Best Place To Adopt, Not Shop: League for Animal Welfare

Best Place To Adopt, Not Shop

Rescue organization League for Animal Welfare was established in 1949 by a small group of people concerned about the care of stray and unwanted pets. Today, it finds homes for more than 1,000 animals per year with the help of its trained adoption counselors, who work with potential adopters to match them with the dog or cat most appropriate for their lifestyle and family. The League is entirely no kill and commits itself to reducing the number of homeless cats and dogs while promoting responsible pet care. Its None Left Behind program encourages the adoption of special-needs pets with waived adoption fees, free behavioral consultations with the League’s in-house animal trainer and even provisions for ongoing medical treatments. Find a list of adoptable pets online and stop by during business hours to meet them. League for Animal Welfare, 4193 Taylor Road, Batavia, 513-735-2299, lfaw.org.
