For the last 9 years, Hout Bay Pets have been actively encouraging the treatment and sterilisation of pets in Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg. This has prevented the birth of thousands of unwanted puppies. Such puppies are often neglected or badly treated and at best, end up in animal homes such as DARG.
We also offer free or heavily subsidised veterinary services within the townships for people who would otherwise be unable to take their pets to the vet. As well as regular vaccinations and worming, we are regularly presented with animals that have suffered severe injuries such as broken bones and lacerations.
Volunteer requirements: people willing to foster healthy or sick puppies and old dogs. All costs for fostered dogs can be covered by Hout Bay Pets.
