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.

Once upon a time, in a picturesque garden nestled within a charming village, there lived a skilled gardener named Ella. Her love for nature was unparalleled, and her garden was a sanctuary of vibrant roses. She tended to her garden with the utmost care, nurturing every plant. However, a dark and menacing force threatened Ella's beloved garden: a villainous army of sucking insects and diseases. These wicked foes came from the dark sides of the globe, determined to feed on every plant that might come across their path, including Ella's rose garden, which she had worked so hard to cultivate to the utmost perfection. Aware of this looming threat, she decided to seek the guidance of her wise friend, an ancient Commander named Makhro and his royal Knights of the Roses: Sir Koinor, a unique insect fighter, Master Grobest possesses magic powers, Dame Rose Protector harnesses a secret potion, and Lady Chronos, a gentle warrior. Ella diligently applied these remedies and watched as her roses bloomed with newfound strength and her garden regained its vibrant beauty. Ella's garden once again thrived, its beauty and fragrance enchanting all who visited. The villagers marvelled at her dedication and the magical remedies that had saved her garden. This gardener's story and her battle against the forces of destruction became a cherished legend, inspiring gardeners everywhere to protect their precious sanctuaries from the pests that threatened them, armed with the knowledge of Makhro and his royal Knights of the Roses. Koinor: For season-long control of any aphids and all sucking insects, use Koinor by applying it directly to the base of the rose’s stem. It is easy to apply, and no spraying is required. Chronos: A contact fungicide formulated to have no negative effect on roses and controls black spot and powdery mildew on roses. The advantage of Chronos over most older-generation fungicides is that the leaf absorbs it within minutes after application. The product then moves within the leaves to just beneath the surface, preventing entry of the fungi conidia through the stomata pores. Grobest: A fish hydrolysate liquid fertilizer is a natural way to supply abundant minerals and vitamins to your roses. It provides many benefits, including nitrogen and phosphorus, promoting rapid plant growth. Rose Protector: The original three-active-ingredient rose protector! With a contact insecticide, a contact fungicide and a systemic fungicide, Makhro Rose Protector offers 3-in-1 protection for controlling pests and diseases on roses.

Breaking news: We identified the culprits. They are black and yellow-banded larvae and are unpalatable to most vertebrate predators. The warmer weather encouraged the precious summer bulbs, Amaryllis, Clivia, Agapanthus, Crinums and Haemanthus, to juice up and flower again. Unknowingly aware of the Lily borer syndicate on the loose. The juicy flowers attracted the attention of the atrocious criminal, Lily Borer – also known as amaryllis borer – to commit their crimes. Their MO: These are voracious feeders that take vast chunks of healthy leaves. To add insult to injury, they will even tunnel deeply into the plant's body, munching away until nothing is left. Signs of collapsing plants are a sure indication that they are present. As plants are costly to replace, it is best to do preventative spraying and a controlled follow-up. The intel on their activities is that the white moths start laying their eggs on the underside of the leaves in early September. In warm subtropical climates, they do it all year round. The newly-hatched larvae will immediately start feeding at night and on overcast days. Sargent Plant Care and Special Agent Koinor were assigned to the case and released the following statements. Sargent Plant Care takes double-barrel action through contact and systemic control. Sargent PC informed us that he works well in low temperatures and will patrol easier during winter and early spring. Cold temperatures slow the water intake through the plant roots, giving Sargent PC a unique edge because of its contact control characteristic. Police Secretary SK Eco Oil assists Sargent PC with his contact patrol work to improve coverage, increasing his productivity and ensuring that Sargent PC sticks to the task. Special Agent Koinor assured us he will take over during the summer while the ground temperatures are warm. Special Agent Koinor will provide season-long control with systemic action, avoiding further infestations. Special Agent Koinor drenches the soil and is guaranteed the best man for the Lily Borer case. Patrolling shifts must occur at late dusk or night when these criminals are active.

Tiny but mighty! The power of nature’s microbes in a bottle. Billions of tiny microbes spend all their lives improving the environment we all live in. They are all around us. Microscopic microbes make a massive impact to break down and reduce. Dealing with waste and saving water have become some of our primary concerns. These microbial products help to fast-track our efforts. They are available, and they work! Beneficial microbes help us condition our soil, enhance plant health, and degrade waste created by humans, plants and animals, allowing us to better manage the various waste elements in our homes and gardens. This includes home composting and improving the use of greywater and smelly drains. Fast homemade compost Winter is the season for pruning, neatening shrubs, and fallen leaves littering our gardens and driveways. We prepare vegetable soups and hearty stews. All of these leave us with organic waste that microbes can process into compost for your gardens and flower beds. All you have to do is: Build a compost enclosure or invest in an enclosed composter bin. Choose a convenient site close to a hose (because your compost should always remain slightly moist). Save yourself a lot of trouble, place a small compost bin in your kitchen, and only empty it when it is full. Add cut-up garden and kitchen waste to your compost heap or composter bin. Apply natural microbes by mixing 50ml Makhro Compost Activator with 5L of water and wet the compost until run-off. Turn the compost every two weeks and re-apply. Makhro Compost Activator contains healthy bacteria and fungi strains that degrade organic waste, reduce smelly odours, and ensure waste conversion into brown gold compost in as little as six to eight weeks. Clean smelly drains SmellAway Drain Clean contains a team of natural microbes that digest cooking oils, fats, proteins, and other waste components that cause smelly and clogged problems. Once all the taps are closed for the night, apply a boost dose of 250ml of SmellAway Drain Clean directly into the smelly drain. Allowing sufficient time for the microbes to do their job. Repeat the application if your smelly problem persists. A weekly dose of 50ml will aid as a preventive measure for future problems. This product is not corrosive or harmful to humans, plants or animals. Next time, we urge you to try SmellAway Drain Clean instead of reaching for a bottle of harsh chemicals for smelly or clogged kitchen or bathroom drains. ‘Fresher’ grey water Save water and use your greywater for irrigation. Greywater is wastewater from baths, showers, sinks and appliances such as the washing machine. It does not include water from either the toilet system or kitchen water, as the fat content can harm plants. SmellAway Greywater & Septic Tank is a natural odour reducer for greywater, rain harvest and septic tanks. It consists of billions of beneficial microbes, improving the water quality and degrading organic waste and sludge build-up. Greywater and septic tanks can get sludgy and smelly. The microbial team found in Smell Away Greywater & Septic Tank will become your best friend in managing these challenges. Pour directly into your tank or pour down the drain that feeds into your tank as per product dosages for domestic greywater systems and septic tanks.
