Mass Sterilisation Drive

Mass Sterilisation Drive

Personal message

Stella Meldau will be celebrating her birthday in March. Her goal is forever and always to change and save the lives of animals - ALL OVER.

Woodrock proudly aligns itself and support many like-minded Animal Shelters. We are running this fantastic initiative together with Four other incredible rescue shelters:

CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare)
CAUSE FOR PAWS
GIDEONS ANIMAL OUTREACH
WOODROCK ANIMAL RESCUE

We are very blessed to have TALES OF TAILS as our Sterilisation GURU VETS conducting the actual procedures.

Most domestic cats have life spans from 12 to 15 years. With an average of 5 kittens per litter and four sets of litter a year, a cat can give birth to up to 300 kittens in its lifetime. A dog can have three litters a year, with seven puppies per litter. That equates to 126 puppies in 6 years.

A single female dog and her babies can have over 67,000 puppies in six years. That is over 11,000 dogs that need safe, cruelty-free homes per year. It is impossible to find that many homes. That is why we must sterilise these animals before they can breed.

We aim to sterilise 500 animals during March.
We will be rewarding every Animal going in for surgery with a food bag. Every family will receive a small hamper (Mielie Meal/Beans/Soup).

On the note of giving out dog/cat food bags and a small hamper, we will need to ask for drop off donations over February.

Kindly donate generously:

Small Bag of Mielie Meal, One Tin of Beans, Packet of Soup
A Bag of Dog or Cat Food

Take-a-Lot does deliver to PLOT 51, R511, HENNOPS RIVER VALLEY. You may drop off at our farm- Possibly do an office drive- is always a great idea, or a birthday fundraiser. 

Please consider making a monthly donation either in your own capacity or as a gift on behalf of family/friends to Woodrock Animal Rescue. We require regular funds and rely heavily on our communities assistance specifically for the ongoing sterilisation of as many animals as possible.

Woodrock Animal Rescue is a leading non-profit, pro-life, rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing shelter in South Africa.

Woodrock was founded in 1992 by Nicholas and Stella (Estelle) Meldau, whose focus, passion and drive afforded their animal rescue vision to become a reality. The rescue centre originated in the suburban area of Woodmead and Khyber Rock, hence the name Woodrock. We are now based on 8.5 hectares in the beautiful Hennops River Valley.

Our motto is ACTA NON VERBA – “Action not Words”. 

Woodrock Animal Rescue is one of the oldest independent non-profit, pro-life domestic animal rescue centres in South Africa.
