What does it mean to be a Pen Pal?

GAWS receives thousands of animals into care each year and has over 200 animal pens onsite.  Your annual sponsorship supports the animals in your pen by helping cover the costs of veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and all of the care they need during their stay. 

GAWS is a registered charity- all donations are tax-deductible.
