This Saturday, 8 October, the Animal Welfare League Queensland rehoming centre at Ipswich is hosting a family fun day for the whole community!

Between 10am and 2pm, the whole family can come along to the AWLQ Rehoming Centre at 6 Hooper Street, West Ipswich, to enjoy a day of face painting, market stalls, a raffle, and most importantly, a chance to meet the animals.

The awesome team at AWLQ Ipswich will be on hand to help out with adoptions on the day, so it’s the perfect time to get to know all the animals currently at the Rehoming Centre, and to find the purr-fect pet or four-legged friend to take home with you.

The Open Day is a great way for the community to help support the incredible work the Animal Welfare League of Queensland has been doing for the past 60 years.

Over the past six decades, the organisation has reduced euthanasia rates within rehoming centres to some of the lowest in Australia, thanks to their Getting to Zero initiative.

They’ve helped hundreds of thousands of cats and dogs to be desexed through their National Desexing Network, and they remain focused on their core mission of caring for animals, providing stray and homeless animals with a second chance at life, preventing the birth of unwanted kittens and puppies, and helping to improve the living conditions and the lives of countless animals.

A key focus of Animal Welfare League Queensland is to raise the value of animals in society so that the intrinsic needs of each species are recognised, respected and met.

As a charity, not for profit, DGR registered organisation which receives no government funding for their welfare work, the organisation relies heavily on donations, sponsorships, bequests, grants and the support of their fundraising community, so heading along to the Open Day this Saturday, 8 October, is a great way to help our furry friends in need, and to help the Animal Welfare League Queensland to continue with their compassionate and critical work.
