Who We Are

Animal Welfare League Australia

We are a national non-profit organisation caring for companion animals across Australia. We formed in 2007, when the Animal Welfare Leagues of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland united to become Animal Welfare League Australia. Dogs Homes of Tasmania joined AWLA in 2010 and SAFE Inc joined in 2014. Together we have more than 300 years of combined experience in caring for animals in need.
