Furloughed Felines!

Furloughed Felines


The Vola Lawson Animal Shelter continues to be open during the furlough and we are getting lots and lots of cats in who need homes.  We are waving fees on all cat adoptions from October 14 to October 20th. If you have been furloughed, this may be the perfect time to add a cat to your life. And, if you haven't been furloughed, you can still take home a cat for no fees!


All adoptable cats are current on all basic vaccinations, have received health screenings, and have been microchipped. Most importantly, all cats have been spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted litters and to curb animal homelessness. The AWLA takes great pride in pairing the right companion animals with right adopter. Staff members are available to answer questions, offer advice, and provide consultations and support. Visit us today!
