The Beginning

During the early days FAW volunteers operated from donated shipping containers.

These were used for:

Vaccinations / de-worming
Treating minor injuries
Bathing / dipping
Subsidized food program
2nd hand shop

And they used their own vehicles to transport animals to and from local vets for treatment / sterilizations

How We Grew

In 2008 FAW received it’s first vehicle donated by Marchig Animal Welfare Trust and later a second vehicle donated by the Dangwen Trust and since then a replacement vehicle donated by Tygerberg Rotary, all branded by Vega Graphics.

FAW continued to grow with the help of volunteers and local vets.

With the new Garden Cities Housing Development of Greenville, CGC offered a house to FAW to be used as an Animal Welfare Clinic.

With the help of Dr John Adam and Sr. Karen Forsdick of TAH and the FAW volunteers the clinic was built to SAVC standards (South African Veterinary Council)

The FAW Clinic was officially opened in October 2018.

We are fortunate enough to have had CCS vets helping since 2017

In Conclusion
