More About us

Township Animal Rescue transforms the lives of countless animals every day, giving hope to those who otherwise would have none. Their approach is proactive and determined in the face of adversity, and aims at first and foremost giving immediate help those who need it, coupled with educating those who don't know how to help, and the long term goal of preventing further generations of unneccessary suffering through sterilisation of the animals.

After years of helping animals in the townships in and around Somerset West, Township Animal Rescue (NPO 039-758) was officially formed in 2004 by animal lovers Jillian and Vanessa Cunningham .Vanessa gained much insight into the plight of the local animals from her years working at a veterinary practice in Gordon's Bay.

They rely entirely on donations for their work, which includes:
• Running weekly clinics in the townships (Lwandle/Nomzamo and Mfuleni, and farms of Faure & Firgrove) for minor medical treatments
• Transporting pets from the townships to local vets for major treatments
• They have a sterilization program in place (also compulsory for all adopted pets, in conjunction with local veterinarians)
• Rescuing the neglected and unwanted pets from their situations, and finding them loving homes – a major priority!
• Education programmes for pet owners

Donations are absolutely vital to the daily operations of the organisation, as they are used for:
• vaccinations, de-worming, de-fleaing and dipping
• food and special diets
• injections, medications and operations

The animals that they help do not have access to the basics of food, water or shelter from the elements, and are often found in a pitiful condition, suffering from malnutrition, parasite infestation, disease and / or injury, or worse, have been willfully neglected and abused.

100% of all donations received are used for the benefit of the animals.
