Welcome to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria

Humane Education

Every year, hundreds of young animal lovers learn more about the the animals in our homes and backyards through the League's Humane Education Program. Schools, civic clubs, scout troops, summer campers and other area youth benefit from the AWLA's experienced staff and friendly residents. Shelter tours, after-school activities and birthday “pawties” are all designed to educate as well as entertain. Often very fun and cuddly, AWLA residents also have important lessons to teach about commitment, care and compassion - to students of all ages.
