Helping Pet Owners in Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, DC
  • Please be aware that AWLMC is a small, volunteer run shelter. We cannot take any kitten that has tested positive for either Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV ) or Feline Leukemia (FeLV). Note that all cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age must be tested within the 30 days prior to being accepted by us.
  • Our ability to accept kittens is dependent on the availability of a foster home.  No cats under 1 year of age reside in our physical shelter.

  • AWLMC cares for kittens in foster homes rather than the shelter to help them socialize and have more successful adoption experiences. Therefore, acceptance of kittens is limited to the availability of an AWLMC foster home.

  • Kittens must be non-feral, must be able to be handled, and in good health.

  • Orphan or feral kittens should be reported and/or taken to your local municipal shelter where they will have access to immediate care to improve their chance of survival.

  • Regretfully, due to limited foster home availability, we are rarely able to take underage kittens with or without their mother.  If you have kittens that are still completely dependent on the mother for nursing, or are in need of bottle feeding, and you cannot keep them until weaned, they should be taken to your local municipal shelter where they will have access to immediate care to improve their chance of survival.

  • Our organization is not equipped to take any cats or kittens with chronic medical or physical issues.
