Locals urged to support AWLQ’s Stray Animal Day this Thursday

Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) is urging Gold Coasters get behind Stray Animal Day this Thursday, April 4.

The charity is calling on local animal lovers to get involved by fundraising, sponsoring or donating to help create a brighter future for stray and abandoned animals.

Since 1959, AWLQ has worked with Councils and the community to rehome 130,000 stray and homeless animals.


Last financial year alone, AWLQ helped to rehome 6,373 animals, including 430 in their senior years, while the Shelter Vet Clinic provided 30,775 medical treatments, desexed 3,962 cats and dogs and microchipped 3,881 cats and dogs.

This year, Stray Animal Day focuses around the AWLQ Promise to never euthanise a healthy, sociable, or treatable animal in their care.

Stray Animal Day is a day to show compassion for stray animals, so show your support by fundraising, sponsoring or donating. Funds raised will go directly towards helping the AWLQ care for these animals and are tax deductible. For more information, visit: strayanimalday.com.au/
