With just hours left to donate to AWLQ's inaugural Stray Animals' Day challenge a very generous benefactor has pledged to match every donation made!
Are you up for AWLQ’s Stray Animals’ Day Foster House challenge?
Animal Welfare League Queensland’s inaugural Stray Animals’ Day challenge is aiming to reach a target of $124,000, to cover the cost of running our vital Foster House program.
An incredible 6,200 animals, or more than 71% of all animals in AWLQ’s care, spend time in foster care each year
Animals, just like Oliver, pictured below.
The staffy cross had a severe skin condition and has so far spent a month with foster carer Amelia and was at today’s challenge launch. By donating today you will help Oliver, and other animals receive the care and attention they need before they can be adopted.
Animals like Mango and her brood of ginger kittens, Coral, Saffron, Nemo, Dorito and OJ. The entire family went into foster care when the kittens were just two days old, their umbilical cords still attached. Five weeks later and they are thriving, thanks to the loving attention of a foster carer.
Animal Welfare League Queensland continues to be a leader in animal rehoming. In July last year AWLQ included treatable conditions to the list of reasons an animal will never be euthanised.
Our promise to you is that we will never euthanise a healthy, sociable animal with a treatable condition, whatever its age.
It costs at least $20 to foster each animal in a private home and AWLQ’s foster carers are critical in the care of newborns, the elderly, sick and abused animals.
Without that one-on-one time with our dedicated foster carers, many of these animals, particularly the kittens and puppies, would die.
Thousands of stray and abandoned animals owe their lives to the Foster House program, so what better day than International Stray Animals’ Day to make a difference.
This $124,000 will cover one year of Foster House’s medical bills so please give what you can to make this target a reality.
Funds raised will go directly toward the cost of care for these animals and are tax deductible.
