“We hope to rehome every single cat and dog who is waiting at the shelter in time for Christmas,” Ms Whitney said.
“They’ve all been desexed, vaccinated and all wormings are up to date. They just need someone to take them home and love them.
“We encourage people to choose to adopt from a shelter, especially over the Christmas break.
“People have a bit more time in their schedule to get to know each other and the pet is settled in when everyone goes back to work.”
The AWL stresses the importance of getting a pet that suits your lifestyle.
“If you go to the beach all the time and you want an active running buddy, we can match you up to a younger dog. But if you’re just after a companion we can find a lap dog or cat that is perfect for you,” Ms Whitney explains.
