Petitioning Animal Welfare League (AWL) Board AWL Board

Urgently re-open the Ingleside animal shelter

There is a desperate need for the Ingleside animal shelter to be reopened to provide facilities for stray, lost, abandoned or surrendered animals. Due to its location, the facility also has access to one of the best markets for re-homing and an income stream from boarding.

The Animal Welfare League (AWL) NSW recently permanently closed the relatively new million dollar state-of-the-art facility without consultation or transparency to the community who funded it through fundraising and bequests.

The land is worth several million dollars and given the costs of the Sydney property market, the opportunity to acquire such an asset in the future will  be near impossible.

We the petitioners, hereby petition the Board of the AWL NSW, currently consisting of 

  • GLYNIS BOOBYER
  • NARELLE COCKS
  • JEANETTE EMANUEL
  • DAVID HOPE
  • AUDREY MCGEOWN
  • CHRISTINE RICHARDSON
  • JOANNE RIGHETTI
  • SHAWN SKYRING
  • ANNETTE TOMLINSON

as follows:

  1. To take all necessary steps to re-open the shelter.
  2. To publicly explain details of the compliance issues relating to waste water management and building codes which caused the shelter to close down, and why the shelter cannot be reopened.
  3. Disclose and make public any proposed sale or redevelopment of the Ingleside shelter site.
