Adorabull Terrier Rescue and Rehabilitation is a small, but powerful, rescue organisation, much like the lady who founded and heads it, Dania Skone. Dania is a qualified animal behaviourist and the unofficial “bull terrier whisperer”. She has changed the destiny of one of the most misunderstood breeds in our country forever. more

Tekkie Tax is a national fundraising campaign founded in 2013 by Annelise de Jager. The idea is that welfares can do more fundraising as a group – as De Jager says: “Together we can achieve more than our individual efforts combined.” more

WOOF Project

Arguably one of the most dynamic shelter concepts in the world, WOOF Project kicked off in Sea Point at the beginning of March.

ZURI Orphanage

6th Mar, 2017
Zuri Orphanage was established as a “side effect” of my work as a veterinarian in Tsumeb, in the far north of Namibia, where I live. Tsumeb is over 400km away from Namibia’s main town, Windhoek, and there are few resources for orphaned and injured wild animals. more

Watershed Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Fund was started in 2009 by Stephne Jackson. Having worked with Stellenbosch Animal Welfare Society for over a decade, Stephne saw the need to start a fund to help South African animal welfare organisations with specific needs and projects, particularly sterilisation drives (a subject very close to her heart), emergency medical care, rescue centres in dire straits, and organising flights for animals adopted to different parts of the country. more

The Pit Stop

6th Dec, 2016
Marizanne Ferreira, well-known in PE as an animal rescue worker, has long dreamt of providing a special dog run for the Animal Welfare Society Port Elizabeth (AWS). She envisaged huge runs for the homeless dogs at the shelter, particularly Pit Bulls, for which she has a very special place in her heart. These areas would allow shelter dogs to spend time out of their kennels, running ‘free’. more

These incredible animals and the trained staff at Tom Ro Haven work together to help people in need. more

Amidst much excitement, the National Cat Action Taskforce – a feline welfare with a difference – was launched in Johannesburg in 2010. NCat is a little unusual. Rather than rescuing cats themselves, NCat helps existing cat-care organisations and individuals countrywide – from the biggest cities to the smallest towns – do more of what they are already doing. This is done by providing funding, distributed carefully and systematically, and by helping to provide access to important resources, such as information, veterinary services and cat traps. more
