CAWI Adoption fees: CAWI charges adoption fees to help cover the costs we have spent on the dog. Every CAWI dog is desexed, microchipped and vaccinated, plus up to date with parasite prevention. Our fees for adoption are $300 for an adult dog, $350 for a puppy and $200 for a mature age dog.
CAWI takes pride in matching dogs with the right homes. We can advise on the dogs’ suitability as we have the insight gained by our foster carers. In addition, there is a 3 week trial and cooling off period for you and the dog – if things aren’t working out CAWI will take the dog back. We don’t want any mistakes for you or the dog.
The dogs on this page are CAWI rescue dogs. Some non-CAWI dogs that are looking for new homes are advertised on the PRIVATE ADS page.
Pounds often have nice dogs – there are some choice candidates advertised ON THIS PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE. It’s also worth contacting your local pound.


Bali is a young staffy x boxer who came into our care from the pound. She’s sweet natured, loves going for walks and is excited to meet everyone. With a bit of training, she will fast become your new best friend!

Update: 13/11/17 Basil has gone on he’s trial period with he’s new family.

is a 3 month old pup, the last of Mia’s litter waiting for a home. He is Kelpie crossed with Boxer x Mastiff, so will likely be a bigger size dog. He is a happy, curious pup with a cheeky personality. He loves to play and has spent almost all of his life around his siblings plus other dogs, cats, kids and even the occasional horse! Basil has already been learning how to be a well-behaved dog and would like to continue his puppy training in his new home.

If you are interested in meeting and adopting Basil, please complete the Adoption Application form available on the Contact page of our website or you can pick one up from our Op Shop in Brunswick Heads.
