Adoption Process Overview

Step 1: Review the animals here on our website and their suitability criteria before choosing which animal/s you are interested in. These are the only animals currently available for adoption but more do get added daily. Please note we no longer do walk throughs of cats or dogs in order to provide a calmer environment for them.

Step 2: Please ensure you take note of where an animal is located and their specific adoption process before visiting either of our locations. Some of our dogs and cats are listed as by application only - this means you must fill out and submit the application form on the animal's profile. If your application is successful you will be contacted by an AWL staff member and proceed to the next steps of your adoption journey. You will not be able to meet an Adopt by Application animal unless your application has been successful.
