Doglet was picked up in January 2015. She must have been hit by a car as she had a sore leg and limped (she is now fully recovered). She’s a real character and has a wonderful and unique personality. She gets on well with others and has even loved sleeping with kittens. Share please to give Doglet a chance for a home of her own. Born in 2013.






Shakes is around two years old, a pitbull, but very small. Very sweet and submissive. Good with other dogs, kids and cats. Male.




Her owner decided to get a new puppy and so threw her into our vehicle to be taken away. At first she trusted no one but is now extremely playful. Excellent watch dog. About 1 year old.



We have known Snoopy for a few years in Nomzamo township. A couple of months ago she was run over and suffered a broken jaw,. We had this repaired and in early December her owners contacted us saying that they were moving back to Eastern Cape and would not be taking Snoopy with. Adult female, she has a calm temperament.




Poor Meisie has only one eye. When we collected her the previous owner agreed to surrender her saying he is unemployed. Extremely sweet and docile. Small/medium.







Male. He is adorable and very sweet. Born end of November 2015.

Sporty came to us as Spotty, but as she doesn’t have any spots we changed her name.. She is a young spayed female who had a happy beginning as a very young pup in Nomzamo. All the neighbours loved her and encouraged her by throwing out their scraps of food. As she grew she became less and less popular and when she started to poo after eating she was shoo’d away. She then got pregnant and gave birth… over the road from her owner.. Her owner didnt want to deal with any more complaints about this poor girl so called me to take them all away. She was very malnourished and her nipples were bleeding. How hard it must have been to understand why the people who fed her and loved her suddenly were chasing her away… She is a playful and friendly pooch.

Sporty is a medium size adult female, mix breed.
