Animal Welfare League of Arlington VA, Inc.
May 5, 2013

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!
