    End-of-Summer Adoption Special
    The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is waving goodbye to summer by waiving adoption fees for all adult cats at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter. Starting Saturday, August, 10th, adopters can ride off into the sunset with a tabby, a tortie, a Siamese, or a Persian. The End-of-Summer Adoption Special comes at a critical time, as the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter nears capacity for caring for homeless cats. The End-of-Summer Adoption Special ends Sunday, August 18th, and the AWLA encourages adopters to make a donation to help care for the new cats entering the shelter every day. Summer’s warmth doesn’t have to fade away, just put a cat in your lap!
