Animal Welfare League NSW is committed to helping more communities in need.

The Animal Welfare League NSW family is growing and we are thrilled to reach out to more communities as we welcome two new volunteer branches in Armidale and Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

The AWL NSW Armidale branch opened in May this year, and our newest volunteers in Armidale are already doing amazing work in their local area. Our Armidale branch volunteers are dedicating their time and expertise to help local animals in need by operating an Op-Shop and raising funds through the sale of donated goods. In addition to running the shop, our branch volunteers are heavily involved in rescuing and rehoming animals as well as planning and organising community programs for vaccinations and desexing of cats and dogs. The AWL NSW Armidale op-shop is located at 159 Beardy Street, Armidale.

In late August, our newest volunteer branch in Sydney’s Northern Beaches officially opened with an enthusiastic and skilled new committee that is dedicated to assisting vulnerable animals in the area. We are positive that the new AWL NSW branch will achieve many positive outcomes for the animals in the Northern Beaches and surrounding areas.

Did you know?
Most of our volunteer branches do not have physical locations and are run by a team of dedicated volunteers who help to rehome pets with a wonderful network of foster carers. View our branch locations here.

As AWL NSW continues to grow, we have our sights set on the beautiful area of Wagga Wagga and the Riverina region and are looking for passionate animal lovers who want to make a real difference to animal welfare in these communities. You can help our work by becoming an AWL NSW branch volunteer. Our volunteers support their communities by:

  • Fostering animals through private surrenders or rescuing from local shelters and helping the animals find new homes.
  • Creating relationships with local veterinary clinics to develop a discount desexing program for local pensioner cardholders.
  • Working with local councils and other community groups to address local animal welfare issues.

If you would like to be part of something great and help kick-start our work in the Wagga Wagga region, then please get in touch with us by emailing helpingpets@awlnsw.com.au.
