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.



UPDATE:  Sally has gone on trial to her new forever home and is settling in extremely well.

Meet Sally, she is an eight and a half year old desexed 16kg Cavoodle (Cavalier Spaniel x Poodle). She has just been vet checked. Sally is slightly overweight but this can be addressed with regular exercise. She loves the beach even goes into the water. House trained, not a nuisance barker, doesn’t shed fur. She is good with children, loves people, and fine with other dogs, ok with cats. Sally needs a regular clip during summer. A nice, loving, little dog! Please phone Margaret at CAWI if you are interested in giving Sally a life long home on 0458461935.
Adoption fee applies.
