MARVEL: Neutered male kitten. Someone threw mom and the kittens out near a creek in a neighborhood with almost no houses. Luckily, a dog walker found the first kitten in the woods, neighbors found two more kittens, and another neighbor later found the mom. We considered it a miracle that they were found. They were already friendly kittens so they had a home at one time. They now need a permanent loving home where they don't have to worry about being abandoned again.

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. Check out their website at Desoto Dog Park.Video of Dog Park from Air
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.
Hot Springs Village Animal Welfare League has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its sheltering and adoptions.
The Petco Foundation investment will help pay for medical care and sheltering expenses as pets are prepared for a new home. The money will be spent readying Garland County animals for adoptions, H.U.G., veterinary care, food, litter, etc. Those costs are a major outlay that AWL makes as they continue to save lives and find loving homes for these pets. Because AWL is an official No-Kill rescue group, it is saving more animals and the cost is significant.
“These funds enable us to help place more animals for adoption by sponsoring adoption events and paying for veterinary care for special needs animals. We value our long-standing excellent relationship with Petco Foundation and the staff of the Petco stores where we take animals for adoption opportunities. We are honored to receive this grant from the foundation that supports the important work of animal rescue groups nationwide,” said Angela Nickols, AWL spay/neuter director and grant writer.
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 Contact Us. 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 Contact Us 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.
