Animal Welfare Organizations in South Africa do tremendous work in looking after our neglected, abandoned and abused animals. 

 

With so many animals abandoned and without homes, these organizations seek to rehome, rehabilitate and rescue animals. It is a thankless job and most rescue organizations and animal shelters are self funded.

 

Most shelters accept all animals that are brought in. They also usually run a 24-hour service to deal with the many cases of cruelty and neglect which are reported.

 

Please donate and help where you can - they are the voices for those who don't have voices.

 

Why not adopt a dog from an animal shelter? Shelters are filled to the brim with unwanted animals who would make a great addition to your household. You will find dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds. There are also many beautiful cats looking for homes.
