Emma Hawkins is using her WAG status to help out some of our most vulnerable community members this Christmas. Partnering with the Geelong Animal Welfare Society (GAWS) to help promote their Christmas Appeal

Project WAG, Help Wag a Tail aims to support the 1000 strays, lost and surrendered animals that will go through the unfunded GAWS shelter over the Christmas break.

CEO of GAWS, Adrian Buckley, acknowledges that funds raised this year are below expectations, making this Christmas appeal even more crucial.

“We hope the community can dig deep and support this appeal so we can continue to rehome all our lost and abandoned animals to give them a second chance,” he said.

GAWS are calling on all animal lovers to join Project WAG to Help Wag a Tail this Christmas.  There are many ways you can participate in raising much-needed funds, through business donation boxes, school and corporate fundraisers, regular giving and bequests programs.

Emma said she loved the fun concept of Project Wag, saying, “GAWS provides a service to our community that is crucial to the welfare of animals. I’m encouraging everyone to get on board and donate, allowing GAWS to continue their great work.”

All donations are tax deductible, to join us, donate online at or contact the GAWS Community Engagement Manager, Julia Ladgrove, on 0409 720 323.
