Read the first part of our new section under Community Work about our Humane Education Programmes

Please click on to our newly developed Community Work section, to try to analyse why the endemic cruelty to animals doesn't get any better and our attempts to search for and to implement possible solutions should be the goal towards which we should all collectively be working. Part one of our thoughts will shortly be uploaded under Community Work and we would appreciate your comments.

Fallow Deer

Fallow Deer

FALLOW DEER ON ROBBEN ISLAND TO BE EXTERMINATED AGAIN! LET US STOP THIS ECO-XENOPHOBIA ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Fallow Deer
AN article in the Cape Argus on 23 June 2017 has again raised the spectre which occurred between 2000 and 2009, when FALLOW DEER, rabbits and other creatures, were hunted and killed on Robben Island by the Robben Island Museum authorities and other like-minded organisations. This is scheduled to happen again with immediate effect and we have heard that two Fallow Deer will be shot every night until all 450 have been killed. According to an article in the press, the meat will be given to staff on the Island. As before, there has been no public participation.

HELP ADOPT-A-PET WITH DOG AND CAT FOOD. VERY URGENT.

PLEASE HELP! All our previous sources of dog and cat food donations have completely dried up as of today, 3 February 2017. This will be a tremendous blow to all animal organisations. We use 100kg of dog food a day at a cost of R1000,00 per day.

TREES also need protection

Readers may be surprised that we have included issues about trees on our website. Because Adopt-a-Pet cares about the plight of land animals, birds, marine animals, the environment, issues about global warming, the devastating increase in poaching, hunting and the loss of forests, the burgeoning crime, violence and the scourge of drugs are of enormous concern.

The Canis Aficanis Dog. Highly Recommended. Now recognised as a breed.

 The Canis Africanis (the original African dog) is highly recommended by Adopt-a-Pet where we have a large selection. These remarkable dogs have been recognised as a breed.  They have kind and even temperaments and are utterly devoted to their owners.

Bank details for Adopt-a-Pet. We would appreciate donations, however small, towards our rescued animals & Humane Education

 RUNNING an animal shelter is not easy, especially as we are  totally committed  to our  "pro life" policy. Although we have never claimed that we can rescue every animal whose life is in danger, whatever comes through our doors gets the best attention we can offer.  However, we do not believe in suffering and if an animal is terminally ill or is suffering incurable pain, on the opinion of the outstanding veterinarians who have been helping us since 1994, we do believe in euthanasia in the true sense of the
