We’re so glad you found us.

And now that you have, we hope you will take a few minutes to discover all the wonderful services, programs and events that we offer to benefit the animals of our area. Or, perhaps you’ll find a lifelong companion that you can adopt.

Founded in 1969, the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County (AWL) has worked to protect the unwanted, neglected, abandoned, sick, injured and abused animals of Trumbull County.

We are not your typical animal shelter. Beyond simply providing a safe haven for the animals who need us, we are working hard to tackle the root causes of animal abuse/neglect and provide effective solutions. Services, such as our, Pet Awareness Classes (PAC) promote education to children and adults on responsible pet ownership.  Humane Investigation services are provided to the Trumbull County area to respond to concerns of neglected or abused animals. Adoption services provides a second chance to a better life for abused, injured, or abandoned animals. Our work is made possible through generosity of caring people like you. We receive no public funding.

Our Mission: “Rescue, Rehabilitation, Adopt, and Education”

How We Are Funded? We are a 501 (C) 3 charity as determined by the IRS. We receive no public funding but, rather, exist solely as the result of the generosity of our supporters, contributors and our many volunteers who organize and help at our fund-raisers. We are not affiliated with any national organization, so we do not receive any funds from organizations such as The Humane Society, ASPCA, etc. Tax-deductible monetary contributions are always appreciated, as are supplies that are routinely used at the shelter for the care of the thousands of stray, abandoned and abused animals who come through our doors each year. Check out our WISH LIST (make this a hyperlink to the wish list which will be under donate page) for a complete listing of needed supplies.

Thank you for your continued support. Without you, we could not continue to exist.
