Woodrock Animal Rescue

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 provides assistance to homeless, abused, neglected, stray, injured, ill, geriatric and unwanted animals that would otherwise have miserable lives and premature deaths; animals who have no voice of their own!

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