Friends of the Animals (FOTA) Gold Coast is a group of like minded Animals Lovers raising funds for the Animal Welfare League of Q'ld (AWQL). FOTA Gold Coast was founded in February 2013.
The AWLQ was founded in 1959 and during it's 53 years has been caring for abandoned and strayed animals in South East Q'ld. To date AWLQ has rehomed over 130,000 animals. AWLQ does not receive any government funding and is dependent on donations from the community.
So far this year FOTA has organized seven luncheons and a Mt. Tamborine bus trip including wine tasting and Lunch at the heritage Estate Winery. We are finishing our first year with a dinner and show on December 4th. Friends of the Animals Gold Coast will be putting together a diverse program of events for 2014, and we are keen for suggestions from those interested in joining in our fund raising efforts.
