Lost Pets and Lily Alerts

Contact POA Animal Control at 922-6547, and for additional help finding your pet, send information for a Lily Alert - see below. We will help you publicize the pet in the Village and give you other tips on finding your pet.

If a pet is missing, immediately call Animal Control at 922-6547. To expand the coverage, call AWL at 915-9337 and ask to participate in the Lily Alert program. The volunteer on duty will instruct the pet owner as to the procedures involved. Or, email a photo, description, and contact information to lilyalert@hsvawl.org. Once initiated, the pet's description and contact information will go out to those receiving the alerts.

To be included in Lily Alert email list, send your email address and we will add you to the list lilyalert@hsvawl.org.

Stray or Found Pets

These pets are admitted to Animal Control or rescued through other community sources and may be someone's lost pets. Their photos are posted on the HSV Police Department Facebook page, so please contact Animal Control if you may be the owner or have information that may help reunite a pet with its owner: 922-6547.

Stray or found cats and dogs should be reported directly by a resident to POA Animal Control at 922-6547, not by someone else with second-hand information. If an animal needs to be trapped, Animal Control has to obtain the homeowners' permission to set a trap on their property. AWL strongly recommends that those concerned about pets roaming on or near their property, first try to see whether the pet belongs to a neighbor before calling Animal Control.

Shop Online: When you shop online, you have two ways to give to AWL without spending a penny more. The iGive and Smile programs support charitable organizations by contributing to the group you choose. The donations come from the company whenever you shop online at a business that cooperates with the program. Thousands of businesses do, so it’s a bonus for those who shop online.

Amazon Smile: Go to misname and select Hot Springs Village Animal Welfare League before you begin shopping. Then every eligible purchase at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

Walk for a Dog: You walk your dog anyway. Now every time you walk your dog (or a virtual dog), they donate to HSV AWL. Treadmills don't count.

Kroger Rewards Helps AWL

Shopping at Kroger with Kroger Community Rewards will yield more money for AWL with no cost to you.

1. Obtain a free Kroger Plus card by registering at a Kroger store.

2. Register your card online with community rewards program at inaidable

3. Then link your card to community rewards, choosing Hot Springs Village Animal Welfare League (34048).

Gals, gather your friends together for a raucous, howling party! By now members have received your 2 books of raffle tickets for one of the fun activities of the evening. But, it’s much more than just a raffle.

GGH is an evening with a full plated dinner, wine fountain, cash bar, vendors for pampering, a style show, and, of course, the climactic finale — a dance number by our very own “Cheapendales”!

Tickets will be on sale online August 28 at HSV Ticket Sales. Hurry because, since it is a seated dinner, tickets are limited.

More information will be available in the coming weeks on KVRE radio and via email, so plan your fun night out.

Holiday Wishes Campaign Begins Soon

Remember last December when Petco Foundation gave AWL a $25,000 grant? We were shocked that it was such an amount, but by golly, AWL has used that money well.

Now is your chance to help AWL win even more and for you to get a $1,000 shopping spree. This year’s Holiday Wishes campaign focuses on how your relationship with your adopted pet has changed your life. So, submit stories describing how your adopted pet has made your life better. Stories range from the simplest things that bring more joy to life each and every day to the one-of-a-kind, extraordinary stories.

Look for another email with details, or contact Public Relations.

RE/MAX on Facebook

RE/MAX and Designs Group Consulting (a Village marketing firm) asked to interview a volunteer of AWL at the AWL facility for social media and website marketing of Hot Springs Village. Here is the short interview with Shelley Shepherd, AWL’s dog adoption coordinator. Derby, one of our adoptable dogs, was running around behind Shelley because although he was supposed to be sitting next to her, he decided to run around – so cute.
