and re-train them to be adopted by new owners, according to approved standards and guidelines established by the SOP Board of Directors
Accepting animals into a sanctuary arrangement whereby selected animals may live out their lives in peace and dignity
Providing to the public a low cost spay/neuter program to reduce the number of unwanted animals
Providing emergency rescue service for injured or distressed animals
Educating and informing both children and adults about responsible pet ownership and increasing public awareness of animal rights through such activities as, but not limited to:
Visiting pet programs
Humane education workshops
Raising funds by any practical means, to support SOP’s programs, increase public awareness and participation
String of Pearls operates three distinct and separate programs:
1). Animal rescue/re-homing/adoption - here we strive to place good animals who face a critical juncture in their lives in new homes. We serve as a clearinghouse of animals to adopt and any animal accepted as a "Pearl" is followed by Pearls for life. Should any adopted animal face euthanasia or homelessness again in its lifetime, Pearls will commit to seeing that it is rehomed or sent to sanctuary for life.
This is the Pearls Promise.
2). Sanctuary services - For all animals, designated "sanctuary" spots are available. Sanctuary provides the animal with care and love until the end of its life. Pearls has both small and large animal sanctuary slots, and is actively looking for homes that would like to perform this important function.
3). Public Education - String of Pearls endeavors to take the lead in providing public education and information about spay/neuter resources in Virginia, as well as about appropriate care of animals and other useful pet owner tips. Pearls provides a quarterly newsletter,"Pearls of Wisdom", in which these educational concepts are also disseminated. Pearls also offers seminars and workshops on all aspects of pet care.
