About this organisation

AWLQ work with local councils, state government, rescue groups and the community to improve the outcomes for stray and surrendered pets, and are renowned for our unique and inventive programs, initiatives and rehoming strategies.

Our organisation was the first in Queensland to open a Community Veterinary Clinic to the public, making essential vet care services accessible for the first time to those owners previously unable to afford treatment for their pets. The charter of AWLQ’s Community Vet Clinics is that no suffering animal is ever to be turned away, despite the owner’s financial circumstances.

AWLQ strives to give every animal in need a second chance and maintains an organisation wide policy of zero euthanasia of healthy animals. We have one of the highest ‘save’ rates in Australia for a shelter of our size, rehoming an average of 800 animals each month from our four South East Queensland locations.
