| Animal Boarding
You can relax knowing that your pet will be safe and happy while you are away. We also provide enrichment packages that include; dog walking, washing, play time, interacting toys, and chews of your choice.
GAWS always has a variety of animals looking for homes. As well as dogs and cats, we often have rabbits, ferrets and birds available for adoption too. These animals are made available for adoption after they were relinquished by their owner or they were an unclaimed stray. To view the animals we currently have available for adoption, check out the adoption pages.
|Reuniting Lost Pets
GAWS acts as the pound facility for numerous councils in and around Geelong. When a lost pet is picked up by a council ranger, or found wandering by a member of the public, it is likely it will end up here at GAWS. Ensuring that pets have adequate identification, such as a microchip, collar and tags, really helps us reunite lost pets and their owners quickly.
| Do-It-Yourself Dog Bath
We have a hydro bath and hair drying facility where you can bring your dog, save some money and do it yourself.
We have a large range of affordable & high quality pet food & supplies available at reception including; bedding, collars, leads, toys and treats.
