As we approach the end of another year it is a time to reflect on all we are grateful for and all the blessings we have.
SMAWL prides itself in our many community outreach programs as well as the care we provide for the animals in our care. Without our supporters we would be unable to carry out our many programs and for that we are eternally grateful.Read More
The SMAWL Pet Food Pantry was established as a resource for needy families to acquire pet food and little for their pets during temporary financial difficulties in an effort to keep companion animals with their families.
Donations are accepted at the PETCO stores in California, Prince Frederick, La Plata and Waldorf.Read More
The St. Mary's Animal Welfare League is a nonprofit, rescue organization that specializes in the rescue, care and placement of abused, neglected and homeless companion animals. Our animals are vaccinated, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and receive medical treatment before being placed in carefully selected homes. We strive to educate the community in areas of humane education and responsible pet ownership, as well as helping to control the pet overpopulation in our area by promoting the spaying and neutering of all companion animals.
