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.

Bella is a desexed female six and a half year old Wolfhound x. She is a high energy dog – loves activity – enjoys catching ball. She has a good temperament, is very intelligent and loves other dogs. She doesn’t have good road sense as she has been reared in a fenced yard situation. Bella would be a great companion for a nice natured, desexed male dog of similar weight and age – (fenced yard).
Adoption fee applies.
For more information on Bella please ring Margaret at CAWI on 0458 461 935



UPDATE:  Digger has gone on trial with his new forever home.

Meet Digger a desexed 7yr old male blue/grey cattle dog stumpy tail x. He is great with adults, kids and other dogs. He adores being close to his owner and loves cuddles. He adores the attention and will try to sit on your lap. Digger is a good all rounder and is easy going.
He is a lucky dog as he has just gone on trial to a new home where he will have the company of two other dogs (a male and a female)and it is guaranteed he will receive much love and attention from his new owners.

Great News – another successful CAWI ADOPTION.
Meet Ceasar a handsome male 9mths old desexed Bull Arab cross Wolfhound. He was a private surrender to CAWI. We matched him up with volunteer foster carers from Suffolk Park – a lovely couple who fell in love with Ceasar the moment they met him. A couple of weeks have gone by and they have definitely decided to give him a life long home. He is a perfect match for them as they live near the beach and Ceasar loves running into the water and is good with other dogs.
Everything just fell into place for Ceasar – he is indeed a lucky dog!
