About this organisation

The Canine Welfare Alliance of Australia (or Canine Welfare Australia), is small not for profit, volunteer run, foster based, pro-life canine welfare and rescue group based in Perth, Western Australia.

Our organisation is the first of it’s kind, and was set up to fill a gap in the canine welfare industry, by providing a comprehensive approach to save dogs who required a little extra assistance to find their forever home. One of our aims is to rescue, humanely rehabilitate and appropriately rehome dogs which would otherwise be left behind or forgotten.

With a focus on staffy, bully and molosser breeds, we work with councils, veterinary clinics and other industry professionals around Australia to decrease euthanasia rates of all canines. We provide an individualised rehoming program for each dog which enter our care, in the hope they never find themselves in the system again.

Furthermore provide a referral, advocacy and support service to dog owners who require assistance to keep or care for their dogs. We feel if owners are presented with adequate resources and appropriate advice, it reduces rehoming and euthanasia rates, as well as improves public safety and quality of life of canines.

We also campaign to improve penalties for the abuse or neglect of canines; advocate for the removal of breed discriminatory legislation, including promotion of responsible canine ownership; and campaign to introduce consistent, progressive and humane welfare management practices for all canines.

It is our belief that all dogs have the ability to be social, well behaved community and family members, given the right opportunities, and provided with the right environment, training and guidance.
