Animal Friends of North Central West Virginia is a non-for-profit no-kill animal sanctuary. The organization is lead by a wonderful person, Cynthis Lucas, who opened her heart to helping animals in need. The sanctuary currently has many rescued cats and dogs and even a rat saved from a neuroscience department. Some of the other animals that got to live at Animal Friends included: a dear, a pig, opossums, etc. All animals go through a vet examination before they can enter the premise. This is a precautionary measure to protect the animals that are currently residing there; those that require special attention are isolated from the rest to aid their recovery or to generally help their transition. Cynthis makes frequent visits to the local kill shelters and continues to pull out the animals that are qualified as the least adoptable. She is also constantly planning and carrying out ideas that help to make the sanctuary the best it can be for the residing and prospective animals. The organization is benefited by many wonderful volunteers who are true animal friends. Their time and input seem to be always appreciated by Cynthis, and certainly reinforced by the animals. Cynthis, as well as other selfless individuals that all have become a part of this wonderful, and quite frankly, one of a kind organization are all an incredible inspiration and hope not only for animals, but also for people that strive to believe.
