We’ve done sterilization campaigns in Paul Roux and Rosendal. For the last 3 years we’ve been doing, and are continuing, monthly sterilization campaigns in Qwa-Qwa. Every three to four months we do sterilization campaigns in Bethlehem. We’ve been doing sterilizations in Fouriesberg (sometimes weekly) and Clarens (monthly) since CAT was established. Even though we mainly concentrate in the Eastern Free State, we’ve done campaigns as far as Richards Bay.
We’ve also done Rabies vaccination campaigns in our local farming areas and in the farming areas outside Clocolan and assisted with campaigns along the Lesotho border.
For us, sterilization is one of the best ways to stop suffering and cruelty. If you would like us to come to your area, please contact us.
Like our sterilization campaigns, our Dip days are very important. On these days, the owners bring their animals to be dipped, de-wormed and vaccinated. It’s during these days that we have one-on-one time with the owners and their children, which enables us to educate them on proper animal care. It also gives us a chance to check up on dogs and cats to make sure everyone is being treated well and looked after. Any sick or injured animals are taken to our vet, Dr. Katherine Barker, to be assessed and treated. We do weekly dip days in Bethlehem, Fouriesburg and Clarens.
Any animal ‘goodies’ you can think of, from dog and cat food and bowls, to bedding, collars and cat litter and trays, are always very much needed. We also go through lots of medical disposables such as syringes, gloves and de-worming and flea treatments, as well as basic stationery items, including pens, note paper, colored pencils and printing ink. Any office furniture and veterinary clinic appliances are also welcome.
COME SUPPORT US
Veterinary welfare is expensive to fund and, while our clients pay a nominal amount in accordance with our fee scale, this cannot possibly cover the costs of this critical service. Our funding is acquired through donations, sponsorships and fundraising events, and we’re entirely dependent on the support and generosity of the public, to whom we are very grateful.
