Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL NSW) is a non-profit organisation that has been running for over 55 years. We provide expert care to surrendered, neglected and abandoned companion animals across New South Wales.
Our work does not just involve grassroots rescuing and rehoming programs, we also specialise in behaviour modification, education and have inspectors who investigate cases of animal cruelty and prosecute those involved.
AWL NSW is open to working with various media outlets and may be able to organise:
- An expert for media comment
- Filming and photography at our shelters
- Localised companion animal news stories
- AWL NSW logos and photography
- Organisation statistics and reports
