Time frame: July 1, 2017, at 9 a.m. to July 2, 2017, at 7 p.m.
We love our dogs and cats but they are by no means the only animals that the AWLA works with every day.  We want to share some love to the little guys too, including the fish, the birds, reptiles, amphibians and all our small mammal friends, from rabbits to ferrets to guinea pigs and more.  Animals from each of these categories (Birds; Reptiles/Amphibians/Fish; and Other Mammals) that receive the most votes between 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 1, through 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 2, will receive additional votes: 300 additional votes to the top vote-getter in each category and 200 to the runner-up.
