Grabouw Animal Welfare Society (GAWS) has been working tirelessly in the Grabouw\Elgin community since 2012. Our community is varied and consists of townships, urban suburbs, farms and wide-open natural vegetation areas. We therefore get involved with an assortment of animals and various cultures of humans and which requires effort and dedicated volunteers.
GAWS is a non-profit organisation which is fully self-funded and receives no Government or local municipality funding. We rely heavily on the support of our local community and dedicated volunteers.
Our Mission & Goal: Our mission is to curb the ever-increasing problem of an over-growing population of unwanted and suffering animals! Our Goal is to make a difference. • Sterilisation • Education • Rescue, Treatment & Rehabilitation of sick animals • Feeding when food is available • Rehoming our township & street animals to loving owners
