Adoptathon Day

Visit TEARS Animal Rescue Kennels and Cattery on 6 March from 10AM to 3PM for an Adoptathon Day!

Sadly, Phillippi-based Adopt-a-Pet Animal Shelter has been forced to close after 17 years of rescuing and rehoming companion animals in need. TEARS has offered to help the shelter close down, and Adopt-a-Pet will be transferring the remaining 31 dogs and 3 cats to our care.

TEARS and Adopt-a-Pet have always had a close relationship and common goal. We are pleased to be able to assist Adopt-a-Pet in providing a safe haven and hopefully rehoming the remaining dogs and cats that are still at the shelter.

Adopt-a-Pet has homed dozens of dogs and cats announcing their closure and only the last few pets remain and wait for homes.

We’re appealing to Capetonians to consider opening their hearts and homes to accommodate an Adopt-A-Pet or TEARS dog or cat. TEARS doesn’t have the space to take all Adopt-A-Pet animals at one time, so we’re hoping to increase our adoptions on the day to ensure that we can integrate these animals as soon as possible.

The ADOPTATHON will take place at the TEARS Kennels and the TEARS Cattery, both in Sunnydale.

To view the dogs and cats looking for homes, please visit the TEARS website at

Anyone who is interested in possibly adopting needs to complete the adoption questionnaire ahead of the event so the Kennel and Cattery Team can consider the perfect “match-ability” between pet and pet owner.
