Not everyone can adopt an animal, but there are other ways to help Animal Welfare League NSW.
There is nothing that Animal Welfare League NSW appreciates more than the donations we receive. Generous donations of certain essential goods help us care for our animals and help raise much-needed funds. We rely on the support of the community to help our shelter animals and gratefully accept donations from our wish list of items below.
Each and every donation makes a direct impact on the welfare of the cats and dogs in our care. Thank you to all our supporters.
We would ask that if an item is not on the list below, then please do not donate it to Animal Welfare League NSW. Instead, consider donating it to another worthwhile charity that may be able to use it.
Please note that we are currently not taking in shredded-paper
