Kitty and Puppy Haven is a pro-life sanctuary started in 2000 with the sole purpose of rescuing neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Most of their cases originate from veterinary practices, low income areas, other welfare organizations (that work in the townships and squatter-camps) or from emergency rescues. While animal rescue and rehabilitation is a priority, educating people on correct animal care is critical.
They will not euthanase any animals if they can be healed and have a healthy, pain free, happy life. As most animals come from disadvantaged backgrounds, many require extensive veterinary care. Every animal also receives standard health care – vaccinations, de-worming, flea control and sterilisation. Monthly veterinary bills average R40,000 – R50,000 per month.
As you know animal rescue and rehabilitation can be costly and they appreciate all the donations received from the public. Running a haven takes time, patience and care, in fact like running your own home. They do need assistance with anything to run their haven efficiently – so vote for a StarPet today and make a contribution to Kitty & Puppy Haven.
