Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne's County (MD) Wish List

Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County (AWL) is an incorporated, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. AWL is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of homeless animals and serving as a positive presence in the community while providing valuable resources.

The goal of AWL is to achieve a “no-kill”, open-admission shelter. “No-kill” means that all healthy or medically treatable animals, as well as all behaviorally sound animals will have the opportunity to be adopted to a caring home. This is now being achieved in open-admission shelters around the country through innovative and progressive shelter practices.

AWL is committed to not only finding the animals adoptive homes that best fit their physical and emotional needs, but also to providing a shelter environment that allows them to thrive until they are placed. This includes regular and varied exercise and kennel enrichment programs along with socialization and behavior programs.
