 GLOBALGIVING REPORT – FEBRUARY 2023

HELP ALLEVIATE MISERY FOR ANIMALS IN CAPE TOWN

 Greetings Dear Friends and Supporters on the GlobalGiving Platform

 It’s the start of another year, a year in which TEARS Animal Rescue is looking to increase its footprint in the vulnerable communities we serve, including the densely populated settlement of Vrygrond (Capricorn) and surrounding areas.

 Sterilisation is key, to helping reduce the overwhelming burden of animal overpopulation, and the resultant misery, suffering, and abuse endured by tens of thousands of unwanted animals in impoverished communities.  Our focus is on sterilisation, and annually we sterilise in excess of 6 000 companion animals overall, over and above the many other services we provide for needy animals.   Vital work is being conducted by TEARS, as we strive to eradicate animal illness, suffering, and homelessness by curtailing the indiscriminate breeding that leads to overpopulation in most low-income communities. People and animals are left at risk through the spread of zoonoses (infectious diseases that are transmitted between species, from animals to humans, such as giardia (causing diarrhoea), ringworm, intestinal worms, scabies, rabies, plus other diseases, carried by ticks and fleas, which affect people).

 These are the daily realities for at-risk pet owners and welfare beneficiaries that TEARS Animal Rescue supports:

  •  They don’t have any disposable income to spend on food, healthcare, or veterinary care for their animals
  • They live in areas where there are no veterinary facilities for animals, and no money or transport to take animals to a commercial vet
  • The high ratio of unsterilised and unvaccinated animals leads to the outbreak of lethal animal viral diseases like Canine Distemper Virus, Parvo Virus in dogs and Feline Panleukopenia in cats that can extend beyond the original contamination area to infect other communities and pets
  • There is a high incidence of tick and flea-related illnesses in pets, including Ehrlichia (tick-bite fever), biliary (tick-fever), anaemia, roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms – which are all potentially life-threatening to animals.

The provision of vital healthcare support to vulnerable companion animals directly and tangibly improves the quality of life of pet owners, their families, and other at-risk members of the wider community.

During 2022, TEARS Animal Rescue raised a total of US$850.26 on the GlobalGiving Platform, and we are most grateful to our compassionate donors who, over the past three years since we first registered our Project, have contributed so generously to our cause via the GlobalGiving Platform and express our deepest appreciation for your interest and your support.  It is you, the donor, who makes our work possible, and we thank you for partnering with us and helping us to break the cycle of suffering and enabling us to make a difference in the lives of those creatures who have no voice, and who rely on us, through your contributions, to uplift their lives, and turn tears of sadness to tears of joy.

With sincere appreciation and heartfelt thanks for your caring.

Warm regards and many blessings
