If you’d like to become a CAWI Volunteer, see the HOW TO HELP page (opportunites include FOSTER CARING).


The CAWI OP SHOP is our main fundraiser. The Op Shop is open Monday – Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 10am-2pm. The Op Shop sells (and would welcome donations of) clothes, household items, books, crockery, bric-a-brac and some pet supplies.

Your gift is TAX DEDUCTIBLE  


Donations to CAWI translate into second chances for some of the homeless companion animals in our shire. Your generosity will enable us to cover the costs of:

  • extensive veterinary expenses (including, but not limited to, de-sexing, micro-chipping and vaccinating)
  • food, bedding, parasite prevention, collars, leads, ID tags, toys and other on-going canine maintenance costs
  • advertising of dogs for adoption on the radio and in newspapers
  • professional dog trainers where necessary, to bring out the best in our dogs (and their owners)

MOST importantly your contribution will add to our building fund for CAWI’s Animal Adoption Centre.
