About us


Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL) is a registered charity that has been caring for surrendered, neglected and abandoned animals for over 55 years.

AWL is authorised to investigate allegations of animal cruelty under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. AWL operates three animal welfare shelters, a veterinary clinic and has 13 branches of active volunteers across NSW.

All animals available for adoption are temperament assessed, vet checked, desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated.

Importantly AWL aims to match all adoptable animals with the lifestyle of potential owners, to ensure a long and happy relationship for all.

AWL also offers pet boarding at our Ingleside and Kemps Creek Shelters. Your pet will be cared for by our qualified staff, ensuring their stay with us is comfortable and enjoyable.

AWL NSW fundraising staff are members of FIA and comply with the Principles & Standards of Fundraising Practice.
