Join the Ultimate Slumber Party and Find Out Why Shelter Pets Cuddle Better!

You are invited to the most heart-warming sleepover of the year.

If your idea of a perfect Saturday night involves cozying up with a blanket and some furry friends, then you're in for a treat. It's time to mark your calendars for the 10th annual TEARS Sleepathon – dust off your sleeping bag, grab your camping gear and spend a magical night at our shelter, snuggled up in an enclosure with our rescued dogs or cats.


A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.

Discover firsthand why shelter pets cuddle better. Join us in creating unforgettable memories and help raise life-saving funds for pets in need.

How to Take Part in the TEARS Sleepathon

Step 1: Get Your Ticket

Secure your spot at the TEARS Sleepathon for just R250 per person. You can sign up as an individual, create a corporate team, or gather a group of your closest friends and family for a memorable night. Choose whether you want to doze with dogs or catnap with cats, and pick a night for your sleepover at the shelter:

11 November

18 November

25 November

Your ticket includes a delectable meal, an exciting goodie bag and you’re guaranteed a night filled with furry cuddles! Space is limited and we don't want you to miss out on the fun. Remember, if you snooze, you lose! Please note that Sleepathon tickets are considered donations to secure your spot and are non-refundable.


Step 2: Check Your Inbox

Once you've secured your spot, keep an eye on your inbox for your exclusive Sleepathon Welcome Pack. It's your one-stop guide for a successful Sleepathon experience, packed with useful information, awareness-sharing tips and fundraising strategies.


Step 3: Choose a Cause and Start Fundraising

Your R250 ticket secures your place at this year's Sleepathon, but your mission doesn't stop there. Your goal leading up to the TEARS Sleepathon is to raise additional donations for a cause close to your heart. Your fundraising efforts will make a significant impact in helping animals in need. The more you raise, the more animals you'll support!
