Animal rehoming centres

Brisbane City Council has two animal rehoming centres that 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. AWLQ’s promise is to never euthanise a healthy, sociable or treatable animal. Every effort is made to reunite lost pets with their owners and to rehome any unclaimed animals that are healthy and sociable.

Due to dog capacity issues, Council’s Animal Rehoming Centres at Warra and Willawong will only be undertaking adoptions for animals, other than dogs, until further notice.

To view the animals available for adoption, you can visit the Animal Welfare League Queensland’s (AWLQ) website.
