Animal Welfare Society SA

The AWS clinic is open seven days a week, including weekends and public holidays. We have fully equipped theatres where we do sterilisations, orthopaedic and other operations. At any given time, we can house more than one hundred sick or injured animals. We are committed to sterilising every animal that comes through our hospital in order to contribute to reducing the number of strays. Our Inspectorate team also respond to calls for any animal in distress, including injured strays, dog fighting and animal abuse.

We also have an adoption department. We take in strays and unwanted pets to find suitable and loving homes. Each animal is medically assessed, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for ticks and fleas, microchipped and sterilised and we do very strict home checks. We have a growing number of happy adopters and pets in the greater Cape Town community.
