Comments from our Pet Owners

Zoe, previous name unknown

I adopted her 12 years ago! She has changed my life in so many ways! She has her own personality and she is too smart for her own good! We love her so much and couldn’t imagine life without her! She may be 12 but she still has some spunk! Her favorite thing to do is to go check the mail every day with my husband! We look forward to hopefully many more years with her!

Cooper, previous name unknown

We adopted Cooper 2 years ago.   He came from a bad situation and it took a lot of work to get him to come out of his shell  but he is the sweetest boy who loves to camp, hike and just be outside! Everyone at the AWL was so nice and the adoption process was easy,  everything was explained and all my questions answered.  I'm so glad this little man is in our life!

Xena, previously Crissy G

I adopted Xena at 2 months old from AWL, and the adoption process was very smooth and easy to follow. Xena fits right in with our family and is exactly what I was looking for. She loves performing tricks and at 6 months old holds a novice, intermediate, and advanced trick titles through the Do More With Your Dog program.  She is a joy to have and I couldn't be happier that I found her!

Luna, previously Aurora

Luna was the perfect edition to our family! We were looking for a fun, spunky girl whose personality matched our current dog. They are the best of friends and they make our lives complete! Thank you to the AWL staff for the friendly service and making the adoption process quick and easy!
