Dalmatian Rescue Association of Western Australia Inc (DRAWA) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, foster and rehoming of Dalmatians in need. DRAWA was founded in February 2013, and incorporated on the 1st August 2013, largely due to the efforts of our founder and dog lover, Dawn Gillett, along with some like-minded and dedicated people. From their efforts, DRAWA was registered and attained a Charitable Collections Licence and endorsed by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) as a deductible gift recipient within its first 12 months of operation.
DRAWA is managed solely by volunteers, and we believe that every Dalmatian, regardless of their pedigree, hearing ability, health or fitness, deserves a loving, suitable home. We are available for support and advice to novice and experienced Dalmatian owners alike.
All Dalmatians rehomed by DRAWA remain under the long term care of the association and if they need rehoming again must come back through us.
All potential owners will have their homes assessed for suitability and all dogs are temperament and behaviour tested to ensure suitable homes and dogs are matched up. All new owners will have a telephone contact for the first 4 weeks and first time owners for 3 months. We then do a follow up after a year to check everything is okay.
