Featured Furkidz: PETS

hollyHund  lumay snoopy

 Have you ever heard about PETS? No?! Well, then it's about time now!

PETS is a really special Non-Profit-Organisation. It rescues kittens and puppies without being a kennel shelter. But how is this possible? The keyword is foster care. PETS is a network of many different foster families that take care of the animals until they get a forever home. The wonderful thing about that is that you don't adopt stressed "Cage Babies". The cats and dogs were all introduced to other animals and humans and especially to children, so that all the little cuties have a better chance to be adopted by a loving family. And don't worry, of course they are all medically attended to! You will see, the fact that they are rescued in a foster family helps them to adjust normal life, to cope and to recover.

However, all of the little sweethearts had a difficult time of which they don't want to think about again. Recovery can only happen with your help! Being part of a loving family is a desire of every single forgotten cat and dog. So maybe there is an empty space for a pet in your family! There are so many sweeties that are looking for a new home. Sometimes these cats and dogs are even waiting for years. So give your heart a push and visit them!

Did you know that Dachshunds are very devoted to their families? They are loyal, clever, proud, bold, playful and brave. With a lot of attention and training Dachshunds become loveable and dependable temperaments. Don't be fooled by his size a Daxi is a great watchdog and very protective of his family and home.

Dachshunds are very fascinating dogs and they make great companions, especially for children. The size and energy of these little guys have children do well keeping up with them. Dachshunds fit in a single household as well as in a family. They are very social animals, do like swimming, love their family and want to be around them at all times.

Featured Furkidz: ARK Animal Centre

So young and already homeless: This is the situation of all the puppies at the ARK Animal Centre. Imagine how it is to grow up in a shelter. Nobody wants that.

The ARK animal centre is a shelter especially for rescued little puppies. Some of them are only a few weeks old, but some are already there for months. They get almost everything they need: medical treatments, food and a place to live – but what the little doggies really miss is love and a caring home.

There are about 70 little sweethearts who are waiting for a new family where they can grow up and spend the rest of their lives with. They are mostly found at the street side, lost and all alone.

Please take a little of your time and visit the ARK animal centre. You will instantly fall in love with all those sweet puppies! And maybe you will find your new best friend! Click here to see all ARK's pups waiting for homes.

Imagine losing your home and your shelter too...A really awful thought, isn't it? So many cats and dogs are in this situation now at Kitty and Puppy Haven. The plan of the shelter organizers was to relocate to new premises, but this plan has so far unfortunately failed. However there is still a little bit of hope left, this hope is to find a new home for each of those sweet cats and dogs before the end of February.

So if you could give your heart a little push, it would be great! Maybe you are just searching for a new friend; please have a look at all those lovely cats and dogs in the Kitty & Puppy Haven. Especially the cats and dogs that aren't kittens and puppies any more as they urgently need a new home where they can spend the rest of their lives.

Have a look at all the adorable cats and dogs here, so that they can find a new home until the 28th of February!


Featured FurKidz: H.A.W.S

Lots of dogs and cats are waiting in shelters, hoping to find a new loving home. Some of them just weren't the perfect Christmas gift, others got rescued out of horrible living conditions, but most of them never felt love or got the chance to build up confidence towards humans.

Thanks to the shelters, like H.A.W.S, unwanted and mistreated animals get a second chance of living.

Some FurKidz easily find happy new homes, but what happens with the other dogs and cats?

Some dogs are staying in shelters for months, waiting for the right person to arrive.

Imagine being an unwanted shelter dog, seeing all your friends finding a new family, getting the chance to run around in a big garden and to cuddle on the couch with their new owners.

People are passing by your cage, you are trying to get their attention, but no one turns around.

How long could you deal with such conditions?

At H.A.W.S shelter dogs get the chance to play around in small gardens once a day.

They don't have to starve or fight for their food, but none of them is special, they all might have names, but in the end every dog is just one more place less in the shelter. Shelters like Haws are only temporary solutions.

You can't be loved behind bars.

Help us to find new loving homes for our shelter dogs and come down to visit H.A.W.S. and click here to see all their adorable cats and dogs.

Featured Furkidz: Kitty and Puppy Haven

It is always a challenging task for shelters to find a good home for their animals, but if they are under time pressure, the whole situation becomes a lot more difficult.

For 12 years the non-profit organization Kitty and Puppy Haven has helped 3000 puppies and kittens annually, particularly mistreated and traumatized ones. Unfortunately KPH lost the yearslong court case and now has to leave the residential area their shelter was located in due to pressure from neighbours and municipality. Relocating to new premises is the plan, but ideally all existing animals should find homes by 28th of February 2013, the due date for the closure set by the court.

Have a look at their gorgeous cats and dogs here and call the office on 011 440 24 04 for more info.
