Foster Care Wishlist

The AWL Foster Program provides assistance to desperate animals through temporary care in a suitable nurturing home, with committed and trained Foster Carers.  More than 1,000 kittens enter the AWL Foster Care Program every year. 

As AWL receives no Government funding, we rely on donations from our community to help animals in need. 


Kitten Shower

AWL will be hosting our inaugural Kitten Shower at PETstock Sefton Park on Sunday 3 November from 1pm until 3pm.
