We are a small team in a rural town, who assist the animals locally as there are no vets or SPCA here. We do rescue and outreach work, assisting animals that are ill and needing medical assistance, as well as feeding and hosting spay days and rabies vaccination days. Most is done from my own pocket, although we have a handful supawters. I also have over sixty cats and dogs in my care at any given time. I have to borrow a vehicle to do weekly visits to the townships as well as take animals to the vets 50km away. Although vets bills and food bills as well as funding for medical supplies is at the top of our list of necessities, a vehicle would make things so much easier. Too often I have battled for transport for emergency cases, where the outcome would have possibly been positive otherwise. I have been helping the animals of our town since around 2011. Please feel free to check out our page, Noupoort Animalcare (spelt that way because animals, and caring for them, should go together. Also we are not a registered NPO, because of a serious lack of funding (every cent goes into food, meds and vets bills, not even covering it all!), but our rep can easily be verified by the vets of our surrounding towns, as well as reputable SA shelters/rescue orgs.
A vehicle of our own would allow us to safely transport animals as well as visiting the townships more often.
Thank you in advance.
