About the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County
We are an award-winning, 501(c)3 non-profit organization fully devoted to the wellbeing of homeless pets. What truly separates the AWL, is we promise that any animal that enters our doors and any animal that can be made adoptable through veterinary care and/or training will have a roof over their head, food, enrichment, and the love of our staff and volunteers for as long as it takes for each and every one to find their new home.
Please stop by our shelter and meet our homeless pets! We are open from 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday and 10 am to 7 pm on Thursday and Friday.
Advocate animal protection and welfare.

To achieve our vision and accomplish our mission, our goals are:
- Protect, care for, and nurture homeless and abused animals
- Help eradicate the need for euthanasia of adoptable dogs and cats
- Promote responsible pet ownership
