Geelong Animal Welfare Society (GAWS) are a not for profit, animal welfare organisation dedicated to caring for lost, unwanted, abused and injured animals in the Geelong and surrounding areas.
We receive no government funding and rely solely on the generosity of our donors and sponsors.
We have the third largest shelter in Victoria and now have the highest adoption rate, averaging 240 adoptions per month.
CATS - If you are interested in a cat, please phone 5248 2091 for further information or come in to the shelter to meet your potential new friend!
DOGS - Please call 5248 2091 for further information or to arrange a meet and greet. Please note it is compulsory that we meet any existing dogs with the GAWS dog of interest to help ensure a good match for all involved. We also highly recommend bringing any children along to meet the dog to assess the dog's interaction.
