Since 1964, Animal Welfare League (AWL) has been creating happy homes for stray and abandoned animals, including pets whose owners can no longer properly care for them.
We reunite lost dogs and cats with their human family, provide temporary shelter through our foster care program and support thousands of responsible owners by boarding their pets.
For those grieving the loss of a faithful companion, our cremation and memorial team offers ways to say goodbye and celebrate the joy their pet brought to their lives.
AWL operates a Shelter at Edinburgh North, with the new Animal Care Centre at Wingfield opening later in 2020.
