The journey begins…
Animals in need come to BAWA in many ways – rescued, surrendered, or dumped right on our doorstep.
Depending on their condition, they are then cared for in our quarantine facility or admitted to an external clinic for round-the-clock care, specialised treatment, or major surgeries.
More than just medicine
Our rescued animals receive nutritious meals, daily medicine, baths, wound care, physical therapy, and exercise to promote physical healing. Many suffer from emotional trauma too, requiring time, patience, love, and understanding to regain trust in humans. This emotional healing is facilitated through socialisation, cuddles, and playtime with our staff and volunteers.
The rehabilitation process can take from a few weeks to many years, and is accelerated by our fostering program.
We’re in the business of happy endings
Once the animal is healthy, happy, fully vaccinated, sterilised, and socialised, our final challenge is to find and settle animals into safe, loving, and responsible forever homes.
To ensure adopters have only the best of intentions and the ability to properly care for their new pet, we perform pre-adoption interviews and house checks, and make follow-up visits to ensure the animal is adapting well in their new home.
