Homed Dogs

Occasionally we like to post follow-ups of dogs that have recently been adopted and settled into a new home. Perhaps you’ll see some of the dogs that were previously listed for adoption.

If you’re a sucker for a happy ending, have a look at CAWI’S DOG TALES – you’ll see some heart-warming stories.





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.

Meet Ebony, a female 8 month old American Staffy x. Abandoned, rescued and now in CAWI’s care, she’s a playful ball of energy with the sweetest loving nature.

Contact Shell from CAWI on 0458461935 for a meet-up.



Gemma’s Beautiful Journey:

Gemma was rescued by and surrendered to a local Coorabell woman, from an intolerably inexcusable situation in Grafton… found restrained on a 1-metre length chain without comfort, shelter or regular food… Gemma was emaciated and fearful.

Unable to stay with her rescuer, she was entrusted to CAWI’s Rescue/Adoption officer who had her assessed by the Furry Dog Mother and then placed into tender loving foster care in Brunswick Heads for over 2 weeks rehabilitation.

Gemma’s life has changed forever. Amazing with children and a gentle graceful clever intuitive loving dog, Gemma has now been adopted by an adoring family (with 2 young children) who live on a rural property and visit the beach regularly.

Voluminous thanks to everyone involved in Gemma’s liberation, recovery and renaissance
