We have many different dogs and cats, available, mostly crossbreeds but there are also a few thoroughbreds too. We will tell you as much information about the animal/s that you are interested in, if they are available and suitable for you. We then may do a property inspection to check that the property is secure for them, has enough space and suitable shelter. We pass the property according to the size of the animal required (small, medium, large, fighting breed, etc), not a specific dog and we also work strictly on a "first come-first served" basis. We will not book dogs in advance.
This means that you can change your mind and the property inspection remains valid for between 3 to 12 months as long as the property remains unchanged. Once the property has passed, and depending if the animal is available, you would return to adopt an animal/s, do the paperwork, pay for the animal and purchase any food or pet products if required. In certain cases, we also advise that, if it is best, we first do an introduction between our animals and yours. Our adoption fee covers one vaccination, a Rabies vaccination if the animal is over 4 months of age. Sterilisation is also included and may be done at adoption or the puppy and kitten returned to the AACL at 6 months of age (certain conditions apply) for this procedure. We also include 3 weeks of free veterinary treatment should it get sick, an identity disc and (1) one year free membership to the League.

More About us

The Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL™), has been protecting and caring for animals since 1956. It is South Africa's second largest independent Animal Welfare Organisation, relying entirely on the generosity and goodwill of the animal-loving public for financial support.

We are an organisation that gets involved with all aspects of animal welfare - provide shelter for abandoned animals, promote an efficient adoption programme, prosecute animal cruelty cases, run welfare hospitals for the lower income and disadvantaged groups, visit underpriviledged areas with fully equiped mobile clinics and regularly address schools and clubs on the challenges of animal welfare.

We have branches in the major centres of the country - Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Port Elizabeth, Ladysmith and the farming area of Bredasdorp. All our branches have different areas of operation, the Johannesburg Society incorporated the ANIMAL ANTI-CRUELTY LEAGUE NATIONAL BODY and therefore it covers:
"Any areas with the Republic Of South Africa and it is not limited by any Magisterial District or Municipal boundaries" in other words the National Body operates countrywide.
