Learn more about Checkers

Hello, I'm Checkers. My curiosity keeps me engaged in the world around me. I'm always up for an adventure, whether it's exploring a new toy or finding the perfect sunny spot in the safety of the home. I'm also fiercely loyal. Once I bond with you, I'll be your best friend for life. My bravery makes me unafraid of new experiences, and my smarts mean I adapt quickly. Independence is my middle name. I can entertain myself, but I also love spending time with my favorite humans.

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.
