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

Due to rising COVID cases in our area, we are not scheduling tours at this time. Please check back later!

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.
