Council animal rehoming centres to return to normal operations

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise the Warra and Willawong rehoming centres will return to normal operations as of Monday 15 June 2020, with enhanced safety and social distancing measures in place.

Operational restrictions were implemented on 9 April to comply with State Government regulations.

Brisbane City Council’s two animal rehoming centres provide a safe environment for all lost and surrendered animals in Brisbane.

The Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) administers the animal rehoming centres and specialises in the care of animals. Every effort is made to reunite lost pets with their owners and to rehome any unclaimed animals that are healthy and sociable.

To view the animals available for adoption, you can visit the Animal Welfare League Queensland’s (AWLQ) website. Contactless card payments are still the preferred option, however cash payments are now available.

Brisbane City Council is working closely with Queensland Health and the Australian Government and will continue to be guided by these agencies on all matters of public health. Any further updates to our services and facilities will be provided when available. For health advice or information visit the Queensland Health website

For information call Council on 07 3403 8888.
