The South African Weather Service has issued a level 6 weather warning following predictions of a strong cold front which will impact the Western Cape from today (Thursday 26 August 2021 into Friday). Heavy rain, strong to near gale-force winds, snow on the high-lying areas and very rough seas can be expected.

Animals will be at Risk

Our Inspectors work closely with The City’s Disaster Risk Management Centre and will be on standby to assist with the evacuation of animals from flooded areas. 

Our team of inspectors who will be on duty today and during the night ahead will also be actively seeking out animals at risk of exposure and will be doing everything they can to save lives!

Please help us to help them by reporting animals in distress to 0217004158/9 during office hours or 0833261604 afterhours

If you’re cold, your dog’s cold.

Please Help Us To Bring Them In From The Cold

It will cost an average of R500 to rescue and provide veterinary treatment for each animal rescued today. Donations made via this link will go directly towards these rescues.

We expect worse than this today

Rover was clinging desperately to a pile of debris in a flooded canal.  He was fighting so hard to prevent being swept away by the strong current that his paws were bleeding.  We reached him just in time!  Please help us to reach the many that will be suffering today.
