Pets of the Month

Since March 17, the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria has been operating by appointment only to prevent large groups of people gathering at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter. This may change depending on what is recommended as safest for our staff, volunteers and the community, so you can find our current status or set up an appointment at or by emailing

Doll, Adult, Spayed Female, Brown Shorthaired Rabbit

Doll might look like your average bun, but she’s actually one extraordinary gal! Doll is sweet to the core. She loves lap time, greeting new friends and always wants to hang with her people. She rushes to the front of her pen for pets and cuddles and just wants to be near you. Sweetest bun in town? We think so!

Sammy, Adult, Spayed Female, Grey Tabby with White Domestic Shorthair

Sammy is one beautiful feline, but you might never know it. As a cave bed connoisseur, Sammy spends most of her time testing various dome, cave, cocoon and tent beds. She’s not sleepy, she’s a “paw-fessional” hard at work. Well… sometimes she’s sleepy, but it’s part of her rigorous testing process! Sammy is currently dedicated to her work, but looking to reduce her hours of cave dwelling and share her time with a family to call her own. All interested parties can meet her at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Priscilla, Adult, Spayed Female, Brown and White Terrier

Meet Priscilla! This sweet girl is very playful, inquisitive and curious.  Life is full of wonder – balls, birds, sniffs and snacks.  She’s just a happy girl who loves people – everyone is a potential friend – and getting petted, though she is not as fond of other dogs so she would love to be the only dog in the household.  With her enthusiasm and vigor, Priscilla is ready to step out and see the world, so she could benefit from some loose leash training to round out her skills.  Priscilla’s warm and generous smile is just a hint of her good soul – a recent loving, attentive, and doting mom, she is just looking for the next heart to touch and hold.
