AWL Programs

Spay/Neuter

Our mission is to reduce the number of unwanted puppies and kittens that ultimately end up in shelters or as strays. 


The AWL operates four low-cost two-day clinics a year for low-income pet owners in communities surrounding Hot Springs Village. We also use a voucher system to send clients to two local veterinarians during the times the mobile clinics are not operating.

Help Us Go (H.U.G)

The HUG program is road trips for dogs. Some of the dogs that come into our care are the larger ones that have a hard time finding families because the are young, energetic, and well, they are large! Smaller dogs are in great demand in the village but it's rare that people call us looking for a large dog.  We get them ready for transport to an area where adopters for large dogs are plentiful. We have great relationships with partner rescues to ensure that our dogs find their forever families.  The program pays for costs to satisfy transport requirements. 

Education

As part of the AWL mission to increase awareness of animal issues through education programs, AWL funds Kind News, a publication promoting humane treatment of all animals and appreciation of our environment. All elementary students in three area school districts receive their very own copies of the magazine.  Award-winning materials are provided to three area school district elementary libraries as well.. Donate to Adopt-a-Class help fund all education activities.

Do you have a pet that you need to rehome?  Adopt-A-Pet has a free service with advice to help you do that on your own. It may take a little time, but it is far better for the pet than to “dump” it somewhere or have a stranger you know nothing about take your pet. The pet stays with you until you find an adopter you can check out, so it never goes to a shelter or becomes a burden on animal rescue groups. Follow the steps in the outline to take advantage of the free service. Click the image above to find our more.

Stray or Found Pets

Found a stray animal?

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: 501-922-6547.


Stray or found cats and dogs should be reported directly by a resident to POA Animal Control at 501-922-6547, not by someone else with second-hand information. If an animal needs to be trapped, Animal Control must 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.
