Our Mission / Objective

AWLQ and its staff and volunteers have been diligently caring for many thousands of homeless animals in communities across Southeast Queensland since 1959.

AWLQ is a not for profit charity that relies on donations and the bequests of our supporters to maintain our ongoing operations.

AWLQ works closely with local and state agencies and stakeholders to advance strategies, initiatives and legislation to further the goal of ending euthanasia in pounds and shelters across Australia of healthy and sociable companion animals.

In addition, we develop and make available a variety of community based educational and awareness outreach programs that teach children responsible companion animal care.

AWLQ is a compassionate, modern and forward thinking organisation that works extremely hard every day towards achieving positive outcomes for the many thousands of animals that arrive at our shelter doors in need of food, shelter, veterinary care and, most importantly, the opportunity for each of them to be adopted into a loving ‘forever’ home.

AWLQ has one of the highest rehoming rates in Australia and has rehomed over 130,000 animals.

We are AWLQ and we have been a part of Queensland families for five generations.

For specific information on Corporate Donations & Sponsorships, Workplace Giving and Kennel Sponsorships phone Neil Rangeley  Tel:  (07) 5509 9057 or email bdm@awlqld.com.au

 

For all Bequest and Legacy Pet inquiries phone Jacquie Kennedy, Relationships Manager  Tel: (07) 55099099   bequests@awlqld.com.au

Our Services

Adoptions, Community Vet Clinics, Volunteering & Fostering Programs, National De-sexing Network, Educational Outreach Programs, On-line Store, Community Engagement With Seniors Programs and GOLDEN HEARTS Seniors Pet Support Program

Our Legacy Pet program allows pet owners to plan for the long term comfort and security of their animals should a time arrive when a person may no longer be able to care for their animal themselves. By planning ahead and enrolling these animals in this AWLQ program, people can have peace of mind knowing their companion animals will be properly looked after and continue to receive love and human companionship for the rest of their lives.

There is no obligation to make a donation or bequest to enrol a pet in the AWLQ Legacy Pet program but donations and bequests are gratefully accepted as they allow us to continue to help more animals in need.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Many people spend time making plans and thinking about the future, but overlook one of the most important responsibilities – making a Will.

About one-third of all Australians die without leaving a Will. When you make a Will you have the opportunity to ensure that you provide for loved ones and friends. It is the only way you can be sure your assets and possessions are distributed as you wish.

You may also wish to ensure the ongoing care and welfare of your pets should your death preceed theirs – the Animal Welfare League Qld Inc provides peace of mind for responsible and caring pet owners through our Legacy Pet Program

Your Will also gives you an opportunity to leave a very special gift toorganisations you admire or which have played an important part in your life. Such a gift or ‘bequest’, is the ultimate expression of your generosity and are a very personal representation of you and your nature.

For some, they provide an opportunity to leave behind an important legacy after a lifetime of giving. For others, they offer the chance to fulfill their dream to provide a considerable donation at a level of giving that may have been impossible during their lifetime – and thereby providing significant injection of funds for building and major improvement projects.

When you leave a bequest to the Animal Welfare League of Queensland, you guarantee that your generosity and values will continue to live on well beyond your own lifetime
