At TEARS, we're no strangers to the power of unity. Each year, we witness a beautiful surge of volunteer support that empowers us to take on extraordinary projects that transform our shelters into havens of love and care for our furry friends. Without the selfless dedication of incredible volunteers like you, these dreams would remain mere aspirations.

In 2024, our Kennels and Cattery have set their sights high and have many Mandela Day Projects that require your helping hands. Once you've chosen a project you’d like to get involved with, simply register and we'll send you an email with all the supplies you need. To make your experience even more convenient, you can pre-order the necessary items from the TEARS Online Shop. Imagine arriving at the shelter for your volunteer shift, and everything is ready and waiting for you. It's that easy!
