THERE IS A HUGE GAP IN ANIMAL WELFARE…

The South African Dog population is equally spread out between the rural and urban areas but the vast majority of financial resources, veterinarians, education, knowledge and animal welfare organisations are clustered around the urban centres and townships, leaving a huge gap in the health services and welfare of rural companion animals.

In the rural ancestral hills of the former Transkei there is the largest proportion of suffering among companion animals in South Africa.
