In many cases serious bites and scratches can avoided if we are able to recognise the ‘warning signs’ that a dog or cat is unhappy and therefore unreceptive to the advances of children or adults.
The AWLQ PetSense Program was developed to help children better understand their cats and dogs for the purpose of preventing injuries. The program was designed for use by teachers, parents as well as children, to help them ‘read’ dog and cat body language so they are better able to gauge when and when not to approach, pat and play with an animal.
All resources are available to download free from the list below or a hardcopy PetSense Resource Kit may be ordered from the Education Division by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning (07) 5509 9032.

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.
