Foster Friends Program

This is a vital program that truly saves lives. You can foster a mom and her litter until they are old enough for vaccines and altering. You can also foster an animal who needs some quiet time after surgery or treatment.


DNA Testing & Microchipping

Bring them home! The Animal Welfare League offers $30 Microchip and $80 DNA Testing for dogs. Please, call our shelter today to make an appointment.

Awesome workers and helpful volunteers they helped us so much when looking for our new fur baby.

Great shelter. The staff is very nice and attentive. The animals seem happy and the set up is great. We just adopted from there yesterday. Definitely recommend!

Rena Almeida

Great place. I can’t thank them enough for providing me with a sweet little dog named Thumbalina two years ago. She is the sweetest dog ever. I am so thankful for this place.

I absolutely love this place. AWL offers a unique shelter experience for its animals and adopters that has been bettering animal welfare in Charlotte County tremendously.

Up scale shelter. They care about all animals. Cleanliness and sanitary conditions top priority. I am proud to be a volunteer.

I adopted Amadeus last Wednesday and was very impressed with the staff at AWL. They are very caring, and they want the best for each animal. I would definitely adopt from them again or recommend my friends and family to adopt from them!

Dani Lynn

Had the most amazing experience adopting here. Everyone was friendly and we took home the best dog. Would recommend everyone get their forever friend here.
