We invite our members and supporters to
donate to these
worthy AWL programs:
Spay/Neuter Clinics - Held
quarterly at four area locations to help pet owners in need to
have their animals sterilized and prevent unwanted puppies and
kittens from being born and ending up as strays or in shelters
Angel Fund - The AWL helps
low-income pet owners in emergency situations whose pets need
immediate veterinary care beyond the owners' abilities to pay.
Education Fund - The AWL provides
"Kind News", a publication of the Humane Society of the U.S., to
grades 1 through 6 in our three area schools. The
publication, which teaches kindness to animals, is used by
teachers to provide various learning experiences for the students
in the form of articles, games, puzzles, and photos.
League also provides books to the schools' libraries and conducts
essay contests for the students.
Your donations to these worthy programs would be much appreciated!
New Recycling Option for the
Recycling volunteers from L-R are:
Patrick McCullough, Jim Weaver, Don Fisher, Mike Frantz
Tenenbaum Recycling Group of Hot
Springs will be handling aluminum beverage can recycling for
AWL. Their yellow drop off bin at the HSV recycling
center on Cloaca Lane can be used when the center is open.
Or...drop off bagged aluminum cans anytime at the
outdoor collection bin located near the shelter driveway exit.
BEVERAGE CANS ONLY at these two drop off
sites. Donated cans pay for care and adoption costs for the
shelter animals. AWL recycled 14,000 lbs. of cans in
2010! That's a lot of dog & cat food and a lot better
for the environment.
