The Animal Welfare League of Qld takes care of approximately 12,000 strayed and abandoned animals annually from South East Queensland.
We receive no Government funding for welfare work, relying predominantly on the community for support.
The Animal Welfare League of Qld specialises in the care, shelter, and re-homing of cats and dogs.
As well as providing on-site care at its’ three Re-homing Centre’s (Gold Coast, Beenleigh and Ipswich), the Animal Welfare League of Qld has a fostering and rehabilitation program that is second to none.
We wors closely with the Gold Coast City Council in providing care for stray animals during their impound period, with all unclaimed animals then transferring to the AWLQ for re-homing.
As well as a high focus on re-homing, the Animal Welfare League of Qld continues to increase community awareness about how to end the tragedy of pet overpopulation. Our goal is to bring an end to the euthanasia of healthy animals in Australia through legislative changes, education and awareness.
