Animal Welfare League Queensland’s Beenleigh Animal Rehoming Centre is all about matchmaking, which is why the team at AWLQ are sharing with Logan locals their Pet of the Week, in hopes of finding the perfect human match for their furry friends.
The organisation’s work is more than just providing a safe haven for close to 10,000 stray and homeless animals every year, but about maintaining a promise to save more lives and creating a brighter future for animals in need.
Melinda Phipps, AWLQ State Rehoming Manager says this is achieved by not turning away animals who are suffering and not euthanising animals because they are old or require treatment.
“AWLQ’s Beenleigh Animal Rehoming Centre saves more lives because of our promise – to never euthanise a healthy, sociable or treatable animal in our care. In addition, we are committed to keeping pets and families together by providing lifesaving support so animals are never unnecessarily euthanised or surrendered.
“We are dedicated to serving the animals of our community and with the community by our side, we can continue to go the extra mile and help animals in need.”
