Spay and Neuter Program

We all must work together to deal with overpopulation of cats and dogs because there simply are not enough homes. AWL's #1 priority is to relieve needless suffering and cruelty to animals due to overpopulation with our spay/neuter program. Since 1965 we have raised funds to subsidize the costs of spaying/neutering homeless, feral, fostered, and newly-adopted animal.
