Roxy's Sterilisation Fundraiser

Personal message

In 2013 we lost our Rottweiler and we were casually visiting shelters looking for a new family member to adopt and open our home to a dog in need. We visited a shelter in August and were interested in a Labrador puppy, but after completing the forms the adoption facilitator asked if we would be interested in an adult pitbull who had been waiting for months to be adopted after she was found on the streets in a terrible condition. We were set on a puppy at first, but after going into Roxy’s kennel and meeting her, it was a done deal. It was love at first sight and I knew she was “the one,” to this day I’m convinced Roxy chose us and not the other way around. We left the shelter and Roxy was booked for her sterilization along with a home check the following week. It was a rainy afternoon and we were shopping for new dog items when we got the call that our girl was ready to go home. We left everything in the shop and went through to the shelter to fetch her and take her to her forever home. All the shelter staff were crying when Roxy finally got her freedom ride and left them for good. It wasn’t easy at first, Roxy had separation anxiety and we all had to learn to adjust and settle around each other, but everything settled with time, love and patience.


Roxy’s adoption facilitator now works at Animal Welfare Society of SA (in Philippi) and we try to celebrate her Gotcha Day’s every year by giving back to animals in need. She will be celebrating her 6th anniversary with us 12 August and this year we are raising funds for the Isdell Sterilisation Clinic at AWS. With your help, we are aiming to raise enough funds to sterilise at least 100 animals once the clinic opens.


Sterilisations are extremely important and help prevent unwanted litters, strays, animals ending up in shelters, and it improves the health of the animals sterilised. Over 6 years one unsterilised dog or cat and their offspring can multiply to 67 000 puppies and 66 088 kittens respectively


Together we can make a difference in the lives of innocent animals and be a voice for the voiceless.

Be wise, sterilise.
