We Appreciate these Kind Words

Dear AWL Volunteers,

For five years I have had the great pleasure of working with the volunteers who make AWL the fantastic organization it is.  I have performed many spays and neuters on your foster cats and dogs, administered thousands of vaccinations, diagnosed and treated hundreds of sick animals and provided a monthly low-cost spay and neuter clinic, funded and organized by AWL.  Over these five years I have had the opportunity to personally meet many of you who volunteer large amounts of time and energy to help the cats and dogs of Frederick County.  And let me just say simply that I am constantly amazed at your level of dedication, passion and expertise that you devote to these animals.

Working with the AWL is truly one of the highlights of my job!  I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your service.  I have seen foster parents work tirelessly to make a sick animal well, rearrange their house and their life to accommodate the special needs of a foster, and I have seen the attention and detail you provide when caring for the cats, both in your homes and at East Gate.  You never cut corners, take the easy road or allow your standard to fall.  This is the secret to your successful adoption program.  I believe that it is you who volunteer to take responsibility for these animals that have been abandoned that do the difficult work.  The volunteers that organize and staff the spay neuter clinics are amazing as well.  You perform so many different jobs with ease and grace– receptionists, surgery technicians, secretaries and administrators!  I know it is not easy, but with your help those clinics go so smoothly every month and I look forward to them!

I appreciate all that each of you volunteers do for the animals, and for me.  It is a great honor to work with you. You are each wonderful individuals who together make a phenomenal organization that truly does bring positive change to Frederick County.

Barn Cats Available!

Ideal residents for barns or stables

Healthy, sterilized cats need homes! These cats are in need of a home at a farm, horse stable, or other suitable outdoor environment with shelter.

All the cats have been sterilized and vaccinated against rabies and now need an outdoor home where they can live out their lives.

Caretaker responsibilities include providing daily food and water, protection from the elements and long-term veterinary care.

Be prepared for a brief period of adjustment. Moving to a new home is stressful for anyone, cats included! After a short stay in secure confi nement, the cats will accept their new home and be chasing mice out of your grain with enthusiasm.

Guidance and help will be provided during relocation process.

If you would like to adopt a cat(s), please contact us at 301.663.5855 or Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
