Our Mission is to champion the fight for animal welfare by promoting spay/neuter services to reduce pet over population , educating our community, enforcing animal rights, and providing a safe loving environment for all animals in our care until placed in their forever home.
The AWL team is working to make great improvements in the care and housing of all companion animals. We partner with other shelters and rescues all over Indiana (and beyond) to give every pet the best life possible. We never euthanize for space, and strive to find the perfect placement for each animal.
AWL is run entirely by loving, like-minded professionals that help save the lives and care for our community's unwanted pets. Our employees and board of directors strive for zero tolerance of ending the lives of savable pets. To date AWL operates at a 91% save rate which meets our goal to maintain a no kill status.
We thank you all for your help and support!
Your donations not only help us provide a comfortable stay for animals at the AWL, it also allows us to seek the greatest level of vet care.
No refunds on donations made to AWL.
We screen all potential adopters to make sure the animal is a good fit for your household. Apply before you visit to avoid waiting to take home your new pet.
Fostering teaches animals important skills to be a great pet! Consider being a bottle feeder for orphaned kittens or giving a place for our seniors to call home.
Our volunteers walk dogs, socialize cats, wash dishes, and do the laundry! We also host several events throughout the year and love when we get volunteers!

When you choose the Pet Friendly Plate, you’re helping over 300 rescues and shelters statewide get free spay/neuter surgeries for cats and dogs. This addresses the root cause of pet overpopulation and saves adoptable animals from euthanasia.
Together, we can make Indiana a zero kill state!
