Shelter Wish List

Looking for other ways to support the League and Alexandria’s homeless animals? The Vola Lawson Animal Shelter is always in need of supplies and materials. Providing shelter, care, and enrichment for thousands of animals every year is no easy task, but donations of items from our Shelter Wish List help us meet every animal’s needs.

Please consider donating them to another shelter or rescue.  Thank you!



Animeals – Partnership

We partner with Senior Services of Alexandria to provide donated items that we can not use for our shelter animals to senior citizens in our community who have animals and need assistance with their supplies. Many of these seniors participate in the Meals on Wheels Program.
