A South Australia where every pet has a loving home.
Connecting pets, people and community.
We connect pets, people and community by:
- Connecting pets with safe and happy homes
- Encouraging and supporting people to be informed and responsible pet owners
- Helping the community understand the value of owning a pet
- Create opportunities - we strive to give every healthy cat and dog a second chance.
- Show compassion - we treat all animals and people with warmth, passion, dignity and respect.
- Be optimistic - we focus on what's possible, staying positive, calm and realistic.
- Share knowledge - we share with each other and the community everything we know about best practice animal care.
- Walk the talk - we're trustworthy, transparent, honest and work hard to put our beliefs into action.
Since our humble beginnings in 1964, Animal Welfare League has grown into one of South Australia’s leading animal welfare organisations. In our mission to connect pets, people and community, we find loving homes for vulnerable animals in need, reunite lost animals with their families, and provide temporary shelter through our foster care program. We offer education and pet advice to the community to encourage responsible pet ownership and our social enterprises provide much-needed support to South Australians looking for pet boarding facilities and pet cremation and memorial services, as well as those on the lookout for a bargain at our Thrift Shops.
