September 2018 in numbers

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:…

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. To mark the day, on Saturday 30 September a group of volunteers from Fisantekraal Animal Welfare (FAW) and Tygerberg Animal Hospital (TAH), executed a rabies vaccination outreach to the impoverished community of Klipheuwel informal settlement. Unfortunately, although the Western Cape was considered a rabies-free…

August 2018 in numbers

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…

May 2018 figures

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.

World Rabies Day – 130 vaccinated in Klipheuwel outreach

World Rabies Day has just passed and, to ‘celebrate’, we did an outreach in Klipheuwel yesterday – and vaccinated 130 dogs and cats against this terrible disease! We tackled the squatter camp and adjoining Cloete Drive. The outreach was a FAW and Tygerberg Animal Hospital with support from Ruan Beneke, DA ward councillor for Klipheuwel. ——————————————– A big thank you goes to TAH and Ruan, but also to every one of the AWESOME volunteers who gave hours of their time to do…

Rescued: Sandy / Sky

Rescued: Sandy / 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, gained a bit of weight and came out of her shell, she really struggled with…

Rags to riches: Wollie the farmyard Maltese

Rags to riches: Wollie the farmyard Maltese

Wollie was uplifted from a farm and, although he was not abused or uncared for, a farmyard is simply not the place for a fluffy dog. Around the farm is lots of bush and, without keeping him clipped short all the time (which his owners simply cannot afford), his coat was constantly matted and dirty. He was also being bullied terribly by the other farm dogs, most of which were much bigger than he is. 😮 His owner, who is…
