Are you passionate about animal welfare? Have your say and make your voice count! If you want to help make a real difference to the matters you care about, then become a member of Animal Welfare League NSW.

AWL NSW membership offers animal lovers a great way to get involved with like-minded individuals, and to help contribute to promoting responsible pet ownership through publicity, events, and information days in their local communities through our network of volunteer branches across the state.

How your membership will help animals in need

Becoming a member is a great way to show your support in caring for abandoned, neglected, sick, injured, and surrendered animals. Your membership will help raise awareness and vital funds that will contribute to the care of thousands of vulnerable animals that need AWL NSW’s support each year.

Your membership will help support:

  • Discount Desexing available through our branch network
  • Inspectors respond to reports of cruelty and neglect.
  • Shelters care for and rehabilitate surrendered animals prior to adoption.
  • Veterinary Clinic to treat injured and sick animals.
  • Foster Carers save lives and care for the weak and vulnerable.

Your care and compassion will make a lifesaving difference to both animals and their owners.
