GAWS is a not for profit animal welfare organisation providing best practice animal care, community education and animal rehoming programs.

Our commitment is to:

  • Be advocates for animal welfare
  • Reunite lost animals with their owners
  • Maximise pet adoptions
  • Provide quality veterinary services for the lost and stray animals in our care and affordable veterinary services to the general public
  • Raise awareness of responsible pet ownership and pet companionship

Our animal shelter receives no government funding and relies on the generous support of the community to deliver this vital work.

We thank all those who enable our work and who share our commitment and vision to give all animals a second chance ‘because every life is precious.’
