There is a critical need to help domestic animals and livestock owned by previously disadvantaged communities, pensioners and other animal lovers who are not as fortunate as most pet owners.
SanWild has been working closely with the Letaba SPCA for quite some time now and have witnessed the wonderful work they have been doing in our area working under severe financial constraints.
Due to tough economic times in South Africa most small organizations have a really terrible time and more and more of these wonderful projects run out of funding and have to close their doors leaving the animals in need as the party who suffer most.
Finding dedicated individuals who are willing to step into the arena of helping animals is not really that easy as it takes a very special individual to overcome all the financial challenges, emotional trauma and compassion fatigue. We know that if such people are found and they have the dedication, tenacity, mind, heart and soul to go into battle to help defenseless animals we need to do what we can to help both them and the communities they serve.

SanWild has allocated a small section of land bordering our reserve that we would love to set up as a Community Animal Welfare Veterinary Clinic and Outreach Program that will be run by the local SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Branches, local Veterinarians and volunteers that will provide their services at cost or free of charge to those who qualify for assistance. It is envisaged that sterilizations, inoculations’ and basic vet care will be done on dogs, cats and all other domestic animals.
This program will also endeavour to include the treatment of livestock once we have secured funding or sponsorship for a vehicle that can be used as a Mobile Outreach Clinic that will be serving disadvantaged communities in the Tzaneen, Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa areas.
The program will accommodate & educate children from local communities to teach and show them how to care for their animals.
There is still allot of planning that will be going into this project that Louise dreamed of starting one day with the Local SPCA and long time friend Ellie Potgieter.
We will try to make that dream a reality but will need help from companies and individuals prepared to help and donate towards this project be it by donating towards the materials,building costs or products that can be used to setup this facility.
We will be extremely grateful for your support to help us! Contact me at [email protected] to become involved.
