Bendigo Animal Welfare & Community Services Inc.

Central Victoria's first"No Kill' Animal Shelter & Sanctuary

Founded in 2003, BAWCS is a not for profit organisation dedicated to providing a safe, caring and enriched environment for abused, injured and unwanted animals. We work in rescue, rehabilitation, animal welfare advocacy, responsible pet ownership education and support, and are committed to rehoming for life.

We embrace our philosophy of caring with compassion by operating Central Victoria's first "No Kill" Shelter and farm animal sanctuary, together with nurturing the important relationship between pets and their owners by providing advice and support in times of need.

BAWCS Community Pets Support Program is designed to benefit and support the welfare of companion animals within Victoria belonging to disadvantaged pet owners.

The Program's aim is to addresses a gap in service provision for disadvantaged pet owners in our community.

Please donate to support our ongoing care for animals in need.
