There are many ways to help Adopt-a-Pet. You are invited to volunteer at our shelter.

We are inviting members of the public to volunteer at our shelter. For example, we need people to walk our dogs, interact with and socialise our puppies and cuddle our cats. If you are up to it we always need assistance with handiman work, tidying up, fixing kennels and other odd jobs. Donations of dry dog and dry cat food as well as cat litter, polar fleece blankets, moulded plastic dog beds (the dogs chew up the soft beds), kennels and stainless steel water and food bowls are ALWAYS URGENTLY NEEDED . Also leads and collars for dogs and cat collars.

In early September to celebrate the start of Spring we will have the official opening of our new cattery.

Attention cat lovers, in early September to celebrate the start of Spring, we will have the official opening of our new cattery. More details soon. In the meantime, why don't you view our beautiful cats up for adoption and give a rescued cat a second chance at life? We need to make room to rescue others whose lives are in danger and who are waiting in the wings. We can also be contacted on 021 465-4560 in the evenings between 19h00 and 20h30.

OUR WEBSITE IS UP AND RUNNING AGAIN

We apologise to our supporters for our website being down for about two weeks. The good news is that the website is up and running again and we will be uploading many new photos soon of beautiful dogs and cats needing responsible and caring owners. We can also be contacted in the evenings between 19h00 and 20h30 on 021 465-4560.

Thank you to all the kind people who are helping Adopt-a-Pet with our shelter that is finally starting to take shape.

It has been a real slog to get our new rented premises into shape since we moved to Schaapkraal in March 2014. But thanks to our amazing volunteers and staff, the place is starting to look so much better. Our dogs and cats are settling in well and we have a large selection of lovely dogs, puppies and cats for adoption. So we are looking forward to many phone calls from you looking to adopt a special animal. This will create space for us to rescue more destitute animals waiting for loving and responsible new custodians who will give them a second chance at life.

IS THERE AN ALTERNATIVE TO VIOLENCE? An incident on 20th March 2015.

YESTERDAY Adopt-a-Pet went to fetch a cat for sterilisation belonging to a kind person, who lives in a high risk area. After collecting the cat, someone pointed out a dog in a dreadful condition urgently in need of help. There was no owner in sight and as our assistant was putting the dog in our rescue van, a man appeared out of nowhere claiming to be the owner shouting that his dog was being stolen. Our assistant pointed out that his dog was at death's door from starvation and disease and admonished him for not looking after the dog.

The terrible tragedy of lost pets whose careless owners do not ensure they can be identified..

After the 10th phone call and email today, I have to sound off about those negligent pet owners who have lost their animals simply because they are too indifferent to ensure their animals can be identified. Just like a very young lost child, dogs and cats cannot speak and tell anyone who has found a lost animal who their owner is, where they live and why they ended up on the streets. They are plain and simply lost.

2014 IN RETROSPECT.

IT WOULD BE TRUTHFUL TO SAY THAT 2014 WAS A DIFFICULT YEAR, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE SUPPORT WE HAVE RECEIVED HAS BEEN OVERWHELMING TO SAY THE LEAST. THE MOVE TO OUR NEW PREMISES IN SCHAAPKRAAL WAS EXHAUSTING, BECAUSE THERE WAS SO LITTLE IN THE WAY OF INFRASTRUCTURE AVAILABLE. EVERY SINCE OUR MOVE IN MARCH THIS YEAR, WE HAVE CONTINUOUSLY BEEN PUTTING UP NEW KENNELS AND LARGE RUNS FOR OUR DOGS.
