Missing a pet in Alexandria?

Cookie, a three-year-old Border Collie was recently found on N. Payne Street in Old Town, and parakeet Viola was discovered near Sanger Avenue and Derby Court.

The Animal Welfare League currently has four stray animals in its shelter — two dogs, a cat and a bird. These companions are designated as strays for up to 10 days before they are put through AWLA’s evaluation process to be adopted. During that time, AWLA releases photos of the pets with descriptions on its website, social media and on local sites like Nextdoor.

“We hope that we’re able to reconnect these animals to their homes,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “We know sometimes people don’t necessarily know or don’t think of how to reconnect with a pet once they’re out of your home. So, we just try and get the information out there in as many ways as possible.”

If you’ve lost a pet or have information on one, call AWLA at 703-746-4774.
