ANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE Pet of the Week
All the cats and dogs that are available for adoption from the AWL have been desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and health checked and are ready to go. Adoption costs start from $25.
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
Cat 1 of the week is Merrylegs:
I'm a handsome male and love smooches. I'll keep your lap warm at night and your windowsill occupied during the day. I'm only 2 years old and have almost found my home a couple of times but through no fault of my own keep finding myself back at the AWL.
CAT 2 of the week is Minerva:
I'm a shy, gentle little 18 month old princess looking for a loving home where I can snooze in peace. I find children a bit scary so a quiet home would suit me.
For more information about a particular cat, rabbit or dog go to the AWL website at www.awlsa.com.au or phone 8348 1300.
