Alexandria The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria will host the first Alexandria Shelter Walk for Homeless Animals on Oct. 21. The new event will raise awareness about pet overpopulation in Alexandria and the thousands of homeless animals that the AWLA cares for each year until they find permanent homes. The Walk will also raise funds to support the many AWLA programs that combat animal homelessness, promote responsible pet care, and match shelter animals with loving adopters.
The Alexandria Shelter Walk for Homeless Animals will begin at 9 a.m. at Market Square and participants and their animal companions will complete a one-and-a-half-mile walk through Old Town, returning to Market Square.
