Medical Rehabilitation Fund

This program was created to give ill or injured animals the medicine or surgery required to save their lives. Animals are pulled from local shelters that are in need of medical care, that the shelters cannot provide. Animals requiring medical care prior to adoption will be rehabilitated in a loving foster home.

Foster Care Program

Animals needing a temporary home while awaiting a rescue transport, undergoing a treatable medical issue or simply too young to be adopted, will be placed in a loving foster home.
Foster families are vital in saving lives for adoptable animals by providing them a temporary shelter until they find their forever home. Please consider opening your home as a foster retreat. Your gift of time and compassion is priceless to homeless animals.
The foster program will provide all the supplies needed to welcome your new foster pet into your home.

Education Program
Animal Care Education (ACE), was formed in 2015. Several local organizations formed ACE, including; Animal League of Washington County, Humane Society of the Ozarks, For Pets Sake, and Spay Arkansas. ACE provides information seminars to school aged children in Northwest Arkansas. The importance of spaying/neutering and the humane treatment of animals starts with early education.

If your civic group or school is interested in a Humane Education presentation, please contact us at 479.263.7058.

Hungry Hearts Pet Food Bank

Hungry Hearts Pet Food Bank was formed to help Washington County pets in a time of need. If someone owns one pet or numerous, we understand that there are times when the basic necessities can be difficult to provide. ALWC will help those pets in need, by providing a coupon for a free bag of food from Nestle Purina.

Please call 479.263.7058 for additional information.

Rescue/Transport Program
This program is vital in saving dog’s lives. We select dogs from local shelters that meet certain criteria and we place them in out of state rescues and adoptive homes. We transport dogs approximately every ten days. Many volunteers help with this program by short term fostering a dog while awaiting transport, prepping the van with crates, or helping to clean and sanitize the van and crates after transport.
