Over the past twelve months, more than 2,200 animals were given a second chance through our GAWS Adoption Program. Could you offer a forever home to a special animal in our care?

To meet your new best friend visit the Dogs or Cats photo gallery or visit us at 325 Portarlington Road, Moolap.


Our main aim when an animal comes into our care is to prepare them for their new life in a forever home. Animals are checked over by a vet; vaccinated, desexed, microchipped and given any treatments they may need. Our shelter staff are experts in supporting you to make the right choice for your lifestyle.
