Meow there! I'm Rizzo, and I've got quite the story to tell you about my journey to finding a forever home! Let me give you a glimpse into my world.

First things first, food is life! I'm a big fan of my meals, and I'm not shy about showing it. When it's mealtime, I turn on the charm with my meows and leg rubs. I'll even grace you with some head and back pats if you're lucky! But remember, I've got boundaries. After a good petting session, I will let you know I've had enough.

Speaking of boundaries, I'm not a fan of being picked up. I prefer to keep all four paws on the ground, thank you very much. Loud noises also make me a bit jumpy, so I appreciate a calm and quiet environment where I can relax and soak up the sun.

Now, when it comes to playtime, I'm more of a sunbather than a toy enthusiast. You'll often find me lounging in a patch of sunlight, basking in its warmth.

Overall, I'm a sweet and affectionate feline with a few quirks here and there. With the right family who understands and respects my boundaries, I know I'll thrive and bring joy to their lives. So, if you're looking for a furry friend who's equal parts cuddly and independent, look no further than yours truly, Rizzo!

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!)
