Animal Welfare League of NSW
Animal Welfare League NSW™ (AWL NSW) is a registered charity that has been operating for over 60 years. We provide expert care to surrendered, neglected and abandoned animals across NSW. We believe that all companion animals in NSW deserve a safe and loving home and we strive to accomplish this through our work in rehoming, education and discount desexing programs.
We are one of the only two regulating bodies authorised to exercise powers under the NSW Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Our inspectors are authorized to seize and prosecute cases of animal cruelty and neglect, and our team is on the road every day protecting animals, educating owners, providing emergency rescue and investigating allegations of animal cruelty.
Animal Welfare League NSW operates an animal welfare shelter and a veterinary hospital in NSW where surrendered animals are cared for prior to adoption. Animal Welfare League NSW also has various branches located across the state, managed and operated by dedicated and passionate volunteers.
All pets available for adoption are assessed by our qualified behaviour team so they can be matched with suitable owners and lifestyles. All our pets are medically examined by our veterinarians. Dogs and cats are treated for fleas and worms, vaccinated, desexed and microchipped before they are made available for adoption. Adoptable pets will stay in our care for as long as they need to before they find a new forever home. As part of our ‘Getting to Zero’ philosophy we are committed to achieving zero euthanasia of healthy and treatable cats and dogs.
