Learn more about Marika

I'm Marika! I've been dreaming of the day I find my next chance at a happy ending. Through no fault of my own, I found myself at the shelter and while it was hard to say farewell to my past family, I'm ready to put my best paw forward and fall in love all over again! I'm a big girl with an even bigger heart; I adore attention very much and will never say no to a good pat. Behind the ears or under the chin - why choose when both are my favourite! Although I have a lot of love to give, I also appreciate having some me time every now and then. I would prefer a household with only adults and older children who will both love me when I want to be loved and respect me when I want space. I would also much rather not have any other animals around. Have you been looking at giving a girl a second chance at forever? I'll be waiting to meet you at the Ipswich AWL Rehoming Centre!

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.
