June Newsletter 2017

Despite the fact that we are not a shelter, we always have dogs, cats, kittens and puppies looking for homes.  These animals are surrendered to us by people who are no longer able to care for them. And this month is no exception. However, all nine puppies, as well as Nina and her son Pepsi, and Teddy (the dog with the broken femur surrendered to be euthanized) have new moms and dads. Thank you to every person who opened their heart and home to our puppies and adopted and the biggest THANKS to everyone that shared our posts and spread the word, you made this possible.

Just a reminder, on the 15th of July these three wonderful ladies Gen Mash, Aydan Akule and Taryn Coperman will be running the Knysna Marathon on behalf of Animal Allies to help raise funds for our township animals. So we desperately ask for your help and support to reach the R10000 target that they have set. If each person receiving this newsletter donated R1 a kilometre we would not only reach this  target we would more than double it, making a lot of animals and us very happy J Please follow the link below to contribute towards this amazing cause.


We held two vaccination days on the 24th and the 25th of June. The first in Zandspruit and the second in Eskom/Lions Park. What great days. Together we vaccinated, dewormed and treated for ticks and fleas 470 dogs and 22 cats. Five animals were taken for further treatment and two puppies were surrendered to us and are now looking for forever homes. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who came to help, making it a lot easier for us. Thank you to Mondeor Homebake for the incredible cupcakes, Linda Scrace for all the flea and tick treatment, Catbox Pet Hyper and Yankee Candle for the pet food.

Winter is upon us bringing with it cold days and freezing nights. Our kennel drive is still on and we need kennels to help the poor in the townships. These animals have absolutely no shelter from the elements. If you have a kennel your dog is no longer using and is still in good condition, please consider giving it to a dog that has nothing. We will gladly collect it from you. You could also make a donation and we will buy the kennel on your behalf.

The ladies at Sandringham Gardens have been knitting blankets for pre-school children we support. On Thursday we took the ladies and their care givers to Zandspruit to hand out 75 blankets, bonnets and sweet packs. What an extremely moving experience to see their little faces beaming with joy when they received their parcels.

Please help us find the owners of this beautiful boy. He is either lost or has been dumped. He is completely tame and was “trapped” at Golden Harvest Park. He is not microchipped and we have since sterilised him. If you have lost a male tabby or know of any one that has, please contact us on 0765115451.


This month we took on 3 additional cases which, if it weren’t for our monthly donors, we would not have been able to do. Monthly donors allow us to take on additional cases with the confidence that we’ll still have the resources we need to continue our daily work. Your contribution is vital in our quest to make a difference in the township animals’ lives. If you are in a position to help, please complete the attached form and either scan and email or fax it to 0866055241. Thank you!!
