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: Missy has found a home!

Missy is a 4 year old shih tzu x maltese. She can be shy at first, especially with new people and dogs, but once she feels comfortable she will show you her sweet nature and bond closely with her person. She loves going for walks, spending time with her human and getting her favourite treats! She is well behaved, ok left alone for short periods of time and good with small dogs, cats and chickens. Missy would do best in a calm household with a female owner, possibly with another small dog or cat to spend time with too. If you are interested in meeting and adopting Missy, please complete an Adoption Application form (found halfway down the Contact page of our website or pick one up from our Op Shop at Brunswick Heads. Please return forms by email to or in person at our Op Shop. Applications will be processed and enquiries about Missy responded to from next Friday 14th July.




Update: Pebbles has found a home!

Pebbles is a 1 year old Koolie x with a lot of love to give! She was rescued from the pound after being found wandering on the streets. She has a very friendly nature and is great with people and dogs. She needs a bit of training to learn the basic commands, but she thrives on attention from her human so will respond quickly to learning new skills. She loves playing with other dogs at home or at the beach, and enjoys exploring every inch of her environment from the backyard to the kitchen counter! She would do well in a family who can give her plenty of attention and social time with other dogs, either at home or out at the dog park or beach. If you are interested in adopting Pebbles, please contact Megan on 0458461935.



UPDATE: Wattle has been adopted.

Wattle is a 9 week old Border Collie puppy with lots of love to share, energy to burn and kisses to give! She is a mini bundle of joy who will quickly grow into a wonderful companion – with the help of a loving home and lots of training of course! She is already very responsive to training and is constantly checking in with her human to make sure she’s doing it right (whatever it may be). She sleeps well overnight and saves all her energy for daytime activities, so will need plenty of exercise and stimulation as she grows.

If you are interested in meeting and adopting Wattle, please complete an Adoption Application form by scrolling down at or you can pick one up from our Op Shop in Brunswick Heads. Please return forms by email to or in person at our Op Shop. Applications will be processed and enquiries responded to starting Friday 23rd June.
