After several years of dedicated fund-raising, PAWS opened their own kennel facilities on 7 February 2013. The kennels are situated off the N2, just after New Horizons, on the right, driving towards Knysna.
We rent an adjoining property that will be used for various PAWS events.
Our kennel facilities for strays, injured animals and lost dogs and cats, features large open exercise yards and a spacious cattery. Our residents are loved and well-cared for until they are successfully rehomed.
We believe that an appreciation for animals, and guidance on their care, should start with our children. We have produced our own educational film, featuring local children and animals, which aims to address specific local animal welfare issues.
We have also developed other educational materials such as workbooks for use in schools. When possible we pay The LunchBox Theatre to present their educational play, “Life of a Dog” in schools.
We help learners with their social awareness projects, as they are rewarded with certificates for time dedicated to PAWS.
If you would like to help out at our kennels or events, our charity shop, or with our educational projects, please visit our VOLUNTEER page for more information.
