What you need to know before adopting a pet:

Choosing a pet is a big responsibility and a long-term commitment. Remember your adopted friend will require food, water, exercise, veterinarian care as well as your love and attention.

Visit the Animal Welfare Kennels and see which dog/cat appeals to you and from whom you get a warm feeling. Make sure that the animal will fit into your lifestyle  e.g. do not choose a big dog if you are unable to take it for long walks and you do not have a big space for it to live.

  • Once you have made your choice, if you have a dog at home bring it¬†in to meet its prospective companion (if you are choosing another dog).It is important that they meet on neutral territory first and you can get an idea of how they are going to interact. (to speed things up you can bring your dog when you first visit the kennels).
  • If you choose a dog, once the paperwork is completed, an Inspector will call to make a time to visit your home to see that it is secure and will provide our dog(s) with a suitable environment to live in.
  • If the Inspector approves, then your chosen dog will be booked for sterilization and micro-chipping.
  • You will then be phoned when your pet is ready for collection.
  • Cats do not require a property inspection.
  • We ask R600 for an adopted dog and R500 for a cat.
  • All animals will be handed over to you fully vaccinated, frontlined, sterilized and with a micro-chip inserted.
  • Take time to bond with your choice BEFORE you take it home
