THANK YOU to each one of you who made it possible to help the animals in need for another year! Every single dog, cat, terrapin, frog, tortoise, rabbits and bird helped by FAW is thanks to YOU! 🐶🐱🐰🐸🐦🐢 A big thank you goes to the sponsors of our FAWbies (animals awaiting adoptions). <3 For the first time ever, ALL our fees for the month were covered by you – plus a little extra from the kind-hearted sponsors who donated more for Christmas. 🎄This makes…

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…

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:…

Klipheuwel Vaccination Outreach

Klipheuwel Vaccination Outreach

Press release: Fisantekraal Animal Welfare vaccinates Klipheuwel animals in need Friday 29 September 2018 marked World Rabies Day, an international awareness day aimed at educating the public about the need to vaccinate animals against this terrible disease.

Unfortunately, although the Western Cape was considered a rabies-free…

Our stats for the month of August. 🙂 None of this is possible without YOU, our supporters, sponsors and donors. Thank you – you make a difference. <3 As you can see, our sterilisations number has gone up – yippee! 🕺Every one done is one that won’t be having more pups or kittens that end up breeding and/or landing up in a bad situation. We placed 15 kennels for lucky dogs, most of which were donated via Purple Kennel Project – Cape Town – thank you…

July 2018 in numbers

THANK YOU to each and every one of you who donate to FAW to help the animals. We are entirely funded by donations which means that, without you, none of the animals would have been helped. You make the difference! <3 🐶🐱   You will notice that vaccinations have decreased from last month – this is typical during winter, partly because the cold makes people stay home instead of come to see us with their pets, but also because there…

June 2018 in numbers

A huge thank you to each and every person who donated, be it funds, items for the shop, kennels, their time, and their sharing and caring – you make the difference. Kennels We delivered 39 kennels in June – most of which came from Purple Kennel Project – Cape Town​ donations, some donated funds so we could have large kennels made (which are often shared by more than one dog!) and some also donated 2nd-hand kennels. THANK YOU soooo much…

YOU are the ones who keep things going. Aside from these stats, there are so many animals that require all sorts of help – a bit of antiseptic here, a little flea treatment there, bowls of food dished out and the many, many conversations had. There’s no way of including all those but just know that it happens and it does create change. Thank you to every single volunteer who does this hard work and to YOU, our supporters.
