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 cats are health checked, vaccinated, worm/flea treated, litter trained, microchipped, desexed, registered with Gladstone Regional Council and cats over 1yr old are tested for FIV. Our animals are socialised in the homes of loving foster carers getting used to people, other pets and normal household routines. You will also receive all adoption, vetting and treatment paperwork at time of adoption.
Our general cat adoption fees are:
Cats over 6 months: $180
Cats under 6 months: $200
(older or long term cats may be discounted, and highly adoptable cat adoption fees increased to be able to cover those discounts).
A small number of our cats are also available for adoption at Petbarn Gladstone. Pop in for a visit!
Indoor homes only! Pre-adoption interview required. We don't have a bricks-and-mortar facility so our animals are adopted from foster (unless at Petbarn)
