During the month of March, the Animal Welfare League NSW shelter at Kemps Creek had been temporarily closed to allow construction to safely take place on our new cattery. We are excited to announce that although our cattery is not yet complete, our shelter will be re-opening to the public on Monday 1st April and to celebrate, we are hosting a 50% OFF Adopt-a-thon at our Kemps Creek shelter from Monday 1st until Sunday 14th April.


AWL NSW Kemps Creek shelter has many pets waiting patiently for a new furever home, so to help them find their purrfect new families, we have reduced their adoption price to help these pets find love sooner than later. There are many cats and dogs at our Kemps Creek shelter and all of them have their own unique personality. Some are fun and playful, while others prefer to laze and snuggle on the lounge.


From 1-14 April 2019, all pets at the Animal Welfare League NSW Kemps Creek shelter will have their adoption price halved to help them find a loving new family.

What is the new adoption price?

Adoption prices have been reduced by 50%. This means that it costs as little as $100 to adopt a kitten who has been desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea-treats, microchipped, and health checked. And it just gets better! Our adult cats are reduced to $87.50 and our senior cats are reduced to $37.50 – all with the same vetwork and care as the kittens!

If you’re more of a dog-lover, then it will cost as little as $50 to adopt a senior citizen. If your family is ready for the commitment of a puppy, then $250 will get you a new family member complete with all vetwork done too!

I would like more information on adopting a horse

From time to time, AWL NSW will have horses and other livestock available for adoption. During this promotion, our horses are also available to adopt at half-price to help them find new homes sooner.

You can view the horses available to adopt here.

If you would like to arrange a meet and greet with our horses, simply call our Kemps Creek shelter on 02 8777 4445 and they will arrange an appointment with you.

What else do I need to know?

Our standard adoption criteria and lifestyle screening applies to ensure it is a purrfect match!

It can be costly to own a pet, so our expert staff will ensure that the decision to adopt a new family member has been thought through properly and the whole family agrees on the decision. Potential adopters are required to be 18 years of age or older.

What will happen to these animals if they are not adopted?

AWL NSW does not place time limits on the animals in care, meaning our adoptable animals will stay with us for as long as they need to before they are adopted.
