Sponsor a pet

When you sponsor an animal waiting for adoption, you make a huge difference. 

Your sponsorship pays for basic health care and food. But it goes further than that. By covering the cost of caring for one of these animals, you allow us to look after them for as long as it takes to find a forever home. Most of the animals are up for adoption while some are in a ‘permanent’ foster situation so they are cared for in their last days, regardless of the cost – all because you are sponsoring them! Moreover, by sponsoring one of these ‘unwanted’ animals, you allow more funds to be directed to helping animals still living in the township. So you see, your money goes a very long way. 

Please email adoptions@faw.za.org or WhatsApp 078 892 7892 if you’re interested in sponsoring, adopting or fostering!


  1. Three ways to donate:
    EFT to our bank account
    Via PayFast’s secure online portal (credit card enabled, including international)
  2. Include a REFERENCE on your payment so that we know where to allocate the funds.
    Use SPONSOR and include the animal’s name/s if you’ve chosen to sponsor a specific pet (for example: SPONSOR Bobby).
  3. Let us know so we can thank you and send you a sponsorship certificate. If you’re happy with this, we will also put your name on the website as a sponsor (with your permission).

Note: if you’re no longer able to sponsor, please let us know so that we can find another sponsor for the animal.



Lucky animals with AWESOME sponsors!
