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.

THE YOUNG CHILDREN WHO TORTURED FREEWAY COULD TURN OUT TO BE TOMORROW'S CRIMINALS

GOOD NEWS!!! FREEWAY WHO HAS BEEN RENAMED ROXO BY HIS NEW OWNER WHO LIVES IN TABLE VIEW, HAS FOUND HIS DREAM HOME. READ MORE UNDER "DOGS," BY THE WAY, FREEWAY, SORRY ROXO IS A BOY, HE SLEPT FOR 11 HOURS AFTER HE ARRIVED IN HIS NEW HOME AND NOW FOLLOWS HIS NEW OWNER EVERYWHERE. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE SUPPORTERS OF OUR WEBSITE FOR RESPONDING TO OUR PLEA TO FIND FREEWAY A NEW HOME. WE HAD SEVERAL SUITABLE NEW OWNERS FOR FREEWAY, BUT HE COULD ONLY BE ADOPTED OUT ONCE.

URGENT UPDATE: 8 FEBRUARY 2014: RE FINDING A NEW HOME FOR ADOPT-A-PET'S RESCUE SHELTER

8 FEBRUARY 2014 UPDATE: IT HAS BEEN A TOUGH FEW WEEKS AT ADOPT-A-PET AFTER WE WERE GIVEN NOTICE BY OUR LANDLORD TO VACATE THE PREMISES WE HAVE OCCUPIED FOR 12 YEARS. DURING THE "SILLY SEASON" NOBODY WAS INTERESTED TO ASSIST US FIND NEW PREMISES, NOW ON 8 FEBRUARY 2014, WE HAVE FOUND TEMPORARY PREMISES AND ARE WORKING OUR GUTS OUT TO BUILD NEW EXERCISE AREAS FOR OUR BELOVED DOGS AND TO PROVIDE A SANCTUARY FOR OUR CATS BEFORE THE DEADLINE OF 28 FEBRUARY.

PLEASE DONATE A BAG OF CAT AND DOG FOOD ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR ANIMALS IN SWEET HOME FARM PHILIPPI

ADOPT-A-PET HAS BEEN HELPING ANIMALS IN SWEET HOME FARM, PHILIPPI SINCE JULY 2001. WE HAVE A VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COMMUNITY AND WE ARE INVOLVED WITH AN ONGOING INOCULATION, DE-WORMING AND STERILISATION PROGRAMME IN THIS INFORMAL SETTLEMENT. MANY PEOPLE ARE UNEMPLOYED, BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR PETS. WHILE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE BATTLE TO MAKE ENDS MEET, THEY SHARE THE LITTLE THEY HAVE WITH THEIR ANIMALS. WE ARE A APPEALING TO THE PUBLIC TO DONATE A MONTHLY BAG OF FOOD FOR THESE DOGS AND CATS WHOSE OWNERS CANNOT MANAGE TO FEED THEM EVERY DAY.
