AFTER a three-year-hiatus Animal Welfare League’s Home for Christmas Adoption drive is back and it’s on this weekend. As a gift to homeless animals to get them Home for Christmas AWLQ’s spokesperson,
Craig Montgomery, said it is hoped the drive will find close to 160 animals’ happy new homes.
“We are encouraging the Ipswich community to open their hearts and homes during Home for Christmas and help us rehome every animal,” he said.
“Cats will be reduced from $180 to $30 and dogs from $400 to $99 during this mega adoption drive.
“There is no greater gift to an animal than a loving home. When you adopt a furry family member from AWLQ’s Ipswich Centre, you are providing that homeless animal with a second chance at happiness,” he said.
Without the Home for Christmas mega adoption drive and the support of the Ipswich community, the number of animals in AWLQ’s care would soon reach critical levels.
On average, they have 1,145 stray and homeless animals in care every day at their centres.
“Every rehomed animal provides a space for another in need of a new home, so you’re helping two animals,” Craig said.
“AWLQ promises never to euthanise a healthy, sociable, or treatable animal in our care. We work tirelessly to keep this promise, which we are proud of.”
AWLQ’s standard adoption processes still apply, and all cats and dogs are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed.
