TAWI runs entirely on donations and we stretch every Rand to the max to help as many animals as possible – from making our own surgical lamps and spay racks to only working with volunteer vets. Because of this, it costs only R300 ($25) to improve a dog’s quality of life forever with sterilisation. So, however much (or little) you are able to share, it will make a meaningful difference in an animal’s life.
