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 Rusty:
I’m a bouncy, peppy, 9-month-old pup, who’s looking for a loving family to take me home. am too excitable for cats and other types of small animals but may live happily with another dog given the right introductions.
Cats of the week are Paris and Tahiti:
We’re a gorgeous pair of girls with a special bond that holds us both together through anything life throws at us. We are both quiet and loving, and we’re looking for a home who’ll let us take life at our own pace.
