Wishlists

If businesses are feeling the pinch, you can only imagine what a struggle it is for animal shelters and welfare organisations to survive in the present economic environment. Without the continuous support of kind-hearted and generous individuals, groups and organisations that believe, as we do, that animals feel, fear and hurt just as we do, we would not be able to bring relief to distressed animals as we do.

As it is, our staff, volunteers and supporters fulfill the TEARS’ mission in all weather and every circumstance, be they fair or downright dangerous. We never, as far as we can possibly help it, pass or look away from a dog or cat (and sometimes a pig, rabbit or bird) that is suffering. We deal with mange, disease, the traumatic results of beatings, chaining and cruelty; and at each rescue of every animals, there is an invisible presence that looks over the shoulder of our staff and volunteers. That presence is you, the generous donor who allows us to put petrol in our vehicles, pay for lifesaving medical equipment and supplies, comforting blankets, nets and carriers, and the kennel that will be safe haven for the next saved life.

Here are some of the things we so desperately need to help us fulfill our mission. If you are able to help us with any of the items our wish list, please call 021 785 4482 or email: marketing@tears.org.za.
