Help keep Rescue is the New black OPEN

Personal message

Our motto is: Saving One Soul at a Time. We are failing due to lack of funds.

Cape Town has so much neglect and cruelty towards animals. Something we are passionate about, something we are here to fight. But we aren't coping with the amount of lives needing saving, we just don't have funds.

The animals we assist are usually malnourished, injured and too young to be away from parents. They require veterinary treatment, good food, puppy or kitten milk, medication, deworming, vaccinations and so much more. All of this is incredibly costly, a pet owner and lover will know how much this comes to for just one animal. 

We can have up to 40 in our care at a time, all needing special treatment. Saving a life is costly but its so very rewarding seeing that broken soul flourish when they find the family who will love and care for them for the rest of their lives. They deserve the best. 
With R1000 we can only purchase 3 tins of milk. That will last a week with 1 litter of puppies.  R1000 will get us 5 x 2kg bags of food, nutritious food. This doesn't last a week with all the mouths we need to feed. Kennels charge us R70/R80 per day, per dog. This can run into thousands a month. All of this is beside veterinary care, sterilisation, deworming, vaccinations, flea products.
