Plett Animal Welfare Service began operating as an NPO in 2002. Chaired by Mrs Diana Butlin, it services the entire Bitou region, an area of 992 square kilometres, including urban areas, farms, townships and informal settlements
Tracy, our Kennel Manager, is responsible for the smooth running of our kennel facility, the care, nursing and general welfare of our animals
Robert, our Inspector, has a weekly schedule during which he travels to the various townships to dip, de-worm, attend to minor wounds, etc.
After several years of dedicated fund-raising, PAWS opened their own kennel facilities on 7 February 2013.
The kennels are situated just 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 re-homed.
Our primary health care services for dogs & cats in the Bitou area, include:
Enforcement – barking, dog fighting, fireworks.
• Advice on problems with animals.
• Investigations into abuse of animals, for possible criminal prosecution.
