Welcome toAnimal Welfare League QLD

Adopt a pet from awlq. ANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE QLD WORK WITH OPTIMISM, INTEGRITY, INNOVATION AND INITIATIVE TO CREATE A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR ALL COMPANION ANIMALS IN NEED.

AWLQ work with local councils, state government, rescue groups and the community to improve the outcomes for stray and surrendered pets, and are nationally recognised for our unique and innovative programs, initiatives and rehoming strategies.

AWLQ operates four rehoming centres in South East Queensland caring for up to 17,500 stray and surrendered animals each year. AWLQ also works in close partnership with city and rural council pounds to re-home animals in those areas.

AWLQ’s Community Vet Clinics are leading the way in providing affordable, quality veterinary services to our community. We believe that every pet owner should have fair and equal access to health and emergency care for their beloved pet, no matter what their financial circumstances, and treat our clients with compassion, respect and care. All profits made through our Community Vet Clinics provide further funding for the rehoming of shelter animals as well as education and fostering projects. Our Community Vet Clinics are located on the Gold Coast, Ipswich and Hobart, Tasmania.

AWLQ operates under the Getting to Zero model and has one of the highest animal save rates for an organisation of our size. Once an animal comes in to our care we will keep it as long as it takes to find them a new home. AWLQ is supported by 12 op shops, community and corporate sponsors, fundraising and community outreach. If you would like to help in supporting AWLQ there are plenty of ways you can get involved.

At Animal Welfare League Qld one of our highest priorities to keep all of the animals in our care healthy, sociable and happy. Through our enrichment programs our dogs are walked daily and taken to the beach to stretch their legs three times a week. Our cats are given plenty of space to run around and play with all of the high spaces, toys and hiding spaces they could ever need. Our dedicated cat enrichment volunteers spend time with our cats every day to ensure our cats and kittens stay sociable and affectionate towards people.
