Don't you just love dogs with black and tan colored coats? Dark and shiny black with a hint of brown and sometimes a cute white spot on the chest. That's simply beautiful! HAWS (Haartbeespoort Animal Welfare Society) takes care of eight of those special friends.
Tiny for example. A beautiful Rottweiler cross, who is absolutely not tiny, but large and impressive! Milton and Hechtor, on the other hand, are really small 1 year old Dachshund boys who love attention. They share a kennel with Ricky, a six months old boy who is full of energy. And for even younger black and tan dogs, have a look at the two adorable Rottweiler cross puppies! With all these different black and tan buddies there is something to each person's liking! So if you are looking for a special friend visit the black and tan FurKidz at HAWS!
HAWS is situated in Haartbeespoort, about a 40 minutes drive from Pretoria. The adoption manager Tanja is very helpful and knowledgeable. You can come over from Monday till Friday from 7.30 till 16.00. On Saturday and Sunday you can visit from 7.30 till 12.00. For more info contact Tanja on 0764550322.

We are sending you this letter because you are our last chance to get out of the shelter and to become happy.
We, that is Shepherd, Tammy, Bonjo, Socks and my other friends below, are all looking for a safe and warm home. We hope to find a family that can provide us with food, but most importantly, with lots of love and cuddles. It is really strenuous to sit in our kennels day in, day out and not knowing where our next scratch comes from. Please, come to the shelter, spend some time with us and get to know us! You won't regret it!! We can't wait to meet you!

Located close to Cape Town, Tears Animal Rescue provides shelter to strays, unwanted and even confiscated dogs and cats, following the motto 'Where tears of sadness become tears of joy!"
Everything started in January 1999, when TEARS was founded by two friends of Emma Geary- Cooke. It was her vision and dream to open an animal welfare organisation, but she tragically died in a car accident two weeks before the opening. Her followers named the shelter in memory of Emma Geary-Cooke, The Emma Animal Rescue Society. Since then TEARS renders a huge service to the animal world, hundreds of animals have been rescued, supplied with food and human interaction, and finally rehomed.
To enrich the lives of their shelter dogs walking days were introduced at TEARS and the volunteer dog walkers meet every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. As any other animal shelter TEARsS is reliant on volunteers and everyone is warmly welcomed, so come and join in the walk.
For further information please do not hesitate to contact TEARS on 021 785 4482 or just pop by at the shelter in Fishoek.
Oh please, take your time and have a look at these "havenly" puppies residing at Kitty and Puppy Haven in 271 Corlett Drive.
If you are looking to adopt a young cat or dog you will find your perfect match right there! For any further information about these stunning boys and girls, please contact Kitty and Puppy Haven on 011 440 2404, click here to see all their pups looking for homes!
Located close to Johannesburg, FORA is one of the biggest animal shelters in Gauteng. More than four hundreds dogs and nearly 150 cats have a temporary shelter at the Friends of Rescued Animals' property.
FORA's motto is "Endless hope, not a hopeless end!" and they do their best to achieve this goal!
While the animals are waiting for their forever home, the shelter management works hard to guarantee a livable stay for each animal. There is however a lot to do, so please come and help! Every volunteer is warmly welcomed and some of the kennels and runs are equipped with toys for the animals so you can play with them all day long, but they love it even more when you take them out for a walk outside of the enclosures.
Please contact FORA for further information about volunteering and adopting on 072 413 5364.
ARF! Hey, hello! Hello there! I am here! No,...please stay – hello, hello? Oh no. Could we not at least have given it a try? – But hey, there's someone new! And – can't believe it – yeah, just come in, be my guest!
Okay, showtime! Ready to rock, go for broke. Oh, that's a nice person. Fondles me, gives me some treats and we're taking a walk in the field. The Wetnose Animal Rescue Center, that is how they all call this place where I´m staying; it is a really tidy shelter with a big open field in the midst of trees and bushes. I love feeling the soft grass under my paws, sniffing all the interesting smells.
Over there I see that stupid black sausage dog, my arch enemy. He's so lordly, sniffing his long nose at all of us crossbreeds. But not now, I won't quarrel with him now.
And then we're going back, you and me, heading for the kennels. I'm slowing down, resisting as much as possible, you will have to drag me. No, please not, please! A big teardrop rolls down my snout.
But suddenly you pause and are talking to one of the clerks while stroking me. It takes a long time – and I'm so excited! May I stay with you? Yes? – Yes!!! I'm jumping into your car, so happy, barking joyfully. You really won't regret having adopted me!!! Written by Kathi Backa
