Kitty and Puppy Haven is a pro-life sanctuary started in 2000 with the sole purpose of rescuing neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Most of our cases originate from veterinary practices, low income areas, other welfare organizations (that work in the townships and squatter-camps) or from emergency rescues. While animal rescue and rehabilitation is a priority, educating people on correct animal care is critical.
We will not euthanase any animals if they can be healed and have a healthy, pain free, happy life. As most animals come from disadvantaged backgrounds, many require extensive veterinary care. Every animal also receives standard health care – vaccinations, de-worming, flea control and sterilisation. Our monthly veterinary bills average R40,000 - R50,000 per month.
To provide the animals in our care with the best medical attention, dietary requirements and above all love and attention while we nurse them back to health. We ensure that all of these animals are healthy and sterilised. All of our animals are placed in suitable, loving homes. We are alleviating suffering, saving lives and ensuring that these animals cannot breed and produce more offspring.
In June 2010 we started our ALEX PROJECT - a programme initially dedicated to Alexandra Township, which now includes many other squatter camps in the Gauteng area.
In the townships we:
• hand out free food
• offer advice on pet care
• carry out sterilisations
• offer vaccinations and de-worming
• rescue abandoned, neglected or orphaned animals
Visit the sanctuary to complete the adoption application form and meet the animals. Once a booking is made, a home check is completed and the animal is sterilised before being collected.
