If your idea of a perfect Saturday night is to curl up with a blanket and a furbaby (or two, or three) then this event is for you! Whip out your sleeping bag and camping gear and spend a night at our shelter bunking in an enclosure with rescued dogs and cats.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. Find out why shelter pets cuddle better, help fundraise for their future and join us for a sleepover you’ll never forget!

What's the Sleepathon all about? Watch this...

How do I take part in the TEARS Sleepathon?


Get your ticket

Tickets cost R200 per person and you can sign up as an individual, corporate team or a group of friends and family. Decide whether you will be dozing with dogs or catnapping with cats and choose which night you will be staying at the shelter for your sleepover (14, 21 or 28 November).

Space is limited, so don’t wait too long. If you snooze, you lose!

Receive your Sleepathon Welcome Pack via email. It’s filled with all the information you need for a successful Sleepathon, as well as helpful awareness sharing and fundraising tips.


Start fundraising

Your R200 ticket secures your spot at this years fundraising event, and your mission leading up to the TEARS Sleepathon is to raise funds for animals in need. The donations you bring in will help us where we need it most:


  • Help provide shelter, rehabilitation and care for up to 200 companion animals at the TEARS Shelter
  • Fund an outreach solution that sterilises and vaccinates companion animals in vulnerable communities
  • Help educate children and communities on how to look after their pets
  • And rescue animals in distress from all over Cape Town’s South Peninsula, giving them a second chance at a happier life.


The more funds you raise, the more animals you will help!


Let the slumber party begin!

Check in at the event and enjoy a pawsome, unforgettable sleepover experience at the TEARS Shelter! The Sleepathon is one of our most favourite events of the year and Sleepathoners enjoy it as much as our shelter animals do.

We're here to help you every step of the way
