We provide financial assistance to pet owners who cannot afford the basic health care of their pets. We have a clinic every third Saturday of the month in the townships where pets are dipped, de-wormed and vaccinated by our volunteers. A qualified veterinarian checks the general health of these animals and treatment is provided when necessary. If no veterinarian is available at the clinic, animals in need of urgent medical care are transported to a veterinary clinic or the SPCA for treatment. During one clinic our volunteers tend to approximately 150 animals. In most cases these pet owners do not have transport and if a pet gets sick/injured, they do not have the means to get the animal the help it so desperately needs. We therefore arrange for the pet to be transported to a veterinary clinic or the SPCA and pay for the treatment. Cruelty to animals often happens due to a lack of knowledge. To address this problem, we educate pet owners on how to properly care for their pets and explain why it is so important that their pets always have food, clean water and shelter against the elements. In an effort to address the pet over-population problem and prevent unwanted litters of puppies and kittens, we sterilize as many dogs and cats as possible.
