We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue organization which works in conjunction with the HSV Property Owners Association Animal Shelter. Our mission is to place all rescued/surrendered adoptable companion animals into loving homes and to prevent the overpopulation of unwanted animals.
Since POA Animal Control can only take in animals from within the Village boundaries, HSVAWL will occasionally help with animals in need from the community surrounding Hot Springs Village. This might include strays located at the east or west gates, feral cats with kittens, animals from our veterinarians, or other special situations. Community animals are treated the same as those coming from Animal Control where HSVAWL gets them ready for adoption and finds them loving homes.
The memorial fund is to honor a special person or pet (living or deceased). The honored person/pet or their family is notified of the donation if an address is provided. For memorials of $50 or more, a digital plaque with the named person/pet is included on the HSVAWL Adoption Center memorial display.
You walk your dog anyway. Now every time you walk your dog (or a virtual dog), the Best Friends Animal Network will donate to the HSVAWL. Treadmills don't count.

Printer Cartridges: Bring any empty ink or toner cartridge to the adoption center for recycle. We will sort through them and take them to be recycled. Money received is donated to HSV AWL.
Sheila Cosby, one of HSVAWL’s former Board members, began her Doggone Baby Blankets a few years ago, donating all proceeds to AWL... thus far equaling over $1,600!
She can create any color blanket desired and has lots of design options.
