Adoption Fee Cats & Kittens: R650

The adoption fee for dogs/puppies includes Sterilization, Vaccination, Microchipping, Vet Check, Deworming, Flea Treatment and Temperament Check

The adoption fee for cats/kittens includes FIV Test, Leukaemie Test, Sterilization, Vaccination, Microchipping, Vet Check, Deworming, Flea Treatment and Temperament Check

This fee helps us to partially recover some of the costs we incur, to care for & prepare our animals for re-homing.

Home visits are undertaken for our dogs and puppies, prior to adoption, to ensure compliance with our Conditions of Adoption.

All of our animals available for adoption have been rescued from abuse, neglect, starvation or abandonment. People wishing to adopt a pet are interviewed and homechecks are made to ensure that the adopted family are complying with our Adoption Policy and that the adopted pet is being taken care of.

TEARS has many beautiful, homeless dogs and cats, who are all waiting patiently for someone to love. By adopting one of our shelter pets, you secure a place for another. 

Directions to us

Follow the M3 towards Muizenberg. At the end of the highway turn right following the road until you reach the Ou Kaapse Weg turn-off, the pass over Silvermine Mountain. Travel along Ou Kaapse Weg. Once over the mountain, pass Longbeach Mall on your right hand side, and continue on that road until you reach the large fourway intersection at Kommetjie Road. Turn right onto Kommetjie Road towards Kommetjie. Carry on with that road until you pass the Sunny Acres Shopping Centre on your right hand side. The first road to the right after the Sunny Acres Shopping Centre is Lekkerwater Road, turn right here. TEARS is the fourth entrance on the left hand side of Lekkerwater Road. Contact the TEARS Office (021 785 4482) if you require more information.
 

More About us

TEARS’ mission:

TEARS is a pro-life, non-profit organisation whose core aims are to rescue, rehabilitate, re-unite and re-home lost, abandoned, abused, and neglected animals and to educate our communities, in particular the children. We strive to uplift the lives of companion animals in underprivileged communities by providing free sterilisations, primary health care, veterinary treatment and food, as well as humane education to pet owners.

TEARS’ goals:

We strive to:

  • lessen the suffering of abandoned, injured and abused dogs and cats by rescuing them, providing for their well being and placing them into loving homes;

  • reduce the numbers of unwanted animals by providing free sterilisations in underprivileged communities;

  • provide humane education to pet owners to create an awareness of the moral and ethical responsibility we have towards the animals whose world we share.

TEARS’ message:

Our teardrop logo encapsulates all that we hold dear – the care of domestic animals – and while our name may well be an acronym in remembrance of one of our founders, it is given extra meaning by our tagline: ‘Turn tears of sadness into tears of joy!”

Corporate Governance

TEARS is governed by a Board consisting of 6 Directors which include Kevin Ordman, Cobus Crafford, David Mitton, Bob Hulsman and Marilyn Hoole.  One director, co-founder Marilyn Hoole, is actively involved in the management of our organisation.  Keith Evans, our CEO, manages the day to day running of the organisation.
