Love animals but can't adopt?

Would volunteer, but obligations just make it impossible?


Do the Next Best Thing... Become an Animal Welfare Society Sponsor!


The Animal Welfare Society Shelter is a unique haven for abandoned animals largely because of the kindness and devotion of our numerous volunteers and financial supporters. As the demand for space in our shelter rises so does our need for caring individuals.


AWS has some special-needs animals. These include older cats and dogs, dogs and cats with health problems and animals with personality or behavioral problems. Every animal at the shelter is available for adoption to the right home; however, a few are harder to place and some may never find homes. The Animal Welfare Society Pet Sponsorship Program is designed to help us give special care to these "special-needs animals” and to help support the rest of our animals until they find the right homes.
