Business Hours


     AALOC has many opportunities for animal lovers who would like to make a difference in the lives of our precious rescued animals. The dogs and cats benefit greatly by being around people and receiving love, cuddling and socialization. Animal socialization and companionship increases the dog or cat's probability of being adopted into a loving home. Volunteering is very rewarding for you and the animals.
