Caring for the nation’s animals...

we’re a national non-profit organisation caring for companion animals across Australia.

Caring for the nation’s animals...

Our affiliated shelters in QLD, NSW, VIC, SA, TAS and WA have 300 years of combined experience in caring for pets and their people.
Strengthening the human-animal bond is central to our work.
We believe caring for animals also means supporting the people who share their lives with companion animals.

Support our latest Campaign

Beyond 100

AWLA is fully funding the desexing and microchipping program in collaboration with Broome Veterinary Hospital who have discounted fees to assist at-risk animals or owners in dire financial need. In the short term, 100 animals will be desexed and microchipped.

With your help, we will be able to extend the Broome Desexing Project to provide much needed desexing and microchipping procedures for another 20 animals.

Your assistance will go directly toward delivering desexing and microchipping procedures for another 20 animals. Any further funds received will go into to the Broome Desexing Project pot to desexing and microchipping for additional animals - the more funds we receive, the more animals we will microchip and desex.
