Upcoming AWL Events

Puttin' on the Dog... & Cat!

AWL’s large and small events are fundraisers that not only gather funds to help save homeless pets in our No-Kill efforts, but they raise awareness of the challenges that AWL meets daily as we rescue and adopt these pets. Be a volunteer in creating a fundraiser or attend our fun-fundraisers to enjoy a good time for a grand purpose.

Saturday, October 5 - 8:00 am - 1:00 pm - Coronado Community

"No Fleas" Flea Market NOTE Venue Change!

Set aside Friday, October 4 from 5:00-7:00 to bring your donated items to the Coronado Center.  Be sure to pre-price them too!  The sale is Saturday from 8:00-1:00.  Your donations of household items, seasonal decorations, small furniture (that can be carried out), nick-knacks, jewelry, and sporting goods (no clothing) yield good profits that help fund the care of the pets!

Recurring AWL Events

"No Fleas" Flea Market


In spring and fall, “No Fleas” is a chance for shoppers to find new treasures and for supporters to donate household items for someone else to enjoy. These sales net a substantial amount for AWL and provide a service to the community.

Girls Gotta Howl


This raucous girl’s night out happens every other year, and has gathered loyal followers because of the night’s entertainment and dinner. Catered food, wine fountain, a bit of shopping, style show, and the highlight – a performance by our very own “Cheapendales” dancers.

Puttin' on the Dog. . . & Cat


AWL’s largest fundraiser is held every other year, and has been a repeat success through the years. Participants enjoy a gala evening with dinner and hundreds of auction items to review. A raffle is one of the highlights of the evening with superb prizes available.  It is basically a flashy evening for all.

Special Events


Often AWL sponsors miscellaneous special events, such as dog walks/shows, charity days at local businesses, adoption events, or other fun events that are not recurring, and from which AWL receives support.
