Woodrock Animal Rescue was founded in 1992 and today is one of the oldest independent domestic animal rescue centres in South Africa.
We are a registered non - profit, pro - life, rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing shelter now based on 8.5 hectares in the beautiful Hennops River Valley, 25 minutes from Fourways Johannesburg on the R511 Hartbeespoort Road.
We provide assistance to unfortunate, homeless, abused, neglected, stray, injured, ill, geriatric and unwanted animals (predominantly canines) that would otherwise have miserable lives and premature deaths. Woodrock Animal Rescue is a registered Non – Profit Organisation (NPO 103-156) and Public Benefits Organisation.
Our prayer and wish for Woodrock Animal Rescue is that some day in the near future we can raise enough money to build our very own veterinary clinic, where we can medically treat and sterilize rescue animals! A clinic at Woodrock will change the lives of many rescue animals!
PETS (Pet Empowerment in Townships) strives to empower animals in townships and poor communities. We work with the community to improve the lives of these disadvantaged animals by giving them daily meals, warm shelters, regular inoculations, sterilisations and vet care in emergencies. We also rehome those ones that are unwanted, unloved or lost.
We try to instil in the communities, a responsibility and pride for their animals by not just empowering the animals, but also by educating and helping the people uplift themselves. We believe in working hand in hand with the animals and people of these impoverished areas to create unity, trust and stability for all.
We rely solely on public and corporate donations to cover the costs of our astronomical vet bills, feeding schemes, sterilisations projects and upkeep of our foster pets.
Our main focus is sterilisation in townships. Since 2007, we have sterilised over 5000 animals in JHB and Cape Town.
In order to make this day even better for the participants and our selected charities, we are kindly asking you for any donation or sponsorship towards prizes for the day. Remember... no donation is ever to small and every cent is turned twice and appreciated fully by these charities.
