This facility works towards the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in need, within a local community located just outside Cape Town city centre. The residents of this community live in extreme poverty, well below the poverty line, and this has resulted in a huge problem with stray animals/pets in the area! Due to the tough economic and social situation in this area, these animals are often neglected and left to fend for themselves, often resulting in starvation and/or sickness.

Because of this ever-growing problem in the area, this animal rescue center was established. The center is a pro-life (everything is done to cure the animals instead of putting them down), non-profit organisation that rescues, cares for, and sterilizes stray dogs and cats, with the hope of eventually finding new loving homes for them. Due to financial constraints, the center is only able to employ a handful of staff - they are therefore heavily dependent on volunteer help and donations.

The project would prefer Volunteers to have a rabies and tetanus vaccination,{valid Certicate} just to protect volunteers against possible  infections when dealing with new dogs that have just come off the street,
If you don't have these vaccinations, you are still welcome to join but your duties will be limited, and you will have a lot less interaction with the animal 

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Volunteers here typically start their day at 08:00 and will generally finish at the center around 15:00 (Monday - Friday). They will contribute in a very hands-on way and duties include:

- Feed and play with the animals
- Assist with rehabilitation techniques (getting them used to loving/caring people again)
- Cleaning animal houses and kennels
- Walk the dogs that are close to full recovery
- Work on fundraising initiatives and events 
- *Time spent with the adorable puppies is always a firm favorite with volunteers 

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Cape Town is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Its beaches, such as Camp’s Bay, are world renown, and Cape Town’s beachfront and downtown areas are lively at any time. During the day it is easy to find artisans selling their crafts or outdoor cafes to enjoy the Mediterranean climate. At night, there are many excellent bars, clubs and restaurants where locals and foreigners can relax and socialize.
There are numerous cultural sites to visit, including the Bo-Kaap neighborhood and the Castle of Good Hope. They reflect Cape Town’s long history and help explain why the city is one of the most multicultural in the word. Robben Island, the infamous prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during apartheid is a difficult but necessary stop. For outdoor lovers, Cape Town has a wide mix of opportunities. Table Mountain is a breathtaking spot to visit, and there are many nearby hills, mountains and trails that make for great biking, climbing and hiking. Many, like Lion’s Head Mountain, also offer stunning views over the city and ocean below. Join in on tours down the Garden Route and a Game Drive to spot the Big 5!

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Cape Town International Airport (CPT) in Cape Town. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Zuid-Afrika.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Zuid-Afrika biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Zuid-Afrika dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Zuid-Afrika.
