WATCH: AWLQ rehome almost all animals from Coombabah centre

The Animal Welfare League Queensland (QWLQ) rehoming centre at Coombabah is a little quieter than usual today, with most of the animal kennels completely empty.

The not-for-profit organisation slashed their adoption fees earlier in the week, with locals turning out in droves to find a furry friend to take home.

Melinda Phipps told myGC they managed to rehome 94 animals from the Coombabah facility alone.


“We rehomed pretty much every single animal, which was fabulous, including the guinea pigs,” she said.

The centre is now temporarily closed to the public, however adoption centres at Beenleigh and Brisbane remain open.

“We do have a few animals left. There are about 17 cats in Brisbane, and a couple of dogs and Beenleigh and Brisbane.

“We will still have animals coming through for adoption, so we are encouraging everyone to go to our website.”
