Is now the time to adopt a dog?

Hi there dog lovers,

If you've ever considered adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue organisation, now could be the perfect time. The Animal Welfare League's New South Wales shelters are currently full to bursting, with more than 180 dogs and puppies desperately looking for their forever homes.

"AWL has been taking in surrendered, abandoned and neglected animals for over 50 years, however we are now stretched to capacity and may have to start turning animals away," says AWL CEO Maryann Dalton. "We are appealing to the community to consider adopting a pet from one of our shelters to help us help them."

Unfortunately, AWL's predicament reflects the struggles faced by rescue organisations all over Australia - so if you don't live in NSW, there are plenty of dogs in your state looking for someone to love. Pets are surrendered for a range of reasons, including unwanted pregnancies, lack of pet-friendly rental accommodation, family members who develop allergies and, sadly, owners who can't afford to properly care for their pets.

Of course, a pet is for life and AWL doesn't want prospective owners to make snap decisions - you need to give adoption considerable thought and know that you have the time and commitment to bring a new pet into your home.

The AWL's plucky resident pooches - along with more than 140 cats and kittens - can be viewed at its Ingleside (11 Cicada Glen Rd) and Kemps Creek (1605 Elizabeth Drive) shelters. You can also view the animals online.

If you've adopted a dog, post a comment and let us know what makes your four-legged friend so fantastic!

Laura.

We adopted a little google eyed goofball named Tara, we got her and she was severely underweight, she had a brown smelly matted coat, a kicked in rib and was terrified of everyone.

After a few months of good food, grooming, training, love and patience shes turned into one of the best dogs we've ever owned. She has really come out of her shell and she loves us unconditionally (unlike our purebred girl who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth who is a bit of a snob)

She picked up training faster than any dog at dog school she sings (but only if everyone else in the room sings too) and gets right up close to your face and then taps you for attention and shes the only one of the three dogs thats never interested in running down the street. She knows where shes got it good and she appreciates it.
