Adoption fee: R 850 per dog – INCLUDES vet check, microchipping, deworming and vaccinations up to date of adoption, and  sterilisation at 6 months. All adoptions are subject to a home check. Our dogs are in foster care in a friendly, sociable home environment, which supports their social skills and training.

Can’t adopt? Dogs also need FOSTERS and it does not cost a fee to foster. You look after them temporarily until a forever home is found. Or why not SPONSOR a pet while it waits for a home?

Dusty

Dusty is a friendly guy who would love a home where he can be left to do his thing (pottering around the garden, sniffing mole hills, etc.), and get treats and attention when you’re around. Loves biscuits! He doesn’t mind being at home while you’re off at work. He will be fine as an only dog if you give him plenty to do.

Needs a calm home and basic training but will respond very well as he is eager to please. Dusty has been waiting since February 2015 and will need an understanding home to help him become a part of normal civilian life.
