Meet Our Furry Fluffballs

  • Macey & her 5 kittens

    Rescued from a township by one of our kennel assistants who live there. A concerned woman ran up with a box consisting of Mommy and 5 kittens, four males and one female asking for help to sterilise and return the mother and one male kitten. They were very undernourished, many were underweight and had hardly any hair. They were hand fed with kitten milk because their mom Macey didn't have enough milk to feed all of them. They are now flourishing and gaining weight and are approximately 7 weeks old. They can start to be adopted after 8 weeks. Please open your heart and homes to them. Phone Cicely of Adopt-a-Pet on 021 465-4560 between 10 am and 7 pm. Please note: We do not adopt out single kittens. The new owners would either need to have a compatible cat/kitten already or adopt two kittens. Children must be 6 years or older.

Then suddenly Shelley stopped coming and we were all so worried that she may have died, but thankfully, Shelley turned up again and the kind lady brought her to our shelter.

  • Michele

    Adopt-a-Pet was informed 2 weeks ago about a little stray female puppy by a very kind and concerned lady living in Mitchell's Plain. The puppy was roaming the streets in search of food and when we said the puppy was welcome to come to our shelter, the puppy suddenly disappeared for about a week and we thought she might have died. We were overjoyed when the puppy reappeared yesterday and was brought immediately to us. We have called her Michele, she is somewhat neglected and very sweet. She will soon blossom in a loving home with lots of TLC and a good diet. She is longing for a loving and responsible new owner, where she will sleep indoors and will have a compatible doggy companion. Children must be 6 years or older and if you have a swimming pool, it would have to be securely fenced. Phone Cicely on 021 465-4560 between 10am-7pm or leave a message.
