ARLINGTON, VA — Staff of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington cared for more than 4,900 animals and handled nearly 4,500 animal cases in 2021, the largest number in both categories in the shelter’s history.

The staff’s hard work is getting recognized as the nation celebrates Animal Care & Control Appreciation Week, which is held each year during the second full week of April. “The work of these two teams is so intertwined and integral to the success stories you see on our social media pages and newsletters,” Jennifer Toussaint, Arlington County’s chief of animal control, said in a statement Monday.
