According to Graeme Goodall, Operations Manager of Caboolture and District Animal Welfare Inc., it is a volunteer organisation that has been established for almost 30 years, set up for the purpose of re-homing surrendered cats and dogs in the Bribie and Caboolture area. “To help cover costs we operate two pre-loved shops situated at the Woolworths complex in Bongaree and the other at 3 King St Caboolture,” said Graeme. “At any one time, we have a number of cats, kittens, puppies, and dogs placed with our foster carers waiting to be re-homed.

All our adopted animals come vet checked, up to date vaccinations, micro chipped and de-sexed,” he said. Graeme says your potential new pet can be viewed at or to check out the adoption photos at either shop. “We are also always looking for people who have a passion for animals to join our foster caring team. All costs (vet, food, etc) are covered whilst in care,” he said.

If you wish to come on board as a carer or are interested in re-homing one of their pets you can call their Animal Co-Ordinator on 0455 778 166 or the Operations Manager on 0477 581 286.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
