About HSNV

We are so excited to tell you about the Humane Society of Northern Virginia (HSNV) powered by A3P! As a group of pet lovers, it's so awesome to be able to do what we are most passionate about......saving pet lives!

We hope that you will join us on this journey of love, and sometimes heartache, by volunteering, donating, providing services, and/or sponsoring our efforts.  HSNV can't do it alone but together we can do amazing things to help the pets that desperately need it! We believe "pets for life"  is the gold standard for communities and we will work diligently to help pet owners keep pets in their homes.

Donations are tax-deductible and every penny helps to save the lives of pets. HSNV/A3P is a volunteer-run charity so 100% of your donation supports our mission.

Mission, Vision, and Values

Green Eyed Cat


HSNV and A3P's mission is to promote the human-animal bond and no-kill philosophy through compassion, empathy, and education. To advocate for companion pets by providing them with the care, nurturing, and training for placement into the "right" home for life and provide sanctuary to those older, injured, or otherwise difficult to place animals that are at risk of euthanasia. Our motto is Pets 4 Life.
Dog & Cat Pals


Our vision is living in a community where people value companion animals as lifelong cherished family members and treat them with respect and kindness.
