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:…

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…

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.
