The pet adoption process isn’t as scary as it sounds, but to ensure you are happy with your new pet and that your new pet will be happy in its new home, the AWLQ animal rehoming team will ask about your lifestyle as well as your wants and needs in a furry friend.
When you visit the shelter to adopt a pet please bring the following:
People love the photo of the cute puppy/dog on the website but it’s important to research the breed of the pet before coming to adopt. The Purina Breed Selector has stacks of information to help you make an informed decision before deciding to adopt your new pet.
When you visit the rehoming centre and meet a pet that you love you are welcome to take it home that day.
AWLQ has a 21 day settling in period so if you change your mind you are welcome to bring your pet back and we will find it a more suitable home. You will receive a refund of the adoption price minus a $50 administration fee.
AWLQ has a pet shop at each rehoming location where you can purchase everything your new pet requires. From food bowls, food and bedding to kitty litter and scratching posts. We also have a wide range of collars, leashes, grooming products, worming tablets, shampoo and toys available.
All money raised in the shelter shop goes back in to caring for the animals still waiting for a new home.
We have been made aware of a telemarketing campaign that is currently occurring where the caller will try to solicit funds by claiming to be from Animal Welfare League Queensland or AWLQ.
Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) does not utilise the services of telemarketing or door-to-door fundraisers for any of our campaigns.
Please be assured that all donations to AWLQ are processed online via our secure payment gateway at www.awlqld.com.au/donate. Please keep this in mind when making a donation, if you are ever unsure call us on 07 5509 9014. Thank you for your continued support!
