At African Tails our main focus is sterilize as many dogs and cats as we can, by being proactive instead of reactive we hope to curb the overpopulation of animals that often leads to neglect or abuse.
We rely purely on public donations to carry out our sterilization campaigns as well the treatments, interventions, re-homing’s and education that comes with it.
In the next 6 months we would like to sterilize at least 1000 cats and dogs in the Townships and informal settlements in the Western Cape.

Why Sterilization is important, particularly in low-income areas:
- There are not enough loving homes for all the cats and dogs.
- Prevents unwanted litters
- Prevents cruelty and neglect
- Improves animal health
- Decreases aggressive animal behaviour
- Decreases the number of strays
- Prevents unnecessary euthanasia of animals

One Dog & her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in 6 years
One Cat & her offspring can produce 420,000 cats in 7 years.
To sterilize and deworm one animal costs R650. If you’re unable to contribute financially to our cause please share our campaign with your networks so we can prevent unnecessary euthanasia of animals in our townships.
