We’re excited to hear from you and help you choose a new family member! Please visit the categories to see our animals or contact us for advice. 

Important: Adoptable animals are not at our Fisantekraal premises. Most stay at Uitsig ARC, while some are in private foster care. Please contact us to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

All adoptions are subject to a basic home check and adoption fee.


A home visit is conducted to ensure that the dog or cat is suited to your home. It is standard procedure, and nothing to worry about! This is to ensure that the animal will fit in and that it is going to be a safe, happy environment. Find out more: Adoption procedure.
