Animals in Distress

A Holistic Approach to Animal Welfare - Unacceptable levels of poverty must be the greatest threat to South Africa’s democracy. Densely-populated informal settlements surrounding affluent centers of business are the primary concern of this indefatigable organization. “Protecting Animals; Healing Their Sickness; Fighting Cruelty; Empowering Others to do the Same” Principles of ‘rescue and home’ are evanescent, but juxtapose the animal/human element and an intelligent, practical and permanent solution becomes evident. Our Mission Statement, above, is embodied in our proactive Education and Skills’ Development initiatives.
