The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is waving goodbye to summer by waiving adoption fees for all adult cats at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter happening now through Saturday, August, 18, during normal shelter hours! Adopters can ride off into the sunset with a tabby, a tortie, a Siamese, or a Persian. Adopters are encouraged to make a donation to help care for the new cats entering the shelter every day.

All standard application processes and screening procedures remain in place, and AWLA staff will continue to educate adopters on the responsibilities and requirements of caring for a pet.

WHEN? Saturday, August 10th through Sunday, August 18th, 2013 during normal shelter hours. The shelter is located at Vola Lawson Animal Shelter 4101 Eisenhower Avenue Alexandria, VA 22304.

The End-of-Summer Adoption Special comes at a critical time, as the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter nears capacity for caring for homeless cats. Summer’s warmth doesn’t have to fade away, just put a cat in your lap!
