‘Bonnie’ is a sweet, two year old brindle staffy cross who was abandoned by her original owner and later surrendered to the care of the AWLQ after her new owner was unable to care for her.
She arrived at the AWLQ Gold Coast rehoming centre in June, 2012, where she was health checked, micro chipped and made available for rehoming.
‘Mack’ is a beautiful one year old white and tan staffy cross who came into our care after he was picked up as a stray in August.
These two deserving dogs shared a pen together and began their patient journey waiting to be picked by someone to become a new member of the family.
Meanwhile in Beaudesert, Chris and Trina had settled into their newly married life and after a year were ready to adopt a dog into their family. One of the guests at their wedding was a staff member from the AWLQ who had given them a $100 voucher for use at one of the three rehoming facilities we operate on the Gold Coast, Ipswich and Beenleigh.
They visited the Gold Coast rehoming centre and took both ‘Bonnie’ and ‘Mack’ into an exercise yard to see which dog would be best suited for their family. They were torn as they were attracted to both of these lovely dogs who had also formed a close bond with each other after living together at the shelter whilst waiting for their 2nd chance, so they made the decision to adopt them both.
These two friendly and deserving dogs are now happily sharing their new lives with Chris and Trina in Beaudesert and the AWLQ thanks them for opening their hearts and home to these two beautiful spirits.
For 53 years (since 1959) the AWLQ has been a part of Queensland ‘s families and we have rehomed over 130,000 animals into the homes of those families during our history. We thank the residents of Southeast Queensland for always ‘choosing to adopt’ and for their ongoing financial donations to the AWLQ.
These donations allow us to continue to offer a seond chance for a loving ‘forever’ home to many deserving animals.
