How you are making a difference.
The #WeCan campaign encourages animal lovers of all ages, to walk this mile-to-a million with us. You are one of 100 000 individuals who have decided to help our four & three-legged friends like Misty, Mo, Star, Percy & Michael. The AACL Cape Town sees in excess of 50 000 animals and the characters who you’ve heard about are only five of them! You can donate R10 to any of the characters you choose and your donation will enable us to continue caring for our furry friends, as well as those still to come!
As the hoomans are enjoying the last of the sunshine, the furry furiends are preparing for colder days at the shelter.
We’re preparing for a cold winter and would like our kennels to be as warm as they possibly can be for the animals.
Should you wish to donate toward our blanket drive, you can drop off fleecy or stormy blankets at your nearest branch.

Our Animal Welfare Organisation of the Month is Inclusive Welfare
Services for Dogs
HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THEM.
Tebogo Maredi is the Founder and Chairperson of Inclusive Welfare Services NPC/NPO – established in 2021.
‘I stay in Soshanguve, Pretoria. Three years ago I lost my job and got my Boerboel, Ellie, as a gift from a gentleman. On our walks we would meet skinny, malnourished dogs infested with ticks and fleas, unlike Ellie who is clean and well looked-after. That’s when I decided I must step in.
As I was unemployed, I used all my savings to help animals and children. The main idea behind all of this is to keep children occupied and teach them how to love and care for animals. The people in my community used to keep dogs on chains and sometimes neglect to feed them. They also didn’t use parasite treatment and prevention products because they are underprivileged and most live in dire poverty.
So I used to go from house to house to help animals in need and eventually managed to save up money to host a small event to give out dog food, wash dogs and involve children as they can easily be taught how to care for their dogs. Later we started hosting big events, servicing over 200 dogs. We also organised mass vaccination and deworming events during which we got 204 dogs vaccinated in one day. The second round we vaccinated 157. We are now doing sterilisations as well and have done 38 to date (we are limited to a maximum of 20 dogs at a time). The sterilisation drive is still running and we’re ready for our third group.’

About this NPC
Inclusive Welfare Services is a non-profit company that mainly deals with educating children and communities about dogs, including acceptable and unacceptable behaviours towards dogs, how to care for and love dogs, how to keep them clean and the importance of disposing of dirty water and replacing it with clean water.
They are working in Pretoria, Gauteng, where they host events that entail giving out packs of dog food, collars, leashes and harnesses, water and dog food bowls as well as washing over 200 dogs per event. But they need our help.
Ultimately, they seek donations of dog food, food and water bowls, collars, harnesses and leashes, shampoos and medications as well as funding to build and maintain a dog rescue centre. There are no rescue centres in their area yet there are many stray dogs, malnourished dogs and dogs that are not taken care of.
Your help and donations will make a big difference in the lives of these dogs as well as the children and adults in the community.
Please consider making a donation today – or even better, a small monthly contribution to their organisation.
