A compassionate community dedicated to providing safe and caring homes for pets.
To create, uphold and encourage the highest standards of health, care and welfare for pets in our community.
We do this by:
- promoting the human-animal bond and responsible pet ownership through national campaigns, partnerships and initiatives.
- supporting our members to operate at the highest possible standards.
- collaborating between our members to identify and communicate best welfare practice.
Like a dog with a bone, AWLA is determined to achieve its goals and realise its vision of a responsible community, providing safe and caring homes for all companion animals.
Pets bring out the best in people and our commitment to animal welfare brings out the best in AWLA as a caring and compassionate organisation.
Our animal companions are often brave and irrepressible. AWLA aims to be equally courageous and spirited, meeting challenges head on and making the most of every situation in pursuit of our goals.
Our companion animals trust us completely and AWLA works to earn that trust through the highest standards of integrity, transparency and professionalism in all aspects of our work.
The animal-human bond brings great joy to all who seek and experience it. AWLA seeks to create that sense of joy in our activities and in our relationships with members, stakeholders and animal lovers everywhere.
