We are a dedicated and enthusiastic Gladstone Animal Rescue and Welfare group located in Central Queensland. We are new on the scene but our volunteers have been working to save our Gladstone pets for up to 16 years.
Over the years, my family has adopted 5 dogs from PAWS (when it was under the banner of the RSPCA). I found the adoption officers to be very friendly and helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The animals we have adopted are my heart and soul. They have performed nursing home visits and trained in obedience and dog agility and are current used as school dogs in my agility business.
Bella was about to be transferred to Brisbane but one look at her pic and we were in love. Bella was ours. She is now living her best life with regular trips out to the family farm, to the beach, and camping, and I thank my lucky stars every day we found our perfect match for Gus and our family. Read More
My two foster fails, Al and Bino, the love they have for each other is beyond!
We fostered Oberon at 10 months old in November 2018. He befriended his foster brother and was tolerated by the boss cat. After losing my boy not long after his arrival, he became bonded with my other cat and helped him with his grief. He helped bring fun to our house with his personality and his sweet nature, he now is named Oberon and is very spoilt and loved.
I fell in love my foster fail the minute i saw him. Benji had almost no teeth, needed a haircut and someone to love him. Now he is very spoiled and a part of the family. We had him now for 4 years he is 12 years old now.
We currently offer adoptions, surrendered animals, Golden PAWS and GPAWS STEPS programs. Working with our local community to provide animal welfare services to young and old. Find out more about what we do here!
Gladstone PAWS is a newly developed animal welfare organisation, operating in the Gladstone Region by the volunteer group formerly known as Team RSPCA Gladstone. Services include: Adoption, Surrender, Golden Paws, STEPS. visit www.gladstonepaws.com
Gladstone PAWS dogs are health checked, vaccinated, worm/flea treated, microchipped, desexed, registered with Gladstone council and dogs over 1 year old are also tested for heartworm.
They are also socialised in the homes and yards of loving foster carers, not in cages or kennels. All adoption and vet paperwork provided to you at time of adoption.
(PM us if interested in joining our foster team and helping save a life like these)
Our general dog adoption fees are:
Dogs over 6 months: $300
Puppies under 6 months: $400
(older or long term dogs may be discounted, and highly adoptable dog adoption fees increased to be able to cover those discounts).
We care where our pets go:
A pre-adoption phone interview and property check are required before adopting our dogs. We don't have a bricks-and-mortar facility but if you are interested in a dog you can meet them at the foster home and arrange to adopt.
