Here at PAWS, we have hundreds of animals waiting for a forever home – dewormed, fully vaccinated and neutered/spayed.

You can save a life today by adopting from us!

Adoption Procedure

  1. Visit us any time during operating hours (open from 9am to 4pm six days a week / closed on Wednesdays and Public Holidays) to have a look at our animals that are ready for adoption.

  2. After you have selected the animal you wish to adopt, seek assistance from any of our shelter staff who will interview you to determine if you are a suitable adopter.

Although we have set a standard minimum donation per animal, we humbly ask that you make a bigger contribution to our organisation if you can afford to do so.

PAWS receives no government funding. As the donations we receive from adoptions and surrenders alone are not enough to cover the costs of caring for the animals here (e.g. for food, vaccinations and neutering), we also raise funds through other channels such as charitable events to ensure the welfare of the animals at PAWS.

Donations in cash and in kind are greatly appreciated. For a list of items we need at PAWS, kindly refer to the Donate section.

Your help can make a difference. Thank you!


No animal is to be surrendered to or adopted from the shelter on credit.
Payment must be made and a receipt obtained.
Always insist on a receipt for any money that you hand over to our office personnel.

We do not hold animals or take payment to reserve animals.
We adopt strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.

PAWS no longer holds animals as many animals who were put on hold by potential adopters were never adopted.
We want to find the best loving home for each animal so it is important for us to go through the full adoption process with each animal and potential adopter.
