Since its inception in 1986, the Animal Welfare League has placed nearly 2,500 companion animals in forever homes. In 2010, 41 dogs and cats were rescued and placed with loving families. Animal Welfare League volunteers care for homeless pets, rescue and rehabilitate companion animals, educate and assist the community, and care for several communities of feral cats.
When we get new pets in, they are immediately sent to a local veterinarian for a wellness exam, to get current shots, and to be spayed or neutered, if necessary.

If you see a pet you are interested in, please contact us via phone or email and a volunteer will set up a time you can meet the pets.
