Upcoming Events

Participating in AWS fundraising events helps us fund the care and treatment of pets in our shelter. Without your ongoing generous support, we would be unable to provide our services to homeless pets and our community - services we have provided since 1952.  Please consider making a donation as well. You may donate online on our web site or by mail. For more information about AWS, please see the “About” page..

Adopt a homeless pet

Over 10 MILLION of domestic pets - abandoned, abused and forgotten - are sentenced to death every year! Please adopt a homeless pet and give one a second chance at a happy, loving life.
