Adoption Fee

We ask R500 for an adopted dog or cat. All animals will be handed over to you fully vaccinated, frontlined, sterilized and with a micro-chip inserted
 
Look at the dogs and cats available on our site and get an idea of what you are looking for.

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.

More About us

The Animal Welfare Society of South Africa offers a full range of veterinary services to the underprivileged and disadvantaged communities of Cape Town.

From its base in Philippi, the Society handles about 4,000 animals per month. The Clinic is open 7 days a week to accommodate those that are unable to bring their pets during the week.We have a fully equipped and very busy theatres where we do sterilizations, Orthopaedic and other operations. At any one time we can house over a hundred sick or injured animals. 

We are committed to sterilizing every animal that comes through our hospital as our contribution to reducing the number of strays and unwanted animals in Cape Town
 

The Society also has Adoption kennels. We take in stray and unwanted pets to see if we can find them suitable homes. The animal is sterilized and micro-chipped before leaving the Organization and we are strict about home-checks. We have many very happy Adopters and pets out there in the greater Cape Town community. The Animal Welfare Society also offers pound facilities to Law Enforcement.

The Society is funded entirely by the generosity of the public.
