We look forward to hearing from you! Please get in touch during office hours and, if we can’t answer immediately, kindly leave a detailed message or WhatsApp us and we will get back to you. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding. Please bear in mind that we aren’t an animal shelter and don’t keep animals on site, and we unfortunately cannot collect strays. 

Important: Adoptable animals are not at our Fisantekraal premises. Most are in private foster care and a small handful are at Uitsig ARC near Melkbos. Please contact us to arrange a meeting. Thank you!
