Success! Thanks for posting your review of Animal Welfare League. You’ve done the world some good today.


This is a terrible place. My missing cat was brought to this place last Sunday. I went there on the same day after knowing this information. Their system showed my cat was in cage 44, but my cat was not there. Afterwards, they spoke with their supervisor, and then gave me another explanation: they hold each stray cat for 4 days (my cat was sent in on Sunday and I went on Thursday, exact four days) and then send my ca... view more

My two precious kitties were taken from me by the village because there was an electrical fire at my house and given to AWL. I had two weeks, I was told, to redeem them, but they were adopted out before the two weeks was up, I did call on June 9th and was told that they were being treated for some sort of respiratory infection; I called on June 10th and was advised by a staffer that they were already gone. I coul... view more

STAY AWAY from this place!! Dont listen to any of the other reviews. They treat animals very bad.

Got my Puggle there

i adopted my puggle, Bugsy here and they really stood behind him. he had cherry eye and they did his surgery at no cost to me. I payed only $50.00 for him which encluded all his shots. he has turned out to be the sweestest dog ever and my grandson's best friend. They have ALOT of animals that need homes and really do a very good job considering how many animals they have.

Horrible experience

This is the worst animal shelter you can go to. My dog was hit by a car and it took me two weeks of going to the shelter every other day and leaving flyers to find out he died on the spot. He had his collar on him and noone even bothered to notify me about his death. I spent two weeks searching for him, until finally I went back into the shelter and this assistant had the nerve to tell me that they had called me ... view more
