Donate Goods


Animal Welfare League NSW greatly appreciates donations of goods to help us care for the animals and raise much needed funds. We rely on the generous support of the community to help our shelter pets. We gratefully accept donations of items from our wish list below - each and every donation will make a direct impact to help the cats and dogs in our care. Thank you to all our supporters who assist us to make their wishes come true!

We would ask that if an item is not on the list below, then please do not donate it to AWL NSW. Instead, consider donating it to another worthwhile charity that may be able to use it.
