Sponsor a pet

When you sponsor an animal waiting for adoption, you make a huge difference. And it only costs R250 per month. 

Your sponsorship pays for basic health care and food. But it goes further than that. By covering the cost of caring for one of these animals, you allow us to look after them for as long as it takes to find a forever home. Most of the animals are up for adoption while some are in a ‘permanent’ foster situation so they are cared for in their last days, regardless of the cost – all because you are sponsoring them! Moreover, by sponsoring one of these ‘unwanted’ animals, you allow more funds to be directed to helping animals still living in the township. So you see, your R250 goes a very long way. 

Email adoptions@faw.za.org or WhatsApp 078 892 7892 if you’re interested in sponsoring a dog, or adopting or fostering one of them!

Use SPONSOR as a reference so that we know where to allocate the money. If you’re sponsoring a specific animal, please add their name to the reference. For example ‘SPONSOR Tag’. 

STEP 3: Help get your sponsored animal homed by sharing their details on your social media and helping to network them. 

Note: if you’re no longer able to sponsor, please let us know so that we can find another sponsor for the animal.
