Helping pet owners in Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, DC
  • Cats must test negative for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), and Feline Leukemia (FeLV). Prior to being accepted by AWLMC, all cats must have been tested within the last 30 days.
  • Cats over the age of 6 years are “seniors” and must be in excellent health to be considered.
  • Our organization is not equipped to take any cats with chronic medical or physical issues.
  • Cats with behavioral issues such as not using a litter box, spraying, urine marking, chronic biting or aggressiveness will not be considered.
  • Stray cats should be reported to your local municipal shelter where they will have a chance of being reunited with their families.
  • If you adopted your cat(s) from a local rescue group or shelter, please review your contract before applying, most organizations want the cat to be returned to them whenever possible.
  • Indoor/outdoor cats (that is, cats that spend some or all of their time outdoors) will not be considered as they do not fare well in a shelter environment.
  • A donation may be requested to help pay for the care of the cat(s).
