Welcome to CADAWI

Caboolture and District Animal Welfare Incorporated is a group of dedicated volunteer foster home carers and fund raisers. We have been rescuing and rehoming dogs, cats, pups and kittens for nearly 20 years. At CADAWI we have no refuge but a group of dedicated foster homes that do a wonderful job not just caring for the animals but socialising them, doing basic obedience training and often house training them.


CADAWI operates an extensive program for fostering dogs and domestic cats.

We rehome small to medium size dogs, adult, mature age, pups and cats.
