About us


Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL) is a registered charity that has been caring for surrendered, neglected and abandoned animals for over 60 years.

AWL is authorised to investigate allegations of animal cruelty under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. AWL operates two animal welfare shelters, a veterinary clinic and has 16 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.
