We believe that everyone deserves the love of a pet. Our primary focus is to assist community residents in caring for their pets and increase awareness of local laws.

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington holds a contract with the county for Animal Control Services. Our officers respond to calls from the community regarding pets and wildlife, investigate cases involving animal bites, abuse or neglected, sick or injured animals, and more.
