Be a lifeline to animals in need
Your contribution is more than an animal shelter donation, it helps to provide low-income communities with vitally needed support in basic animal welfare and disease management.
It provides an outreach solution that vaccinates animals, controls pests and educates children and communities on how to look after their pets. It rescues animals in distress from all over Cape Town’s South Peninsula and gives them a second chance.
It provides shelter, warmth, food and love for 150 cats and 100 dogs, rehabilitating and enriching their lives and enabling them to be adopted into their forever homes.
Every cent counts. Every act of kindness makes a difference.
