About Us

Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL NSW) is a registered charity that has been operating for over 55 years. We provide expert care to surrendered, neglected and abandoned companion animal across New South Wales.

Our vision is that all companion animals in NSW have a safe and loving home. We strive for this through our work in rehoming, education and discount desexing programs. We also send out our inspectors who are authorised to investigate allegations of animal cruelty.

As part of our Getting to Zero philosophy (G2Z) we are also committed to achieving zero euthanasia of healthy and treatable cats and dogs – a point of difference with some other major animal welfare groups.

Our charity is run and funded largely by volunteers and generous animal-lovers. There are many ways people can get involved with us including by donating, fundraising, volunteering or purchasing an item from our online store.

We have 2 shelters which are open 7 days a week if you would like to adopt an animal for us, or if you live in a regional area you can contact your closest branch (only some branches offer rehoming services).
