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.

A GRATEFUL THANK YOU TO OUR WONDERFUL SUPPORTERS, JULY 2014

ADOPT-A-PET IS TRULY BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH WONDERFUL SUPPORTERS TO HELP US IN OUR NEW, AS YET INCOMPLETE SHELTER. THIS HELPS US TO USE OUR LIMITED FUNDS TO STERILISE AND TREAT DESTITUTE ANIMALS WHICH ARE RESCUED FROM CERTAIN DEATH. PLEASE KEEP THE DONATIONS COMINNG IN. FOR EXAMPLE: GREAT NEWS!!! ON 5 JULY 2014, LYNN AND MARK TURNED UP AT OUR ADOPT-A-PET PROMOTION AT STARKE AYRES GARDEN CENTRE IN SUNNINGDALE WITH BAGS AND BAGS OF NEW POLAR FLEECE BLANKETS TO KEEP OUR CATS AND DOGS WARM DURING THIS BITTERLY COLD SPELL.

15 JUNE 2014. BIG PROGRESS AT ADOPT-A-PET. YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US IN CREATING A VERY SPECIAL PLACE

WE ARE HAPPY TO REPORT THAT MANY OF OUR NEW LARGE KENNELS AND EXERCISE AREAS ARE UP AND RUNNING.THE DOGS APPEAR TO BE VERY HAPPY IN THEIR NEW SURROUNDINGS AND ARE ALERT AND INTERESTED IN THEIR NEW ENVIRONMENT. OUR LANDLORD HAS PROIVDED TREES FOR OUR KENNELS AND FOR THE LENGTH OF OUR DRIVEWAY WHICH WILL CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS PROVIDING SHADE IN THE SUMMER MONTHS. WE ARE HEARTENED BY THE POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC AND FROM OUR SUPPORTERS ABOUT THE ACHIEVEMENTS AT OUR NEW SHELTER IN SUCH A SHORT TIME.

ADOPT-A-PET IS SETTLING INTO ITS NEW PREMISES

ADOPT-A-PET IS SETTLING INTO ITS NEW PREMISES SINCE OUR DIFFICULT MOVE AT THE END OF FEBRUARY. THE KENNELS AND RUNS ARE TAKING SHAPE AND WE ARE RACING TO COMPLETE THEM BEFORE THE RAINS START. WE HAVE BEEN VERY ENCOURAGED BY THE MANY ANIMALS WHO HAVE BEEN ADOPTED SINCE WE MOVED IN - PEOPLE SEEM VERY KEEN TO VISIT OUR NEW PLACE AND WE ARE HAPPY THAT THE DOGS AND CATS HAVE MUCH LARGER KENNELS AND EXERCISE AREAS THAN THOSE IN MILNERTON WHICH WE HAD LONG OUTGROWN.

ADOPT-A-PET (barely) SURVIVED ITS MOVE TO NEW PREMISES

HAVING (BARELY ) SURVIVED OUR RELOCATION TO NEW PREMISES, WE WOULD LIKE TO ADVISE ANYONE WHO MAY BE CONSIDERING MOVING, TO ASK YOURSELVES IF IT IS A GOOD IDEA. ADOPT-A-PET'S MOVE TO NEW PREMISES WAS VERY VERY DIFFICULT, BUT WE MADE IT AND ARE NOW VERY BUSY TRYING TO STRAIGHTEN OUT EVERYTHING. THE REMOVAL TRUCKS JUST DUMPED EVERYTHING WHEREVER THERE WAS AN OPEN SPACE AND AT THE SAME TIME WE WERE PUTTING UP RUNS AND KENNELS FOR THE DOGS AND TRYING TO CONVERT A SHED INTO A CATTERY AND AN OFFICE.

COUNTDOWN TO OUR MOVE TO NEW PREMISES 15 DAYS TO GO AND SO MUCH STILL TO DO

ADOPT-A-PET HAS 15 DAYS LEFT TO RELOCATE TO OUR NEW PREMISES (ADDRESS STILL TO BE ANNOUNCED). IT HAS BEEN ONE OF OUR MOST DIFFICULT TIMES, BUT WE ARE GETTING THERE. WE HAVE ALREADY RELOCATED 14 DOGS AND ARE BUSY ERECTING EXERCISE RUNS. OUR CATTERY WILL BE READY IN ONE WEEK. THEREAFTER WE WILL BE DISMANTLING OUR WIRE ENCLOSURES AND WENDY HOUSES AT OUR MILNERTON SHELTER AND WILL USE THE SAME MATERIALS AT THE NEW VENUE.
