Protect Third World Cats and Dogs with Vaccinations
Roll over image to zoom in
In the townships of Johannesburg, South Africa, pet owners cannot afford to give their animals even basic health care, much less spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and medication. When a beloved pet falls ill, he or she may not receive needed medical attention. Many pets are abandoned to wander the streets, resulting in an increase in the number of uncared for strays.
Dedicated veterinarians are fighting for the health and well-being of these animals, working via mobile clinics to get much-needed health services to pets in need. Every single day, people line up by the hundreds in debris-strewn fields or on street corners, carrying their pets. These clinics treat common conditions including mange, distemper, and parasites, provide vital emergency care, and give owners practical veterinary advice. Their teams also search for strays desperately in need of medical treatment and food.
You can help them! This Gift That Gives More™ funds the field work of a team of veterinarians to treat and vaccinate cats and dogs in South Africa, through the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).
Update from the Field
We are happy to report that IFAW continues to help animals in Johannesburg, South Africa every day. From October, 2014 through March, 2015 alone, they provided vacinnations for nearly 4000 animals, treated over 1000 animals with illnesses and facilitated 69 total adoptions!
We were particularly moved by the story of Casper, who was rescued by IFAW this past May. Casper was found in an abandoned house with a broken right arm and limited movement. Veterinarians were able to surgically and safely remove the broken arm, which was beyond disrepair, and nurse him back to health. During his hospital stay, they also learned that Casper is completely deaf. However, this didn't stop a longtime IFAW supporter from adopting him! We are happy to report that Casper has found his forever home.
With your continued support, we can make a real difference for animals in South Africa!
Founded in 1969, IFAW (the International Fund for Animal Welfare) saves animals in crisis around the world. With projects in more than forty countries, IFAW rescues individual animals, works to prevent cruelty to animals, and advocates for the protection of wildlife and habitats.
