All Cat Adoption Fees Waived Until August 18th

The Vola Lawson Animal Shelter has an overwhelming number of cats. In an effort to make room for incoming cats that need refuge, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is waiving the $120 adoption fee for all adult cats during the End-of-Summer Adoption Special, beginning Saturday, August 10th and ending Sunday, August 18th.

All adoptable cats are current on all basic vaccinations, have received health screenings, and have been micro-chipped. Most importantly, all cats have been spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted litters and to curb animal homelessness. The AWLA takes great pride in pairing the right companion animals with right adopter. Staff members are available to answer questions, offer advice, and provide consultations and support.

Megan Webb, Executive Director of the AWLA, says, “We need the public’s help adopting and fostering the cats currently residing in our shelter so that we can continue to help the many cats that are brought to us every day.” While some local shelters are turning away cats, the AWLA continues to accept cats and kittens from Alexandria and neighboring jurisdictions.

All of the AWLA’s adoptable cats can be found online at For more information about the AWLA, the Vola Lawson Animals Shelter, hours and directions, and the End-of-Summer Adoption Special, please visit the League’s website at or call 703.746.4774.
