The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) will host the first-ever Alexandria Shelter Walk for Homeless Animals. The new event will raise awareness about pet overpopulation in Alexandria and surrounding areas, and the thousands of homeless animals the AWLA cares for each year until they find permanent homes. The Walk will also raise critical funds to support the many AWLA programs that combat animal homelessness, promote responsible pet car, and match a variety of shelter animals with loving adopters. The 1.5 mile walk begins at Market Square in historic Old Town Alexandria and walkers will stroll through neighborhoods once walked by George Washington. Visit for more information.
