We're an External Rehoming Centre for the Animal Welfare Leage (AWL) of QLD

We're proud to be an external rehoming centre for the Animal Welfare League (AWL) of QLD.

The AWL aims to rehome as many animals as possible - and one of the ways we can help is to provide a facility within our store to assist in finding homes for as many unwanted cats and kittens as we can.

What kinds of Cats & Kittens do we rehome?

You'd be surprised at the variety of cats and kittens that we have helped to rehome - from rare pure breeds to everyday, lovable moggies.  Ages and breeds can vary - and we do tend to have more adult cats than kittens looking for new homes.

Our Cats and Kittens also come from a variety of backgrounds - some are strays but a lot have been surrended by owners whose circumstances have changed and they just can't care for them any longer.

Regardless of their backgrounds, they have all been very lovable and we're so happy to have been able to help them find new homes.

All Cats & Kittens come fully vaccinated, wormed and desexed. 

How long are the Cats kept in-store?

Our Cats and Kittens are typically rotated on a weekly basis.  If we have been unable to find them a home they will move onto either another rehoming centre or back to one of the AWL shelters.

We have had a custom enclosure built especially for our store to make their stay and comfortable as we can.

Who can Adopt ?

Anybody who can financially care for and provide the right environment to suit the Cat or Kitten can adopt.  We can provide the history of the cat (where known) which includes temperament, health, and other suitability factors (eg. good with dogs, other cats, children, etc.).

It is important to find the right Cat for your own home and circumstances.  We're happy to chat with you and provide advice so that you can make the right choices.

About the AWL

The Animal Welfare League of Qld takes care of approximately 10,000 strayed and abandoned animals annually from South East Queensland. The AWL receives no Government funding for welfare work, relying predominantly on the community for support.

The AWL specialises in the care, shelter, and re-homing of cats and dogs. Since 1959, the AWL has opened its doors and hearts to all companion animals in need. As well as providing on-site care at its’ two Re-homing Centre’s, the AWL has a fostering and rehabilitation program that is second to none.

The AWL works closely with the Gold Coast City Council in providing care for stray animals during their impound period, with all unclaimed animals then transferring to the AWL for re-homing.

As well as a high focus on re-homing, the AWL continues to increase community awareness about how to end the tragedy of pet overpopulation. Our goal is to bring an end to the euthanasia of healthy animals in Australia through legislative changes, education and awareness.

Pets Unleashed is proud to be an AWL external rehoming centre to help find homes for even more animals.
