Hot Springs Village Animal Welfare League has been activated as a No More Homeless Pets Network Partner! Best Friends created the No More Homeless Pets Network (NMHP Network) to work with rescue organizations and shelters around the country that are reducing euthanasia rates and saving lives in their communities. Click here to see a summary of our organization's statistics and an overall save rate for the reporting period.
The Animal Welfare League sends heartfelt thanks to those who had faith it would not rain on us (it did not!) and came out for our Strut Your Mutt and Virtual Cat event Saturday, May 16th. We extend special appreciation to Doug McPherson, AKA Campfire Doug, who provided music, and to Barkansas Pet Supply who was there to provide nutrition information and food samples. We also thank the many active AWL volunteers who helped organize the fun event. In addition, thanks to the Voice, KVRE, and the POA for their help in publicizing the walk, as they always do for our fund raising events.
All proceeds go to fund the expenses we incur to rescue and adopt loving companion animals, provide low-cost spay/neuter clinics, education, and other outreach efforts of the League. The AWL sincerely values all of the generous support we receive from Villagers and local businesses to accomplish our ongoing mission.
We will have a garage sale benefiting AWL in the Fall. Start gathering items that can be converted into cash for Adoption Center operations. Don't bring them to the Adoption Center because we don't have room, but set them aside. Watch for more details.
One of our new Directors, Sheila Cosby, is super talented and will donate her time and talent to creating something lovely and useful: gorgeous baby blankets and outfits. She will give all proceeds to AWL! What a windfall for AWL because these are amazing creations. You can get an idea from the photo that these lovely knitted baby blankets and outfits are a real bargain. Buy or order some for your children, grandkids, great nieces or nephews, or children of friends. They are guaranteed to be a hit with everyone, especially the parents. For information, email Sheila Cosby.
We sold so many initially that we had to place a second order. At $10 a book, they are a bargain and make fun family gifts. Be ready to buy a bunch! Order your cookbooks by calling Sarah Yerkes at 915-8982 or emailing Sarah. We will also have cookbooks at all member meetings while quantities last.

The Lily Alert is named for the standard poodle, Lily, who was lost and missing for several weeks before being found, due in part to many efforts by AWL members. The Lily Alert was initiated to step up the efforts to locate missing pets.
If a pet is missing, immediately call animal control at 922-6547. To expand the coverage, call the AWL at 915-9337 and ask to participate in the Lily Alert program. The volunteer on duty will instruct the pet owner as to the procedures involved. Or, email a photo, description, and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once initiated, the pet's description and contact information will go out to AWL membership by E-blast and website. Pet registration with the POA will increase the potential for a happy ending!
To be included in Lily Alert emails, send your email address to Membership and we will add you to the list.
LOST pets: Contact POA Animal Control at 922-6547, and then call the Animal Welfare League at 915-9337 for additional help finding your pet. We will help you publicize the pet in the Village and give you other tips on finding your pet.
FOUND pets: These pets are admitted to Animal Control or rescued through other community sources and may be someone's lost pets. Their photos are posted, so please contact Animal Control if you may be the owner or have information that may help reunite a pet with its owner: 922-6547.
Photos are posted in the Animal Welfare League's Lost and Found Album.

The mission of the Desoto Dog Park is to establish a gated, off-leash dog park for well behaved dogs to exercise in a clean, safe environment. In 2012, the Hot Springs Village Friends of the Dog Park was established to create this park and include volunteers from existing property owners, POA board members, and dog lovers.
