The AWLQ works 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 rehoming, the AWLQ 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.
We need the Community's Help
The AWLQ cannot continue its welfare work, caring for the communities homeless animals without the financial support of the community. The direct costs involved in the re-homing of each animal are approximately $500 This cost does not include the support staff that maintain the organisation, allowing the AWLQ to keep its doors open, or the veterinary clinics, which provide charitable veterinary care to the public.
The AWLQ is a Registered Deductible Gift Recipient, Registered Charity No 422 and is a part of the Australian Charities Fund.
