We are in the midst of a pet overpopulation crisis

Reading progress

On the 28th of June 2024, we started a census in Langa to gather accurate data on the pet population in this area. This will help us understand the scale of the problem and target our sterilisation efforts for maximum impact.

We Need Your Help! 

As we move into the surgical phase of this project, your support is crucial.

Sterilisation comes at a cost, and we are as always completely reliant on your support. As an example, by sterilising 1,000 animals, we can prevent the birth of an estimated 9,500 animals in the next 12 months.

Left unsterilised (and assuming that all offspring survive and breed at similar rates), 9500 animals will become 85 000 in year two and 460 500 in year 3. 

We must act Now!
