The lucky, lucky furkids to find their forever homes!   SPECIAL ADOPTION: SANDY now SKY Sandy had a horrible start in life – given by a Boerboel breeder (we assume because she turned out to not be a 100% Boerboel) to someone who we know doesn’t look after their animals, and then chained up and neglected. She was skin and bone when we uplifted her. She went to our friends at UARC to be rehabbed and, although she did well…

This month’s lucky ones!     Special adoption: BAXTER Baxter and his brother, Rupert, were rescued from atrocious circumstances in 2014, where Baxter was short-chained to a rusty trailer, in the blazing heat, starved, and ignored. With loads of TLC from Uitsig ARC, where he stayed since then, Baxter has blossomed into a charming little gentleman. And then we waited…and waited… For over 2 long years, Baxter sat waiting for his forever home. He went from skin and bone to…

Kenna Kenna, a very special kitten, was the first to be adopted this month. She is a very special kitten: we rescued Kenna and her siblings from Fisantekraal squatter camp; Kenna had been burned with boiling water and lost most of the fur on her right side. She was checked by the vet and given pain medicine so it didn’t hurt, and then she and her brothers and sister were off to foster mom. Every day, a few times a…

The first month of 2017 has seen plenty of youngsters – FAWbabies, we call them – finding their forever homes! SPECIAL ADOPTEES Bennie – from backyard loneliness to beloved family member (with video!) We are overjoyed that this sunny-natured, happy-go-lucky little dog has finally found a wonderful forever home. Before he was uplifted, Bennie spent his life chained to a fence in a backyard; he never got any attention and stood in the mud in winter and blazing sun in…

Phoenix’s INCREDIBLE story

Phoenix’s INCREDIBLE story

After 4 years of waiting, our darling Phoenix was adopted. But it was an extra-special adoption… This is no ordinary home: Phoenix is one of 4 rescue doggies who live in a very special care facility which is home to 35 Alzheimers patients. Emsie, who runs the home, has a few rescue dogs herself and knows how fantastic they can be; she says that the difference these dogs make to the residents is phenomenal. Phoenix is now one of these special…

An amazing story of one kitten’s survival

An amazing story of one kitten’s survival

Liam (which means ‘strong fighter’) is a very, very special little guy. He had a tragic start in life and survived against all odds. On the morning of 4 October, one of our volunteers was contacted by her housekeeper; the lady’s kind-hearted husband had rescued a tiny kitten in Elsie’s River. His mom and siblings had been killed (allegedly by kids) that night. 🙁 How he escaped this terrible fate, we don’t know, but then he had to survive the…
