Giving Is Living

Personal message

Giving Is Living is an organisation that is dedicated to helping animal charities in South Africa. We host various volunteer days and fundraisers to raise money for animal welfares that are most in need of funding. 


Our Target is to provide 100 kennels to dogs without shelter this winter and we need your help to do this!!! 

During the harsh winter months, lows can reach up to minus 3 degrees in some areas of Cape Town. 

Many dogs are left out in icy temperatures, gale force winds, storms and heavy rain with nowhere to hide. During these winter months, animal hospitals such as Mdzananda Animal Clinic have a huge influx of dogs with hypothermia (a condition that causes dangerously low body temperatures). Many of the dogs die due to this. A Simple kennel could be the difference between life and death for these dogs. 

If you would like to donate a kennel it will have a laminated waterproof badge with any name/company or dedication of your choice.  You will have access to an album on our website with a picture of the kennel  (with your name badge) that you have sponsored with the dog it has been donated to. 

Please consider sponsoring a kennel. It would make a great gift to a loved one, or a donation in remembrance of someone special, most importantly it will improve the life of a dog in a huge way and may even save their life. 

Each kennel is R465, we are requesting donations of R500 (36 USD or 27 GPD) as this will then include a thick warm blanket as well as a small bag of food. 

Your support is greatly appreciated! If you donate please send us what you would like on your Kennel badge and your email address so we can let you know when your picture has been uploaded onto the website
