Kip is an active 6 year old Maltese X who is looking for a family that will play with him, take him for walks, to the beach and park and make him a real member of their family.

We are just getting to know him and once we do he will be ready for adoption.

His adoption fee will be $250.


Murphy is a 6 year old Shih Tzu X, this darling boy has had numerous home in his short life, through no fault of his own.  We are going to settle him in care, show him what the good life is all about, get to know him and then make sure we find him the best furever home.

His adoption fee will be $350.



Annabelle is a sweet 4 year old miniature border collie.  Unfortunately our dear girl is deaf and suffering some anxiety issues.  She was living with small children which didn’t understand her needs and the whole situation was not right for her.  Our wonderful friends at Canine Connect at Golden Grove took Annabelle in for extensive training to assist with both her anxiety and her hearing loss.  She will remain in their ownership for a 12 month period to give her the best opportunities in life. When the time is right Canine Connect will be seeking her furever home with the assistance of Moving Paws.

Adoption Process

Moving Paws Inc requires an application form to be completed if you are interested in adopting a doggy. The application is then passed onto the doggies foster family for consideration. We request if you are interested in a dog a form must be completed.

Please complete via our online form here:

If you are short listed for the particular doggy you applied for, you will be contacted by a team member/foster carer of Moving Paws Inc to arrange a meet a greet within one week of receiving the application.

If the first meet and greet is successful and both parties wish to proceed a home visit is then conducted. We allow both parties an additional 24 hours to make sure they are fully committed to adopting another family member.

We unfortunately as volunteers do not have time to contact every application, but as above we will contact those that are shortlisted.

Moving Paws wants the experience of adopting a new family member to be a good one and we will occasionally suggest a different doggy as your situation may not meet the needs of the individual dog you have applied for.

There is a 4 week return policy, during this period our team will be in touch several times to make sure the transition period is going well and answer any questions you may have.

Moving Paws Inc only adopts to Adelaide metropolitan, hills area and fleurieu areas.
