Dogs

Please get in touch at adoptions@faw.za.org or WhatsApp 078 892 7892 or complete the application form here: ADOPTION APPLICATION

Adoption fee: R 850 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. Most of our dogs are in foster care, with the exception of 3, which are still at the shelter at Fallen Angels (location of dogs is noted on each post). 

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? If you have children, please read our article Should you get a puppy to grow up with your child?

Tag is a majestic gentleman with a strong will and a love of attention. He would enjoy an active home with lots happening as he is an intelligent dog who likes to be part of the action.

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.
