International Spay Day, 28 February 2016

The 28th of February marked the 22nd World Spay Day. 100’s of healthy animals are euthanised on a daily basis as there are just not enough homes. There are many reasons why animals end up in shelters or on the streets but over population is the one that we have the most power to control. Thank you to the many Vets who volunteered their services enabling us to convert World Spay “Day” to World Spay “Month”. Thanks to World Spay Day 2016 and to all the vets who contributed to making it a success 82 dogs and 4 cats won’t be adding to the animal overpopulation crisis. An extra thanks goes to Rivonia and Sunninghill who raised funds to sterilise an extra 3 dogs each and a huge thank you to Honeydew, Bryanston and Northcliff who continue to sterilise 2 dogs each every week throughout the year.

Animal Allies Golf Challenge, 13 October 2015

We held our second annual golf day on the 13th of October and wow what a success it was. The day raised an amazing R143 734.52 and paved the way for our new mobile clinic. It is our intention to put a fully equipped mobile clinic on the road next year. This clinic will enable us to treat, sterilize and attend to more animals in the townships and squatter camps where there is always a need for help. It will literally change the lives of so many animals and their guardians.

International Spay Day, 28 February 2015

World spay day shines a spotlight on the lifesaving power of sterilization and the need for affordable services, particularly in the underprivileged communities. The 28th of February marked the 21st World Spay Day, which falls on the last Tuesday of February. This year 27 veterinary clinics answered our plea to help the squatter camp animals, making 2015 our best year ever. On the 3rd of February the first three dogs were sterilized. We asked that each clinic sterilize three dogs free of charge. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of so many vets who offered weekly sterilizations. Also if any further treatment was needed no vet shied away and helped wherever they could.

Mandela Day, July 2014

We had a wonderful Mandela Day at the Honeydew Community Centre, where we catered for more than 250 kids. Nedbank Nicolway donated hotdogs and goodie bags, Charlmaine from Mondeor Home Bake donated cupcakes, Margaret from Spell Bound Puppets did a great puppet show, Ronnie Magic also did a wonderful dog show. After lunch the kids all had their faces painted. It was a huge success, thanks to everyone that contributed

Animal Allies Golf Challenge, 11 June 2014

We had our very first Golf Day at the Houghton Golf Course. It was a huge success with golfers teeing off at 10.30am and ending off the evening with dinner, prize giving and an auction.Thank you to all the golfers and to the sponsors for making this day possible.

International Spay Day, 25th February 2014

February 25th marked the 20th Annual Spay Day. This event was developed by the International Humane Society with the aim to create awareness about the importance of sterilization. In order to celebrate International Spay Day and recognise the importance of sterilizing animals especially in disadvantaged communities, Animal Allies is going on a 4-5 week campaign. Our objective is to sterilize as many animals in the Honeydew Squatter Camp as possible. Many thanks and appreciation to the Vets that have kindly offered their services for this worthy cause.

Honeydew Xmas Parties, 21 November 2013

We finished off the year with a visit to four crèches in the area, where we handed out Christmas presents and made new friends. Next year we will introduce an education program for the children teaching them basic animal care.

FirstRand Fundraiser, 28 November 2013

FirstRand organised an event to raise funds in order to purchase 200 spot-ons for our furry friends to help prevent ticks, fleas and worms. Employees from FirstRand, RMB and Fnb made donations and FirstRand matched what was donated.

East London Sterilization Campaign, October 2012

Liz Hillman who frequently goes down to Cinsta asked us to help with trapping. Despite the weather, it rained almost every day, we still managed to trap and sterilize 16 cats. Sterilizations were done through East London Spca. Thank you to Liz for caring and ensuring these cats won’t be contributing to the overpopulation problem.
