If you have room at your heart home for an animals, consider adopting from the Animal Welfare League Queensland!

AWLQ is one of Queensland’s most dynamic and best-loved charities. Our organisation is the leader in the zero euthanasia movement nationally and is considered a national leader in animal welfare. AWLQ locally provides a safe haven for close to 10,000 stray and homeless animals each year, while also assisting other communities in saving homeless animals.

Did you know that each animal that the AWLQ cares for, costs approximately $660 each and this money is never fully recouped? The organisation relies on the generous donations of individuals and corporate benefactors and the money received from every higher priced adoption, supports giving other animals the lifesaving support they need.

take a look at the animals that are waiting for forever homes at each of their locations. AWLQ has five animal rehoming centres:

  • Beenleigh Animal Rehoming Centre
  • Gold Coast Animal Rehoming Centre
  • Ipswich Animal Rehoming Centre
  • Warra Animal Rehoming Centre
  • Willawong Animal Rehoming Centre

Whether it’s a kitten, a puppy or you want to give an older dog a loving home in their twilight years, consider adopting from the AWLQ and support the work they do to give all animals a second chance.

In addition to their shelter work, we are committed to keeping pets and people together by providing lifesaving support and resources to people in need with companion animals.
