About the AWL

The Animal Welfare League is a non-profit humane organization committed to animal protection and welfare. We are based in Port Charlotte, Florida. Since 1963, our shelter has served the Charlotte County community by providing a temporary home, medical services and caring attention for thousands of dogs, cats and other animals. They come to us as strays, pets given up by their owners, animals rescued from abuse and neglect, or simply lost pets in need of being re-united with their families.
