LOOKING FOR A WORTHWHILE CAUSE TO SPEND YOUR 67 MINUTES FOR MANDELA DAY?

Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre is home to 268 dogs, 47 cats, 3 horses, 23 pigs, 1 goat and 219 chickens.

Since being placed under High Court Facilitation in December 2018, Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, the shelter has seen some major improvements, including a general facility upgrade, the upgrade of some of the dog runs, fencing in of large areas so that dogs can socialise in groups, and the full refurbishment of the cattery.

But there’s still a lot to do! And you can help.

July clean-up day

Join us on SATURDAY 20TH JULY 2019 from 10h00 – 14h00 to lend a helping hand. Activities include cleaning, facility maintenance, dog walking, Pop-Up Thrift Shop and food sales. 

And it won’t all be hard work – there’s plenty of furry and feathered love to go round. You can spend time with our beautiful cats and dogs, enjoying kitty kisses and canine cuddles. You could even find your FURever friend!

Other ways to help

If you can’t join us, there are other ways you can help the over 560 gorgeous animals in our care. Uitsig ARC continues to go through troubled times, and keeping the facility’s doors open is a daily struggle.

For as little as R50 per month (the price of a coffee and a donut) you can change a life. A Section 18A Tax Certificate is available for all donations.

  • DONATE an item from our wish list, from food and beds to blankets and building materials.
