All dogs that are ready for adoption have a profile here on our website, so please look through them to see if you can find your new best friend.
Your adoption journey starts here! To express your interest in adopting, please complete an application form. Please complete the form promptly to avoid disappointment. Dogs that are listed as application only are not available for meet and greets. If your application is successful you will be contacted by an AWL staff member and proceed to the next steps of your adoption journey.
You and the whole family will need to meet the dog. That includes any other dogs you already have.
Once you've decided to adopt, there's some simple paperwork to sign and an adoption fee to pay.
Please bring an ID showing your current name and address (i.e. driver's license, concession card, proof of age card, passport).
Bring a lead to take your new friend home the same day.
Adoption fees vary depending on the age and type of animal. The prices include a full vet and behavioural assessment, desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, and a pack full of tips for settling your pet into their new home.
These costs represent a significant saving on the fees you could pay if you buy a pet from elsewhere.
