News and Happenings
AWLFC's K9's in the Vines 2019!
Sunday, May 5
Come out to our annual K-9's in the Vines at Linganore Winecellars for a fun afternoon of activities for both you AND your dog! What better way to enjoy the spring than with a glass of wine, music and fresh air with your dog while helping support the Animal Welfare League of Frederick County (a no-kill, non-profit, all-volunteer cat and dog rescue)! Enjoy dog games, raffles, vendors, and things to eat!
AWLFC does not support the use of e-collars/prong collars and would ask that they not be used during the event. This is a rain or shine event. No refunds.
Tickets are $20 in advance plus service fee for ages 12+, or $25 at the door. Children under 12 are free.

Would your child enjoy reading to shelter cats? (Grades K-5)
At the Animal Welfare League of Frederick County (a no-kill animal rescue) children are invited to read to rescue cats. The program encourages children to improve their reading skills while also benefiting the shelter animals.
Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing. Children bring their own book(s) and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Reservations required and space is limited. One child per 30 min. session.
If you are interested, please email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate all the things volunteers do!
