Review from Guidestar
December 16, 2013

Three of our pets have come from AWLA - two cats and a dog. They were very careful with the dog adoption - came to our home and evaluated and made suggestions for setting the house up properly and keeping the dog out of mischief. They were always available if I needed additional help. They conduct a lot of public events to try to bring the animals to the attention of potential adopters. The only problem we encountered was that the last cat was not completely spayed at the shelter. She continued to come into heat and required additional surgery to correct it. I was sorry to have to put her through a 2nd surgery unnecessarily.

DO NOT BRING YOUR ANIMAL HERE IF YOU WANT THEM TO GET ADOPTED, YOU'RE BETTER OFF JUST PUTTING THEM TO SLEEP! THE ANIMAL LEAGUE OF ARLINGTON WILL KILL YOUR PET, AS SOON AS THEY LEGALLY CAN!

Please try to find another shelter or just spend the money and have them put to sleep your self, that
way the animal doesn't have to also suffer before they die. I brought in a stray puppy, because of all the good things I heard about AWLA. They said they wouldn’t know if she was adoptable for at least a week and when I called to check on her a little over a week later, they had already put her to sleep. They claimed she was aggressive, but she was the sweetest, most affectionate dog I have ever met, she was just a bit skiddish. The dog was clearly abused by her first owner and she was living in the woods when I found her, Animal Control said they had been trying to catch her for over the month. I assumed this shelter would at least give her a chance. Now I know why they have so few dogs up for adoption. I beg you to find another shelter to donate to and volunteer for, a shelter that's not so eager to kill. I don’t know where the money they receive from donations is going, but I do know it’s not being used to help dogs in the community. Taking a dog to this shelter was one of the worst decisions I've ever made; please don’t make the same mistake!

I love AWLA! I walk dogs as a volunteer for AWLA on a regular basis, and they are a fantastic animal shelter. Every person who works or volunteers there truly love animals, and you always see tons of smiling faces and happy clients whenever you visit the shelter. I donate to AWLA every year, and I look forward to my weekend walks with all of the dogs sheltered there. Keep up the great work, Animal Welfare League of Arlington!
