HAT focuses on sterilisations and educates pet owners on how animals should be treated and cared for. We take the time to teach the children and encourage them to interact with their pets. Our approach is very much "hands-on".
Our primary objective is to positively change the hearts of pet owners in the poorer communities of Grabouw Township, thereby minimizing neglect, pain & suffering of animals.
There has been a noticeable change in the pets living circumstances and overall health in the areas that have received our intervention to date. The attitude of the people has also become remarkably more caring towards both the pets and each other.
HAT has a phenomenal working relationship with the majority of other rescue organisations in the Western Cape and often draws on their expertise and facility to house and rehome stray or unwanted animals. We are active members of the Cape Animal Welfare Forum and up-to-date with the animal welfare market; challenges and victories.
