Learn more about Max Merlot

Hello there, I'm Max Merlot. My age has only refined me, much like a good wine. I'm as sweet as a ripe grape, and my heart is as full as a bottle of your favorite Merlot. I'm gentle, never one to cause a fuss. I'm independent, too, happy to entertain myself. But don't let that fool you, I'm as loyal as they come, always there when you need a friend. I love a good cuddle, finding comfort in the warmth of a kind heart. And I've got a lot of love to give, a love that's as enduring as an old vine. I may be a senior, but I've got a lot of life left in me. So why should you adopt me? Because every home needs a Max Merlot, a friend who's always there, a comfort in the quiet moments, a joy in the simple ones.

Help AWLQ continue to care for homeless animals like me...

Please visit our Animal Rehoming Centres during opening hours to meet our animals and adopt. No appointment is needed. For select animals, we will require an email application. Where this is the case, instructions will be specified on the animal’s profile.

This website is live and updates frequently. To check if an animal is available, please check their adoption profile. If it is active and hasn’t been marked as ‘adopted’, the animal is still here.

Please be aware there is a chance that by the time you arrive at our location, the animal you have an interest in might have been adopted, or another party might be going through the adoption process.
