PETS-Logo"Rescuing one dog may not change the world, but for that dog, their world is changed forever." ~ unknown

PETS is a non-profit, pro-active, pro-life animal rescue organisation, We are run by a group of members that still have to work full time and is indebted to all our wonderful foster mom's, and families and supporters. Without your support structure, only a small amount of what we do today would be possible. We do not sit around and wait for animals in need to come to us, instead we spend every free minute we have (much to the distress of our husband’s) in the townships LOOKING for the animals that need help. We believe this is making a huge difference and the fact that the community sees us there on such a regular basis they are caring for their animals better as they know we give them hell if the don't. We stress the importance of fresh water and food and good care.

We believe in foster care because it enables the animal to become part of a loving and caring family immediately which enables it to feel safe, loved and nurtured. In these environments the animals flourish far quicker than they would have in a kennel situation. Our foster's are introduced to other animals, cats, dogs and kiddies to try and make them well adapted to all. As most of our animals are rescue out of horrible conditions in townships, some do come with intense fear and uncertainty, and some take longer to 'defrost' than others, but we have had a 100% success rate thus far! Our main concern is sterilization in Townships and we are trying to raise funds to have 1000 animals done ASAP!

We strive to relieve pain and suffering in impoverished areas, through love, care, feeding, medicating, sterilizing, educating the abused, neglected and even worse forgotten animals in the world.

To summarize, our activities regarding pet empowerment include the following:

  • Food / feeding
  • Sterilisation
  • Vet Care (medication, de-worming, dipping, inoculations, tick & flee treatment, etc.)
  • Emergencies (operations, stitches, blood tests, cancer treatment, euthanasia (only in extreme cases of pain or sickness), etc.)
  • Provision of shelter
  • Rescuing & rehoming
  • Education of children & adults regarding pet-care
  • Fundraising to facilitate all our activities

Adoption Process
There is an extensive adoption form which needs to be filled in and approved by at least two members. We interview the people telephonically and in person when they come to meet the various animals. And we keep in contact for at least the first 6 months to make sure that all necessary procedures are done.

Adoption Fees
R350 for dogs and puppies ; R100 for kittens ; R150 for cats

Puppies and kittens have their first innoculation with us. We can also sterilise the animal for people at 6 months for R330 (space permitting).
