Bob Ragan Humane Education Fund

BobBob and his wife, Pat, are long-time supporters of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington and parents to shelter animals Noel, a three-legged dog adopted from AWLA in 2010, and Wally, a 15 year-old cat. Both Bob and Pat also have an enduring respect for wildlife; especially wildlife in the urban environment.

Recognizing the critical role that education plays in understanding and respecting animals, Bob established this fund to provide important support to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington to underwrite a wide variety of animal welfare activities that will encourage children and adults to recognize and promote the important role that animals play in all of our lives.

Donations to this fund will allow League staff to visit schools, scout troops, and many other community organizations to provide guidance on pet overpopulation, responsible pet ownership, preparing pets for a new baby, bite prevention, coexisting with urban wildlife and many other important issues affecting animals and people in the Arlington community.
