Our Adoption Process:

Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne's County (AWL) strives to find the best match for both person/family and for our animals looking for their long time homes. In order to foster or adopt an animal the person or family must submit a short adoption application and speak to staff. In the event the family is in a rental property they will have to have permission to have a pet from their landlord.

Our adoption fees cover AWL's costs of spay and neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, and assist in the continued mission of AWL to save the lives of homeless pets. Dogs are $140, Cats $35, and Small Animals (such as hamsters, etc) are $20.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
