Your gift is TAX DEDUCTIBLE

Donations to CAWI translate into second chances for some of the homeless companion animals in our shire. Your generosity will enable us to cover the costs of:

  • extensive veterinary expenses (including, but not limited to, de-sexing, micro-chipping and vaccinating)
  • food, bedding, parasite prevention, collars, leads, ID tags, toys and other on-going canine maintenance costs
  • advertising of dogs for adoption on the radio and in newspapers
  • professional dog trainers where necessary, to bring out the best in our dogs (and their owners)

MOST importantly your contribution will add to our building fund for CAWI’s Animal Adoption Centre.

The kennels were the creations from a team design competition held by 4impact, the respected IT consultancy, and will be used to house rescued dogs in our upcoming dog shelter.
