Learn what it takes to care for thousands of animals each year at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington!

AWLA hosts both virtual and in-person tours for groups of all ages. You’ll meet adoptable animals, shelter staff, and get a behind-the-scenes look at our facility.

Based on group size, tours last between 40 minutes to 1 hour, and can be tailored with lessons based on your group’s education level – whether school-aged kids or adults. Tours are offered Monday through Thursday between 11:00am – 6:00pm for a suggested donation of $25 to $125, dependent on group size. At this time, we cannot schedule in-person or virtual tours on weekends, but we can send you a pre-recorded tour for a suggested donation of $100.
