These are some of the animal rescue initiatives that we will help fund with proceeds from your sale.
Thank you for supporting us and all the animals we are able to help through your purchases from our store.
Our store was initially set up to help our own resuce efforts but we want to help as many small rescue groups in South Africa that need help too.
Voices of the Ferals – CODE KYACATS
Voices of the Ferals (our original name) was our very first step to formalising what we were doing to help the feral cats in the Kya Sands area in Johannesburg. We always need help with food as we are currently using about 200kg per month for our feral cat colonies in the area. This amount of food needed is growing all the times as we expand our help in Kya Sands.
Besides food, there are always vet bills and of course sterilisations that need to be done. We help any animal in Kya Sands that needs our help, not just cats, so we truly appreciate your support.
Please note that Voices of the Ferals is part of Pawing it Forward. We just didn’t want to change our original name on Facebook as we love it 🙂
If you would like the proceeds of your sale to go towards this part of our rescue efforts then please choose “KYACATS” on checkout.
Feed a Rescue – Code: FOODFUND
Our feed a rescue fund is to help those smaller rescue groups who are struggling to keep up with their food bills.
It’s extremely difficult to keep up with feeding animals in rescue and it’s the one thing that all groups struggle with as this is an ongoing cost every day, year in and year out. Somehow rescue groups have to find the funds from somewhere, and we know how very difficult this can be. Please help keep the animals fed so rescuers can get the other jobs done like sterilisations.
If you would like the proceeds of your sale to go towards this part of our rescue efforts then please choose “FOODFUND” on checkout.
Animal Sterilisation Fund – Code: STERIFUND
You can’t have rescue without sterilisations.
There are more than enough kittens and puppies being born every year and just not enough homes for these animals.
We want to promote the benefits of having your domestic pets sterilised as there are just too many unwanted pets in South Africa and we don’t think your pet needs to breed to add to the numbers.
If you feel drawn to helping this cause then please use the code “STERIFUND” at checkout and proceeds from your sale will help to get an animal sterilised and stop the breeding cycle.
Santa Cause for Paws – code: SCFP
Santa Cause for Paws is a registered NPC that collects gifts for shelter animals. They also assist organisations that do outreach work in townships, feral feeders and fosters.
They are a group of volunteers, all with full time jobs that run Santa Cause for Paws in their spare time after hours.
We rely on support from the public to help animals across South Africa.
Please help Santa Cause for Paws bring cheer and joy to shelters, those in resuce and of course the many animals every year.
You can help this charity by choosing “SCFP” at checkout.
Help Fund – Code HELPME
In animal rescue there is just never enough money to go around as food, vets etc are an ongoing cost every month with nothing left over at the end.
This fund is our emergency fund. It will either assist an animal with a medical need or a rescue organisation that needs equipment such as a trap, or replace a broken fridge, or a tire that needs replacing so they can do their animal outreach.
Please will you consider donating to this fund so we can help those in a desperate situation that really need a lifeline to continue their rescue efforts. Please use the code “HELPME” at checkout.
