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.




GOLDIE on 3 week trial Adoption:

Hallelujah!! CAWI’s golden-girl, heart-throb, delightful-darling, met David yesterday who had driven up from Sydney to meet 2 Northern River’s rescue dogs. He & his highly energetic Boxer Moses, fell for Goldie, who in turn nearly jumped straight into David’s arms. 

David’s place in Sydney has a yard designed for Goldie with 8ft fences where she & Moses can play exultantly & unbounded. The happy trio drove away today, headed back to Sydney. 

We’ll miss you Goldie! Have fun, be good! Humongous & eternal thanks to everyone involved in Goldies rescue, care & promotion – she has certainly landed on her paws!   



A young couple happened upon Goldie one day; tied up, under-loved & under-nourished. They asked the owner if they could walk Goldie, who said yes, take her, we don’t want her. Unable to keep 2 dogs, the couple had to surrender Goldie into CAWI’s care.

Goldie, a 1½-year-old de-sexed female Staffy x Lab is indeed the most happy loving gentle & agile bruiser of a girl, who can hurdle any height enclosure with ease, but who woos all those who meet her.

Goldie needs a constant companion (human or canine) & someone willing to put some time into training and exercise. She loves the beach and is exceptional with other dogs and children.

She has the loveliest of temperaments but requires exhilaration & play to satiate her vitality & curiosity.

Please call Shell from CAWI on 0458461935 for a meet-up with this adorable girl.




Yes, I’m looking at you. Yes, YOU! …
My ideal new companion.
You have a family? Fine, I’m down with that.
You have another dog? Kool, I love to play.
You want to continue my training? Perfect, I love that stuff.
Whoa! Don’t take your attention off me

Meet Coco, a purebred beautiful glamour-coat German Shepherd de-sexed female 9-month-old puppy.

Very friendly and sociable with other dogs – male and female, good with adults and children. She is highly intelligent, motivated and a super quick learner.

Coco needs a home with a high level of commitment to continue her training and socialisation for up to 18 months with ongoing exercise.

She is needy, requiring attention with both mental and physical stimulation. She loves being part of a family/pack.  Someone prepared to commit to all the above and give her what she needs will be rewarded with an exceptional dog and reliable friend who would enjoy competitive obedience or agility.

She is not a lounge around the house type as she is a highly active breed. She is not suitable for someone with little or no experience in dog care and training. Being a long-haired GSD, she will need regular grooming.

If you fit Coco’s prerequisites and would like to meet her, please call Shell from CAWI on 0458461935. $550 adoption fee applies.
