The Animal Welfare League’s Lady Grey

The Animal Welfare League’s Lady Grey

We love visiting our local animal shelter, the Alexandria Animal Welfare League. Both of our family pets come from the shelter including Wei, the sweetest Schnauzer mix you will ever meet, and BB-8, our Hemingway cat who has brightened up our lives since we got him in January this year.



There is one special cat at the shelter named Lady Grey. She is beautiful and sweet as can be.


Unfortunately, she has been at the shelter since January. This really upset both my kids because January is when we adopted BB-8. The thought of her being in the shelter all that time makes us sad.

The Animal Welfare League has a great program called Adopt it Forward. There are generous people who pay the adoption fees for some of the animals at the shelter. Lady Grey’s fees have been paid!


She has to be an only cat because she has an upper respiratory infection that is contagious.


My daughter has a special affection for Lady Grey.


She drew a picture of her and the shelter hung it on her cage.


Please consider taking Lady Grey into your home.


I frequently take my kids to the shelter to visit the animals to give them some extra love and attention. Actually, my kids constantly ask to go to visit their favorite dogs…








and even ferrets…


We also like to check to see which lucky animals have found homes.

  1. I definitely agree that Wei & BB8 are really the most lovable pets….. And I too have adopted from a shelter. Our pets are wonderful companions & become family.

    • I sure do love our pets BB-8 and Wei. They are amazing, sweet and beautiful! I really miss Lady Grey and the other animals. Love this Blog

  2. Lady Grey is awesome! Such a loving girl, she just wants to curl up on your lap and make biscuits. My husband and I volunteer at the shelter and visit her every chance we get. She deserves a good home!

  3. Love it!
