If you see a dog with a V cut into one ear you know it has been sterilised by us.



Volunteer to work with us at our Centre or Anti-Rabies Camps for a few hours each week.




We are a UK-based volunteer support group which manages our website, our external fundraising, Facebook, Pinterest and our Newsletters. We keep in touch with Goans living abroad through their Associations, and support everyone who wishes to fundraise for us in any way, however big or small.

Our free News Update is published regularly, and brings you all the news stories from the Centre. It is our way of staying in touch with all our supporters. If you would like to be added to our distribution list please email us.

We are always looking for volunteers from abroad and in Goa to help us at the Centre. We have a number of projects we would like to move forward with, but need some extra help.

Are you travelling to Goa from abroad?

Could you take some photographs for us at Camps?
Could you make a video of our work for our website?
If you are Social Media-friendly, we need your help urgently.

We thank all our volunteers, staff and visitors for taking and sending their photos of us at work and play. Please keep them coming in. for our Facebook page and Newsletters – email them to info@gawt.org.

Thanks too to everyone who kindly allowed us to take their photographs at Camps and Clinics to celebrate adopting a new pet or having their pet vaccinated or treated.

And finally, thanks to all the wonderful dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, goats, ducks, Pariah Kites, owls, tortoises and snakes, to name a few, who made life interesting and, too often, sad this year. Your will to survive never ceases to amaze us.





The quick, pain-free way to give us much-needed support. You don’t even have to leave the house to get involved, and it costs you nothing!
