The Animal Welfare League of Qld. has for over 50 years, cared for and re-homed stray and abandoned animals. We care for more than 10,000 animals a year and provide reduced price de-sexing and micro-chipping at our community vet clinic to help reduce pet overpopulation. For owners who are unable to pay we provide free or subsidised vet care for their sick and injured animals. We are the leading animal shelter in SE Qld - working towards zero euthanasia. We receive no State or Federal government funding for our welfare work and exist solely on donations from our community. We have approximately 2300 regular supporters, 120 staff, and 300 plus volunteers. With their unceasing support we are also able to provide educational services to thousands of school children in the Gold Coast area each year and community programs to support our animals including fostering, enrichment programs and dog exercise and training programs. Our aim through our ‘Getting to Zero’ program is to continue to develop long term solutions with local community and statewide stakeholders to overcome financial, ethical, and environmental impacts of pet overpopulation and irresponsible ownership.
