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 throughout the year.
More than 7,750 cats and dogs have been sterilized to date!
We are in our 14th year of hosting the mobile clinics and the volume of animals at the clinics never seems to slow down. Many of you have been volunteering all these years and your dedication and enthusiasm for this program is truly impressive, as is the support of the AWL Board.
At our Fountain Lake Clinic in September, 84 animals were spayed and neutered. Thank you to all our volunteers!
Upcoming 2021 Spay Neuter Clinics
Nov. 1, 2 & 3 at Paron Community Center
Note: Dog and cat vaccines and testing will be FREE to Saline County 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.
(Please note all COVID mandates in place will be observed.)
There are four, two-day clinics held annually at four area locations in partnership with Dr. Joanna McManus, DVM and Ozark Mountain Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic, a mobile clinic to help pet owners in need with low-cost sterilization for their pets.
For more information or to volunteer, call Angela at 501-915-0832.
