Visiting animal shelters can be very distressing for some people. They walk down the rows of kennels and all they see are sad faces looking up at them. They find it very difficult to choose the right animal for them and their family because they want to help all of the animals, which unfortunately is just not possible.
The Anti Animal Cruelty League of Bellville is a wonderful shelter to visit. The staff is very welcoming and the shelter's smaller size will make the adopting process less overwhelming for you. The layout is very simple so you will get a chance to give every animal the consideration they deserve. They also have lovely free-runs where you can spend time and get to know your potentially new companion.
You will not regret a visit to AACL Bellville and we wish you all the luck in finding your FurKid! We know you will find what you need!
For more information please contact Alma/Helen at the AACL in Bellville on 021 951 3010.
Animal Welfare Society of Stellenbosch has many new dogs and puppies that are all adorable and are truly amazing canines. Every personality is unique and lovable and we know that they will all make excellent companions for you and your family.
Adopting a dog will save a life and will enrich another. You cannot replace the love and friendship that will grow between you and your four-legged furry friend.
Dogs found at dog shelters are some of the most loving and grateful to be rescued pals you will ever find. Many are there because of a death in the family, change in lifestyle, lack of interest, a family move that won't permit a dog and a host of other reasons that in no way impact on the desirability of the family dog that is now sitting in a cold kennel.
Come meet the dogs at Animal Welfare Society of Stellenbosch and we know that you will find your forever FurKid!

Animal Anti-Cruelty League of Epping has many new arrivals, all of whom you should come visit and meet.
Why should you adopt a dog?
Because a dog will do his best to please you and keep you smiling. He will curl up with you when you are feeling down or need some serious relaxation. He won't hold your mistakes against you or prejudge you for your looks, faults or lack of know-how. He'll be your unconditional friend and will play ball with you as long as you wish. He'll forgive you for all your mistakes, never holding them against you later. Sleeping at your feet and loving to please you, he will enjoy just spending time with you. He'll do his best to protect you, because you will be his best friend for life!
Come find your furry companion and forever FurKid! Call Veronica or Lauren on 021 534 6426 for more information
Yesterday was my first visit to the Wetnose Animal Rescue Center. I was positively surprised about the location, the surroundings and the shelter in general.
Wet Nose is located in Rayton, Gauteng. It takes around 30 minutes from Pretoria to the shelter and you can either take the tollroad or use the R104. There are a lot of sings on the way; so it's pretty easy to find. Once you have arrived at Wetnose, always say hi at the reception first.
Wetnose welcomes volunteers to walk their dogs, so take this opportunity and spend a couple of hours with their adorbale doggies. You will feel peaceful and satisfied after this day, knowing that you have enlighten the day of many shelter doggies and made them feel special and loved! Don't be afraid of the dogs, they might bounce and bark a lot, but that's just because they try to get attention and feel lonely in their kennels, once they are out and about they calm down and walk well on their leads.
The environment of Wetnose is really nice for a walk. They have a big grassy area where you can also find some rescued horses. And if you are ired after playing and walking with the doggies, you can relax on the many picnic benches under the tree, just bring some cold drinks and snacks. It's a perfect place for a one day trip and for a picnic.

If you´re looking for the dog of your dreams look no further! Harvey is here! This 5 year old chow cross has perky ears and adoring eyes, he´s got love to share but, sadly, no one to give it to. You see, while you and I look at Harvey and see nothing but a wonderful dog, someone else thought differently.
Once upon a time Harvey had a home, a family, but his owner was unkind and left Harvey to fend for himself. All alone he survived for 6 months before he was discovered and brought to Wetnose. Harvey now has food in his belly and a safe place to sleep. He´s warm, he´s healthy. But Harvey knows there´s more to life than his kennel. He knows that his forever home is out there, waiting. And someone, someday, will stop by his kennel and fall in love.
Harvey deserves it, he loves people, he would never turn down a scratch behind the ears, and walks, he can hardly contain himself he loves walks! Harvey may not be a puppy, or a fancy breed, he knows these things. But what Harvey has is heart, he is a good dog who needs a family, one that will love him forever and never leave him behind.
Harvey stays at the Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre, please give them a call on 013 932 3941 or visit them in Rayton, Gauteng
White Shepherds are very confident, fearless and clever animals who love being around their human families. They are friendly and love to please their owners. As long as you are as dedicated to training them as they are to pleasing you, you will have an amazingly lovable and obedient family dog that will be loyal to you their whole lives!
Although there is some skepticism, White Shepherds are direct descendants of German Shepherds and look very similar except for the coloring. Their coloring comes from a recessive gene that some German Shepherds carry. White shepherds are very courageous, confident and intelligent dogs. They are extremely faithful and brave and will do anything to protect their human families. Because of their protective instinct white shepherds need to be socialized very well from puppyhood so they get used to other people and animals being around them and their families. White Shepherds are one of the smartest and most trainable dog breeds, but don't respond well to harsh training.
White shepherds are herding dogs, they need to be exercised daily, whether it is a long brisk walk, jogging or running beside your bike. Playing ball and Frisbee are favorites of theirs, incorporating this into your walk is not only a good way to tire them out quicker but it gives them a purpose.
Why don't you check out the White shepherds that are currently in our shelters, come and meet Polar, Dusty, Dakota and Chester! You won't regret making one of these gorgeous animals part of your family.
