Welcome to GAWS

Reuniting Lost Pets
GAWS acts as the pound facility for numerous councils in and around Geelong. When a lost pet is picked up by a council ranger, or found wandering by a member of the public, it is likely it will end up here at GAWS. Ensuring that pets have adequate identification, such as a microchip, collar and tags, really helps us reunite lost pets and their owners quickly.

Community Vet Clinic
We have a team of experienced surgeons and vet nurses that can offer medical treatment as well as welfare advice for your much loved pet. Our clinic also offers discount de-sexing to the community to promote responsible pet ownership.

We have a fantastic Op shop located at 63 vines road in Hamlyn Heights. All proceeds from the Op shop go directly back into the daily running of the shelter.
We are open from Monday – Saturday from 10am-4pm so visit us today to pick up quality second hand & brand new clothing, furniture, sporting goods, books, CD’s, kids games and more!
