Our New Building is Now Open!

Thank you to all of our Donors, Sponsors, Volunteers, Staff, and pet-loving community to make this all possible!

Below is the gallery of photos from the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony & Reception held on the evening of June 24th and photos from the Grand Opening Celebration held on the afternoon of June 25th.

Highlights of the Expansion:

Glass-front “cat condos” will face the main “Cat Wing” corridor, allowing for curious cats and kittens to watch humans coming and going. A glassed-in, outside-facing room will provide flexible space for AWA to have kitten incubators and volunteer care stations during peak kitten season to care for the hundreds of orphaned baby kittens that come in during the summer months.

The AWA Shop will showcase pet-related merchandise as well as handmade treats and toys made by pet therapy participants, Special P.A.W.S. and volunteers.

Our store staff will include volunteers from our youth development & employment partnerships who will have the opportunity to learn job skills.

Life for a shelter dog can be extremely stressful.  To help older or more anxious dogs, AWA will have two rooms called “Real Life Rooms” designed to feel like a warm, welcoming living room.

The open Lobby allows us to accommodate our ever-expanding adoption community and allows more space for our programs and events.

The herbs and vegetables in our Kindness Garden will nourish bunnies and enrich treats for our cats & dogs. Our rabbits and other little fluff balls can fully express their bouncy little selves in the fresh air!

PLUS, we can accommodate more people for our amazing programs like Summer Camp, Reading to the Animals, Pet Therapy, and P.A.W.S. Program
