Dear AWLA Family,
July 1st marked the start of AWLA’s new fiscal year. Apart from a clean slate, a new fiscal year serves as a reminder for us, as a shelter, to reflect upon the past twelve months. Needless to say, it’s been quite the ride…
Luckily, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to have you by our side this entire time.
When the pandemic struck, you stepped up to foster animals and helped clear our shelter. When we had to postpone our Walk for the Animals – and then subsequently cancel in-person activities – you graciously donated funds to allow us to continue our life-saving work. And when the community needed a helping hand, you provided the critical supplies that kept our pet pantry fully stocked.
At AWLA, we pride ourselves in being a resource center that helps not just animals, but the people who care for them as well. And now, more than ever, you are making it possible to ensure everyone in our community is cared for.
As we look ahead into the coming year, we anticipate there will be even more challenges to overcome, but we know that you will be with us every step of the way. Because after all these years, and through all the ups and downs, you are the reason AWLA is here today and I hope you take a moment to celebrate the incredible work you helped accomplish.
Thank you for everything you have done, and continue to do, for the animals and people in our community.
Sam Wolbert, President and CEO
