The Hot Springs Village Animal Welfare League (HSVAWL) is in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue organization that works cooperatively with the Hot Springs Village Property Owners Association (POA) Animal Control to rescue, vet, and find homes for ALL adoptable cats and dogs that come through POA intake.
AWL has no paid employees and is appreciative of the hard work by the POA animal control officers, who provide valuable service to all animals. AWL pays for food, veterinary expenses and litter for all animals in the shelter building, including strays and lost pets reclaimed by owners, as well as those for adoption.
We depend solely upon donations, memberships, and grants to sustain our programs. We are not subsidized by the POA nor government entities.
All donations are tax deductible, and 100% of your donation directly supports the animals. The AWL expresses gratitude to the volunteers who make these benefits happen and to those guests who support their efforts to save the animals.
Because of the resurgence of COVID-19 infections with the Delta variant,
the AWL has decided to postpone Girls Gotta Howl until 2022.
AWL truly appreciates the interest so many have shown in this event and
the fun you have had. We appreciate your understanding and
look forward to a raucous Girls Gotta Howl in 2022!
Thank you again for your support for homeless pets.
Dog and cat vaccines and testing will be FREE to Saline Co. residents at the clinic even if pets have already been sterilized. This service is made possible by the Saline County Quorum Court using funds received from checking the "Animal Control" box on your annual tax bill.
Please call Dorothy at 501-226-5772 to make an appointment or for info.
The AWL will use this extremely generous grant to take care
of the cats and dogs that come into our care. We are very grateful to this donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
The DJ & T foundation, established by well-known television personality Bob Barker, is devoted to the support of low cost spay/neuter clinics. The grant is to be used for canines in our spay/neuter program.
Once again, AWL received a generous 2021 grant of $15,000 from Saline County to be used on spay/neuter of Saline County pets.
In their 2020 Mutts Across America campaign, AWL was honored as the Arkansas recipient of this grant based on the following selection criteria:
Thank you to the Arkansas Community Foundation who gave the AWL two grants in the spring of 2020. Our Education Program received $500, and our Spay/Neuter Program received $1,500.
Thank you to The Blue & You Foundation, funded by Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, for providing a grant to purchase an AED (automatic defibrillator) for the shelter.
Special thanks to the Cedar Mountain Club, part of the Boys and Girls Club of Saline County, for initiating the Love The Animals Pet Supply Drive. Program Director Jessica Snowden said the drive was part of their community service project, and said, “Our children love to give back and we try and give them every opportunity that we can to do that.” The group of boys and girls, ranging in age from 11-13, all unanimously picked the AWL for this special project, and we are grateful for their hard work and support! We also thank KVRE radio station for serving as a donation drop-off center.
Linda Poe, cookbook committee chair, presents the generous check to the AWL's Shelley Shepherd and Susan Luse. She is joined by DeSoto Women's Club members Karen Feckler (left rear), Becky Tetu (in Santa hat), and Marie Hylden (holding cookbook). The cookbooks, comprised of DeSoto Women's Club members favorite recipes, are still available for $10 and 50% of the proceeds will continue to benefit the AWL!
