On Saturday, May 7, 2016, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington will host the Annual Walk for the Animals at Bluemont Park in Arlington. This event brings together hundreds of local animal lovers and their canine companions for a walk to benefit AWLA shelter animals and support the services and programs that the League provides to the community.

Since the beginning, this event has raised life-saving funds that have provided critical medical care, food, shelter, training and adoption services for tens of thousands of League animals.
Your participation directly supports the League’s mission – to improve the lives of animals – and enriches the lives of all shelter animals as they await adoption and their forever homes.
Your generosity educates members of our community about responsible pet ownership and supports services like our low-cost spay/neuter voucher program, monthly rabies and microchip clinics, and emergency veterinary assistance loans so that our neighbors can provide their pets with long, healthy and happy lives.

Please support the AWLA Walk for the Animals so that together we can reach our fundraising goal of $100,000 and continue to provide professional and compassionate care for the animals entrusted to us and the people who adopt them.

All pre-registered walkers receive a Walk T-shirt and participating dogs get a Walk bandana.

Demonstrate your devotion to animal welfare with every step you take! Register today at www.awla.org!
