A Shelter Full of Hope and Promise

WAG’s Adoption Process

Thank you for choosing to adopting via WAG! We know that every animal (and every home) is unique, so our aim is to find the 'perfect match' for each of our residents and facilitate a successful transition. 

If you are ready to commit to adding a special dog or cat to your loving home then please follow the 4 steps outlined below:

*Puppy & Kitten Adoptions*

Please follow the same process as above and do your best to be patient. Applicants will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis, ONCE we have received your application. If you are ready to adopt a puppy or a kitten, we recommend monitoring our website regularly for new arrivals as we are a small team and are unable to run a wait/wish list for potential adopters.

     Before you Adopt!

  • Are you prepared for a lifetime commitment?
  • Do you have other animals? How might they react?
  • Do you have, or are you planning on having, children?
  • Do you have long-term pet friendly accomodation? 
  • Does your strata have pet related rules?
  • What will happen to the animal if you move? 
  • Who will look after them when you go on vacation?
  • If your current relationship changes or if something happens to you, who will look after them?
  • What are your plans for training?
  • What personality best fits your lifestyle?
  • How will you afford vet care?
  • Have you considered pet insurance?

Adoption is a lifetime commitment to that animal - make sure you are ready!
