To advocate the mental and physical well-being, wellness and welfare of companion animals.
ANIWELL is a registered NPO (082-561) and PBO (930041789) which started its work in Goliath Estate, an informal settlement, in May 2009. Since then ANIWELL has helped thousands of animals (and animal owners) in Grabouw, Eerste Rivier, Goliath Estate, Scottsville and Bloekombos through education, sterilisation, rescue, feeding, assistance with veterinary care, rehoming, behavioural advice and, sadly, euthanasia. Our primary focus is sterilisation. We don't have a physical shelter, we're a group of volunteers all with full time jobs, helping animals from disadvantaged areas in our spare time.
We currently focusing on Bloekombos, Wallacedene, Klapmuts, Klipheuwel and surrounds. It costs us on average R200 to sterilise a cat and R300 to sterilise a dog.
A photo of the animal you helped sterilise will be posted on our Facebook page (and kept in the Steriwell album for future reference). All owners are also asked to contribute.
We have a very good success rate in terms of convincing owners to sterilise their animals.
WHEN we do rescue puppies and kittens it's great but our focus is equally on the mother (unless orphaned) and getting her sterilised as soon she is physically able to be done. Her health and future is EQUALLY as important as that of her babies.
We consider ourselves a 'pro-quality-of-life' welfare organisation.
We work closely with other new and established welfare organisations with the same policies.
ANIWELL has strict policies and procedures in place especially with regards to the re-homing of our rescued 'babies'.
