Animal Welfare Society Helderberg
The Animal Welfare Society Helderberg is a registered Non-Profit Organisation. (Reg No: 002-963 N.P.O)
We take in stray, surrendered, abandoned, neglected, injured and abused animals. We hold around 140 dogs and 80 cats. There are 26 paid staff members and a small team of volunteers who help with the exercising of the dogs and running of the charity shop. A house situated at 42 Reitz Street, Somerset West, houses the administrative office and the charity shop, the Jumble Inn.
All income generated from the shop and the biannual bazaars go directly to the running costs of the Society. The kennels are situated in Gordon’s Bay, endeavouring to re-home many cats & dogs. The AWS Helderberg has a mobile clinic operating in Macassar, Eerste River, Tarentaal Plaas, Nomzamo and Sir Lowry’s Pass. At these clinics, the dogs are dipped against ticks and fleas, are dewormed, inoculated, given mange injections and the owners are given advice. Stray animals are fetched and taken to the kennels, where AWS Helderberg endeavours to re-home them. Sterilization is high on the agenda of the AWS Helderberg. The more animals we sterilize, the less we have to euthanize. Where possible, animals are collected, sterilized and then taken back to their owners.
