WOODROCK BELIEVES THAT EACH ANIMAL DESERVES A LOVING, STABLE "FOREVER HOME" OUR GOAL Our goal is to ensure a sustainable lifelong relationship between the new owner and its newly acquired furry friend. Every animal deserves a second chance and thus every effort is made to match the most suitable rescue to the most suitable home, thereby minimising the chances of having to re-home again, if it doesn’t work out. WHAT WE DO We provide assistance to unfortunate, homeless, abused, neglected, stray, injured, ill, geriatric and unwanted animals that would otherwise have miserable lives and premature deaths. The rescue centre provides food, necessary medical care such as inoculations, vaccinations, sterilizations etc. and preventative medicine including deworming, flea and tick dips etc. OUR PEOPLE Nicholas and Estelle, the founders, are extremely focused on their goal and their passion and drive have afforded their vision to become a reality. Woodrock Animal Rescue is a registered non – profit organisation. Together with amazing staff and ongoing community support, Woodrock have been able to make a difference. Nicholas will go above and beyond the call of duty to save a dog. Estelle is known for her bulldog approach and is unflinchingly uncompromising when faced with an animal in need.

The Wet Nose Animal Rescue Center is a Right to Life animal shelter that rescues, rehabilitates and then re-homes abused, abandoned and neglected animals. Right to Life means that no animal is put to sleep, unless it is in severe suffering and cannot be saved. Every animal is loved and cared for until a loving home is found for it, no matter how long it takes. The dogs are walked daily and taken to exercise runs, so that they have a good quality of life, and get exercise during their stay with us. The cats live in beautiful catteries where they are spoiled with love and toys, and anything their little heart’s desire. Our staff are well trained to care for the animals in their care and to treat every animal with dignity and respect. Every member of staff has a true passion for animals and not one of the 40 staff members think of their work as just a job. This mindset ensures that our animals are happy and content – because every life is precious! Wet Nose does not receive any government or municipal funding of any kind and relies on the animal loving public for its survival. We currently care for around 350 animals, mostly dogs and cats, but also horses, donkeys, emu’s etc. We believe that every animal deserves a second chance to love and be loved, which is why we fight for them, laugh and cry with them, and try to make sure that the joy outweighs the heartache

Vervet Monkey Foundation
Tel: 083 454 5381
TZANEEN 0850 PLOT 35 Californina
In 1989 the plight of the vervet monkey species in South Africa first came to light when an orphaned baby vervet monkey, only hours old was discovered. Enquiries to recognised authorities concerning the fate of such primates revealed that there were no facilities to provide for its care and welfare, instead they were told to kill the monkey because, such animals were regarded as vermin. As environmentalists and humanitarians, they saw that the solution to this problem did not lie in euthanasing these orphaned primates but rather, the need for an organisation to provide a sanctuary for them and to holistically investigate what was in fact happening to this indigenous primate of South Africa.

We reserve the right to turn down an offer of adoption, should the circumstances and the kitten not coincide. We also offer assistance to those who are needing foster/forever homes for their kittens by networking their pleas on our page and helping where possible.

Sunset Dr, Krugersdorp, 1739, South Africa
Husky Rescue Southern Africa is a non-profit organisation that specialises in the rescue and re-homing of huskies and other Nordic breeds of dogs. With the popularity of the Siberian, Malamute and other Nordic breeds increasing over the last couple of years we have found a dramatic increase in the number of lost and abandoned dogs. Families have seen movies like Balto and Eight Below and dog lovers are captured by the beautiful white coats and gorgeous blue eyes and puppies were purchased by the dozen. An increase in demand results in an increase of supply and as a result irresponsible backyard breeders have flooded neighbourhoods with puppies without educating people on the very specific needs of these breeds of dogs. Families have found themselves unable or unwilling to accommodate the needs of the dogs and dogs are found roaming the streets, abandoned or even worse; abused. Hence the need for an organisation like ours. It has become evident that people are ill-informed and ignorant to the very specific needs of the breed. To compound the issue of ignorance, back-yard breeding has increased the number of husky puppies available to the public and husky owners are purchasing pets with bad bloodlines and genetic defects.
