May Newsletter 2017

Our mission is to improve the lives of as many animals as possible. We do this by providing food, shelter and medical treatment, as well as sterilizations. These sterilizations are not limited to the township animals but include feral cats and suburban animals.

Fortunately, due to our wonderful supporters, we are able to continue our work and thank everyone who has contributed in one way or another.

Teddy has made a remarkable recovery. She was the dog hit by a car and surrendered to us to be euthanized, and yes the thought did cross our minds, but the twinkle in Teddy’s eye and her wagging tail told us she wasn’t ready to cross the Rainbow Bridge. An appeal on Facebook brought in enough funds to pay for her operation and aftercare and her physiotherapy will be done at no charge. She has even found a forever home and will be discharged from Oaklands Veterinary Clinic next week. Good luck Teddy you really deserved a second chance and thank you all who kindly donated to ensure that she got one.

We have recently been joined, in Katlehong, by four State vets. Once a week we meet and they assist with treating, dipping and vaccinating the animals. They are also performing two sterilizations a week for us. Thank you Gillian, Heidi, Pamela and Lindsay for volunteering your time and giving the animals in Katlehong a new leash on life.


Gen Nash, Aydan Akule & Taryn Copeman will be running the Knysna Marathon and Animal Allies is the beneficiary. Please support these amazing ladies by making a donation. All monies raised will be used for sterilizations. As we are all aware, this is the only way we are going to combat the overpopulation crisis. Please follow the link below.

On the 24th and 25th of June we will be holding our next vaccination days, the 24th in Zandspruit Informal Settlement and the 25th in the Eskom Informal Settlement. We will be vaccinating, deworming, spraying for ticks and fleas, and handing out buckets of food, as well as collars and leashes. This is where you come in. We desperately need your help in order to make both days a success. We need donations of food, kennels, tick and flea control, collars and leashes and of course your time 🙂 If you are able to help, please contact us on 076 511 5451. Thank you!!

Just when we thought we had homed all our surrendered puppies, along came another litter of five beauties. These puppies are now 6 weeks old and are desperately looking for forever homes. They are just too cute and too gorgeous for you not to want!!! Please share with friends and family and if you are looking to adopt, look no further. An adoption fee and home check apply.
