Thank you, TAH

Thank you, TAH

A very important Friend of FAW: Tygerberg Animal Hospital, particularly Bellville and Plein Street. They do an immense amount to help us with affordable medical care and – very importantly – sterilisations! In fact, part of the reason why we did so many sterilisations last year is thanks to TAH who offer us weekly steris for township animals at a low price. The TAH staff work very hard and are dedicated to helping the animals. They have gone out of…

Thank you SUPERSPAR Aurora

Thank you SUPERSPAR Aurora

A big thank you goes to the SuperSPAR in Aurora, Durbanville for allowing us to have a trolley at their store for donations of pet food! It really makes a huge difference. And, to the shoppers, we say another big thank you – for donating SO generously throughout the year. We are so blessed to get given lots of much-needed dog and cat food, and other goodies, via this trolley. THANK YOU! You really have made a difference.

Thank you, Dr Lauren Immelman

Thank you, Dr Lauren Immelman

As we start gearing up for the year ahead, we’ve had to bid farewell to our first ever ‘Zuma year’ vet: Lauren Immelman. Lauren joined us at our containers at the beginning of 2016 and helped so much with vaccinating, checking over animals, assisting with injuries and illnesses, and more, and doing sterilisations at TAH. THANK YOU, Lauren, for your wonderful contribution to FAW and the furkids you helped (like Blackie here, who had been attacked by another dog). <3…

FAW shop THANK YOU!

We are eternally grateful to every one of you who have donated items for our shop; many of you do so on an ongoing basis and even collect from friends and family for us. THANK YOU!

Thank you, Grande Roche Hotel

Thank you, Grande Roche Hotel

A HUGE thank you to Grande Roche Hotel, and Christo & Kobus and Desmond Wells,¬†for their awesome donation of R4000, raised through their fab Mandela Day concert in aid of FAW and Little Fighters Cancer Trust. We are so grateful – and know just where the funds will be going (watch this space, all – something exciting coming soon!). The show was really lovely (and one of our volunteers was lucky enough to be able to attend) and we hope…

‘Dog meets girl’ photoshoot raised money for kennels

‘Dog meets girl’ photoshoot raised money for kennels

THANK YOU to Shannon and Annalize for organising not one but TWO photoshoots, and raised R1000 towards much-needed kennels! (And, of course, thank you to the people and their pooches who went too!)                    

We’ve had a makeover!

We’ve had a makeover!

Following a number of break-ins and other nasty acts of vandalism, we realised that we had to make our ‘home base’ in Fisantekraal more secure. It also desperately needed a facelift as graffiti was spreading… This may seem unimportant, but, we believe that it’s hard to expect respect from anybody when you’re surrounded by filthy phrases and ‘drawings’, not to mention it being very unpleasant for our volunteers to work there and for any decent person to bring their animals…

Fencing: Steel & Pipes for Africa (& anonymous donor) to the rescue!

Fencing: Steel & Pipes for Africa (& anonymous donor) to the rescue!

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to a generous donation from an anonymous sponsor and the kindness of the awesome Dean Gouvea of Steel and Pipes for Africa who supplied the materials and did an absolutely superb job building the ‘cage’ fence we so desperately needed. We were getting broken into and our containers vandalised increasingly. We now have strong fencing which encloses the area, and metal cages to protect the treatment room window and the solar water…
