Lost Pets and Lily Alerts

Contact POA Animal Control at 922-6547, and for additional help finding your pet, send information for a Lily Alert - see below. We will help you publicize the pet in the Village and give you other tips on finding your pet.

If a pet is missing, immediately call Animal Control at 922-6547. To expand the coverage, call AWL at 915-9337 and ask to participate in the Lily Alert program. The volunteer on duty will instruct the pet owner as to the procedures involved. Or, email a photo, description, and contact information to lilyalert@hsvawl.org. Once initiated, the pet's description and contact information will go out to those receiving the alerts.

To be included in Lily Alert email list, send your email address and we will add you to the list lilyalert@hsvawl.org.

Stray or Found Pets

These pets are admitted to Animal Control or rescued through other community sources and may be someone's lost pets. Their photos are posted on the HSV Police Department Facebook page, so please contact Animal Control if you may be the owner or have information that may help reunite a pet with its owner: 922-6547.

Stray or found cats and dogs should be reported directly by a resident to POA Animal Control at 922-6547, not by someone else with second-hand information. If an animal needs to be trapped, Animal Control has to obtain the homeowners' permission to set a trap on their property. AWL strongly recommends that those concerned about pets roaming on or near their property, first try to see whether the pet belongs to a neighbor before calling Animal Control.

"No Fleas" Flea Market Again a Success

On Saturday, April 21st, supporters, donors, friends, and volunteers of the Animal Welfare League helped raise more than $2,345.00 at our spring “No Fleas” Flea Market. Now in its third year, the popular event “has been continually growing,” according to Beverly Fitzpatrick, AWL Board of Directors Treasurer. “For the first time, we had enough space to display all the merchandise that was donated to the sale.” Thanks to the Hot Springs Village Police Department, the AWL was able to use both the indoor space and exterior areas of the Police Training and Event Center at 301 Balearic Road.

The event attracted bargain hunters seeking all types of merchandise, and they weren’t disappointed. Besides several tables of items for pet owners, there were crafts by artists, homemade baked goods, collectibles, holiday décor, ladies’ accessories, and housewares.

Also, a first for the flea market was a partnership with WoofTrax Shoes for Shelters and Rescues whereby AWL collected donations of pairs of new or gently used shoes. The partnership is good for all because the donated shoes will not only bring AWL needed funds, but will be repurposed to help needy families and the environment by keeping the shoes out of landfills.

Special thanks to Co-Chairs Chari Larimore and Judy Sierocuk and their team of dedicated volunteers, and to all the donors and shoppers who made this a successful event.

Please continue to save unwanted, slightly used household items to donate for the next “No Fleas” Flea Market on Saturday, October 13th.
