Animal Welfare League NSW has had to make the difficult decision to close our shelter at Ingleside on Sydney’s Northern beaches. After extensive assessment by a professional contractor, it was determined that there were multiple compliance issues relating to waste water management and building codes. After much deliberation, the AWL NSW Board agreed that the only current course of action was to close the shelter.

We realise this news is distressing to many of our supporters, but with the greatest concern for human and animal welfare, for safety reasons the shelter can no longer continue to operate.

We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time. We will continue to build on our positive work at our remaining shelters at Kemps Creek and West Hoxton along with our extension branch and foster network throughout NSW. We thank our staff, volunteers and supporters for their many years of involvement with Ingleside.
