The Animal Welfare League NSW Hawkesbury Branch is always looking for volunteers.
Volunteers are needed as foster carers which is considered one of the most rewarding ways to help dogs and cats.
Fostering provides them with a stable home environment where they can learn to trust people while they become used to everyday situations while developing their social skills as they wait for the new forever homes.
Volunteers are also needed for fundraising, administration or providing transportation for carers and their charges to their appointments.
AWL is always seeking items associated with caring for animals: such as, dog collars and leads, cat litter trays and litter, blankets and towels for bedding and consumable items of pet foods for cats and kittens, puppies and dogs.
Cash donations over $2 are tax-deductible.
The Animal Welfare League NSW Hawkesbury Branch can assist financially in desexing pets via the Companion Animal Assistance Scheme (CAAS) which is available to pensioners and low-income earners in the Hawkesbury area. Contact Leonie on 0402 086 580 for details.
