November 2018 in numbers

We had a good month as far as adoptions and vet bills are concerned! 😃We have really managed to get those bills down, mostly due to the new clinic. This is so encouraging, especially as donations are a bit low at the moment (it’s a problem all over due to the economy). Although we’re not quite up and running with the township sterilisations yet, we’re working on it and will hopefully be going full steam ahead in the new year. Of…

Thank you, Garden Cities

Thank you, Garden Cities

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts and on behalf of all the animals which need help, to Garden Cities! We are eternally grateful for our beautiful clinic in Greenville. (A little history) The folks at Garden Cities approached us in 2017 wanting to help. They had seen the need for the animals of the area with the expansion of Greenville alongside Fisantekraal and, knowing that this was the area in which we work, wanted to offer us a…

September 2018 in numbers

Our stats for September!  And it’s all possible because of YOU!  Vaccinations: We had a very busy month for vaccinations (mainly because of our rabies outreach in Klipheuwel) and our adoptions did much better! 11 animals found their happy homes.  Vet bills: As you can see, vet bills went up a bit, particularly the ‘drugs and vaccines’.  This includes things like pain treatments, vaccines and dewormers but also those necessary things no one thinks about but which all costs money like:…

FAW’s new clinic in Greenville

FAW’s new clinic in Greenville

One of our greatest dreams has come true with a gorgeous FAW clinic being built in Greenville (the new Fisantekraal low-cost housing extension). After 13 years working in Fisantekraal (since 2005), this is something we couldn’t even have dreamed would ever happen. 💙But it has! The amazing people at Garden Cities provided a building, custom-built to FAW’s needs, and Dr John Adam and Sr Karen Forsdick of Tygerberg Animal Hospital ensured that  SAVC standards were met. FAW volunteers worked very hard to get everything ready and our…
