The AWLFC was established as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization in 2001. What began as a grassroots group of concerned animal lovers has grown into the county’s largest all-volunteer, no-kill animal rescue an

d welfare organization. In October 2009, the AWLFC opened our first adoption center and office at 1202 East Patrick Street, Suite 13A, in Frederick, MD. This office serves as the headquarters for all AWLFC activities, including cat and dog adoptions, our monthly spay/neuter clinic, education and training sessions, and fund-raising events. Founded on the philosophy that every animal deserves a loving home, and that euthanasia is neither an acceptable nor humane form of managing animal populations, the AWLFC has four core programs designed to reduce pet homelessness and euthanasia rates in the region. In collaboration with local shelters, other rescue organizations, and concerned citizens, the AWLFC provides foster care for cats and dogs and then places them in a permanent home via our adoption process. Working with property owners and concerned citizens, the AWLFC coordinates the only formal Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) program in Frederick County, Fixing Frederick’s Felines (FFF). TNR involves the humane trapping of feral and free-roaming cats, sterilization, and vaccination, followed by release back to a committed care-giver who provides food, shelter, and necessary medical care. TNR is the only humane way to manage feral and free-roaming cat populations. The AWLFC offers a monthly spay/neuter clinic designed to help low-income families and individuals access affordable spay/neuter and vaccinations for their pets. In addition to the monthly clinic, AWLFC provides financial assistance to pet owners who need help getting needed veterinary treatment for their cat or dog. AWLFC subsidizes both the monthly spay/neuter clinic and financial assistance for people facing financial hardship. The Friends Helping Felines (FHF) Program was created to help give people the means to spay and neuter homeless cats and kittens and place them in forever homes at those times when the Animal Welfare League's foster program is filled to capacity. FHF participants will have access to reduced rates for routine veterinary care, including spay or neuter and rabies vaccination. And, AWLFC helps people get the cats adopted into forever homes.

🌈 Snuffle mats are back in stock! 🐾

What is a snuffle mat you say? It is an interactive “puzzle” toy for dogs and cats. You can hide your fur baby’s favorite treats or small toys within the fleece and they have to sniff them out! Great for catnip too!

Lovingly made and generously donated by one of our crafty volunteers. Finished size is about 14x15 inches - $12/each. Come by this weekend, 12-4pm Saturday and Sunday to pick one up!

Our newest intake - 1 of 3 newborns found with a deceased momma. All 3 were very cold but have been warmed up and are yelling to be fed, which is a good sign. They could use some good thoughts.

🐾 The kittens that were rescued from an old shed last Friday just got fresh baths and are headed to their foster home today! They had some GI issues that have resolved and they are now eating well, so we are pairing them up with a single kitten that needs some playmates.

All three of these kids are girls. They will eventually be available for adoption, but a lot of growing and all vet work needs to be done first.

It’s officially raining kittens! ☔️ 🐈‍⬛

Meet our newest mom and her 5 babies! They are approximately five weeks old and the whole family is settling into their new foster home. Mom is very friendly and takes such good care of her little ones. They will eventually be available for adoption, but not for quite some time.

Meet Frank! 💕

Available for meet and greets Saturday and Sunday, 12-4pm!

💕 Frank is a lover. Frank will shove his head into your hand desperate for pets, and stand on your chest to greet you in the morning 🌄. When you’re ready to watch TV in the evening Frank is right there, ready to sprawl across your lap. His quiet, contented, rumbly purr when he feels safe with his humans is the absolute best dopamine hit.

Usually chill, the only time Frank gets riled up is when he is hangry. Frank is social by nature and wants to boop noses and sniff booties with his furry housemates. Even though he is social, Frank enjoys having his own spaces where he can recharge his batteries 🔋.

Frank is alert, curious, and fun-loving.
-Laser pointers and wand play? Yes, please!
-Is he going to figure out how to break into the cat treats? For sure!
-Does he enjoy a catnip mouse 🐁? Who doesn’t!

Get your lap ready, here comes your new best friend, Frank!

⭐️ Other info: Frank is 9yo and has been working on losing weight for his health. He currently lives with humans (big and small), kittens, and another cat. Frank likes kitten energy. Keep in mind that Frank has Big Cat Energy and wouldn't pair well with a timid companion. He is a bit sus of small humans. Help Frank adjust to your home by *slowly* introducing him to each member of your family and he'll become everyone's favorite feline. 😍

Text his foster momma, Icie, at (224) 688-8184 for more information.

📢 Queenie and Lady will be at our adoption center this Saturday, April 13th from 12-2pm! 🐾

👑 Queenie and Lady were rescued outside in early January and weighed less than 2 pounds each. They were underweight from living outside as such small kittens, but are doing great now and love to eat. They are estimated to be around 6 months old.

Queenie is the more outgoing of the two. She is a short hair black and white kitten with silky soft fur. She is absolutely obsessed with spring toys and loves to follow them anywhere she can fit. She loves attention and purrs easily. She likes to sleep next to her humans at night.

Lady is shyer and tends to watch Queenie until she is comfortable. She is a petite short hair brown tabby and white with a slight kink at the end of her tail. It was likely broken when very young and has healed that way. She loves to be brushed and enjoys sitting on laps. She really likes toy mice and wand toys. She makes the cutest growl when she eats. Queenie eats faster and tends to take her food.

Queenie and Lady would do best if adopted together. They have been fostered in a home with older resident cats and dogs. It would be better if they were adopted into a quieter home without young children.

Queenie and Lady are spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. Foster mom can be reached at [email protected]

🐈‍⬛ Introducing Alfie & Annie (4 months old) 🐈

ALFIE

Alfie is a striking classic red (orange) tabby. He has the most beautiful coloring and a personality to match. He LOVES to play but watches where his person is and prefers to play wherever they are. Toy mice are his favorites and he will throw them all over the room and chase them and throw them again. He’s the most fun boy.

He does love a good lap once play has exhausted him though and he’s super cuddly at bed time.

Alfie is used to cat siblings so will need to be adopted with his sister Annie or into a home with an existing cat. He’s fine with kind dogs and would do great with young kids.

Alfie is neutered, microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations.

ANNIE

Annie is the sweetest petite, brown tabby with the biggest loving eyes. She looks at you as if she wants to respond when you talk to her and is oh so observant. She loves being part of the action but prefers to watch at first and will jump in the fun once she knows all the players. She is super calm and chill and will make an awesome companion to another cat.

Annie is part of a litter and used to cat siblings so she should be adopted either with her brother, Alfie, or into a home with an existing, calm cat.

She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.
