Adopt a Pet!

Looking for a feline friend or a canine companion? How about an avian ally or a leporine... there's really no good word that means "friend" and starts with "L" so let's go with bunny buddy for the sake of alliteration. But at least now you know the word "leporine" means with rabbit-like qualities. 

Even more adorable than vocabulary lessons (for you animal lovers at least!): Meet some of AWLA's animal residents who are looking for a loving home.
