The Thanda Inja Animal Welfare Hospital - A Better Life for All.
Pug Rescue SA started the Thanda Inja community outreach project in Gabon, an informal settlement in Daveyton, five years ago. It started from humble beginnings from the front garden of the owner of an informal dwelling, offering basic care to dogs and cats, and education to animal owners. The project has grown to the point of now setting up of temporary veterinary theatres and a veterinary clinic in an open field in an area called Mkalazenki, to allow us to offer veterinary care and sterilisations to the community. This is not a sustainable solution.
Pug Rescue SA has now taken on the massive task of building it's very own well-equipped Thanda Inja Animal Welfare Hospital in Benoni, alongside their shelter walls. This high-volume, low-cost Thanda Inja Animal Welfare Hospital will be available to all animal owners that are unable to afford commercial veterinary solutions, which is where the care is DESPERATELY needed.
The immediate funds required to secure the property including the transfer, registration, and rezoning is R3 500 000, which is $264 560. This will be to cover the cost to secure the property, the transfer fees, the re-zoning, and the architectural plans.
All funds raised through this campaign will be used to ensure the future of many underprivileged individuals - and their fur friends - have access to quality veterinary care, sterilisation, and feeding.
