Hello, I'm Chess!

I'm a shy but oh-so-sweet girl who's been finding my way in this big, sometimes scary world. Alongside my dear brother Shark, I've discovered the warmth and comfort of a loving foster home. It's been here that I've learned that the world isn't all shadows and fear.

At first, I was cautious, wary of the humans around me. But in this gentle environment, I've begun to open up. Day by day, I'm learning that not all hands bring harm, and some voices carry nothing but kindness.

What I really need now is a quiet and understanding home-a safe haven where I can continue to grow into the brave girl I know I can be. A space where I can have my own cozy corner to retreat to when things get overwhelming, but where I'm also encouraged gently to step out of my comfort zone.

Shark isn't just my brother; he's my rock, my closest friend. Together, we've faced the world, and our bond has only grown stronger. It would mean everything to both of us if we could find a forever home together, where we can continue to support and comfort each other.

I may be shy, but beneath my quiet exterior beats a heart full of love and longing for connection. With the right family-patient, understanding, and loving-I know I can blossom into the brave boy I'm meant to be. Are you ready to join me and Shark on this journey? If so, pop in an application and see if we're a purr-fect match.

I am a bonded pair!

To pick me up you’re going have to pick up my buddy too.

The adoption fee is per animal.

The Adoption Process

Cats - If you wish to adopt a cat you are welcome to visit our Wingfield location between 10am and 3pm, Tuesday to Sunday, or our Edinburgh North location between 10am and 3pm, Thursday to Sunday.

Dogs - If you wish to adopt a dog, you are welcome to visit our Wingfield location between 10am and 3pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Dog adoptions from Edinburgh North are by application only. Please fill out the application form on the dog's profile and wait for our staff to contact you.

Please note we no longer do walk throughs of cats or dogs in order to provide a calmer environment for them.

Once you have met an animal you would like to adopt, you can take them home the same day as all AWL animals are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and health checked ready for their new home (yes, even the kittens and puppies!)
