Gladstone PAWS Incorporated is a small animal welfare organisation, operating in the Gladstone Region.
The volunteer group formerly known as Team RSPCA Gladstone transitioned into this local independent not-for-profit association in August 2019. With many years’ experience in animal welfare – our mission is to:
• Rescue and rehome unwanted, abused, neglected and/or surrendered animals (including dogs, cats, birds, pocket pets and reptiles). With the support of our partners, Gladstone District Wildlife Carers Association (GDWCA) and Petbarn Gladstone.
• Assist the community through the facilitation of a desexing program.
• Educate school-aged students and the public in relation to responsible pet ownership.
• Provide Short Term Emergency Pet Services (STEPS) including Crisis Care accommodation for those affected by Domestic and Family violence, or requiring emergency hospitalisation.
• Provide assistance for older people who are unable to continue care for their pet. This may be due to health, or the need to transition into an aged-care facility that does not allow pets. (Golden PAWS)
