Animal Welfare League Queensland has launched its annual tax appeal with a target to raise $80,000 by 30 June, so the organisation can continue to go the extra mile for animals in their care.
AWLQ’s work is more than just providing a safe haven for close to 10,000 stray and homeless animals every year. It’s about maintaining a promise to save more lives and creating a brighter future for animals in need.
“AWLQ saves more lives because of our promise—to never euthanise a healthy, sociable or treatable animal in our care,” AWLQ state rehoming manager Melinda Phipps said.
“In addition, we are committed to keeping pets and families together by providing lifesaving support so animals are never unnecessarily euthanised or surrendered.
“We are dedicated to serving the animals of our community and with the community by our side, we can continue to go the extra mile and help animals in need,” Phipps added.
Animals, just like Bessie (pictured), who came into the care of AWLQ in a very sorry state and is now the happy and healthy face of AWLQ’s tax appeal.
Being a not-for-profit charity that receives no government funding for its animal welfare work, AWLQ relies solely on the generosity of the community to continue to help animals in need.
