ANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE Pet of the Week
All the cats and dogs that are available for adoption from the AWL have been desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and health checked and are ready to go. Adoption costs start from $25.
The pets may be at one of three AWL locations - Wingfield, Port Adelaide or Edinburgh North
Adoption opening times: 7 days a week, 10am - 3pm
Dog of the week is Mable:
I’m a goofy, sweet gal who’s just 2-years-old and cuddle time is my most favourite time of all…but I don’t realise that I’m too big to be a lap dog…whoops. I’m a smart girl who loves learning and walks. My new home won’t have any small pets, but they may have a large patient dog who suits my personality perfectly.
Cat of the week is Captain Sparkle Toes:
I’m only 10-months-old, so I’m still a very young man who’s learning all about life and love. I’ll be sure to keep you entertained for hours with my playing and cuddles. I could happily share my new home with other pets, but I may prefer a home without children under 10 who may scare me.
For more information about a particular cat, rabbit or dog go to the AWL website at www.awlsa.com.au or phone 8348 1300.
