Summary

Uncontrolled pet populations result in untold suffering to the thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens being born every single day. This project will see the sterilisation of 1000 animals, making you a proactive partner in the fight against animal cruelty. It will also aid community health in impoverished areas by preventing the transmission of zoonotic diseases between sick animals and humans.

Challenge

South African pet populations are uncontrolled. Many animals are being left to breed indiscriminately resulting in untold suffering to the many unwanted puppies and kittens that are being born daily. Unwanted animals get no primary veterinary treatments to prevent dreaded disease and no ecto/endo parasite control. Aside from the obvious neglect they suffer and the often cruel treatment they are subjected to, these animals pose a risk to public health via zoonotic disease transmission.

Solution

Sterilisation is one of only two tools we have at our disposal to actively prevent cruelty to animals. If unwanted puppies and kittens are not being born, they cannot suffer as a result of human neglect or intentional cruelty. Our mobile clinics that operate in disadvantaged areas serve to educate on the benefits of sterilisation and provide primary veterinary treatments to the animals in these areas. Animals from these areas are brought to our animal hospital for sterilisation.

Long-Term Impact

Sterilisation decreases the burden on already over-crowded animal shelters, limits the financial burden for animal welfare and humanely controls pet populations resulting in healthier communities and a reduction in animal cruelty cases.
