Woodrock Heroes

How would you feel…
If 2,7 million people were euthanised each year, just because they were homeless?

This appalling statistic relates to the number of homeless animals who are euthanised annually.

An unsterilised dog can produce over 67,000 offspring in 5 years, of which 6 out of 10 are euthanised, and an unsterilised cat can produce over 500,000 offspring in 7 years, of which 9 out of 10 are euthanised.

These outrageous numbers are overlooked on a daily basis, and are right under your nose.

Does this not infuriate you?
Of course, these numbers are astronomical, but if each one of us can make a difference, together we can make a change!

We welcome you to join hands with us in reducing these statistics, and in doing so, becoming a Woodrock Hero.

Woodrock Animal Rescue is the leading non-profit, pro-life, rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing shelter in South Africa. We lend a helping hand to homeless, abused, neglected, stray, injured, ill, geriatric and unwanted animals (predominantly canines) who would otherwise have miserable lives and premature deaths.

With over 30 years of saving lives, Woodrock have rescued, rehabilitated, and re-homed more than 20 million animals within South Africa alone.

Woodrock rely solely on the philanthropy of the public, and these numbers have only been attainable by the generosity of the community.

Would you like to get involved in making a change?
Woodrock have launched a monthly debit order facility for you to contribute a small amount towards our establishment each month. Our monthly expenses average on R300,000.

We invite you to join the myriad of Woodrock Heroes today, and start making a difference, so that together, we can bring about change.

A word from 2 of our Woodrock Heroes:
I contribute R300 towards the Woodrock Hero Project on a monthly basis. Even though it is a small amount, I know that I am making a difference, and it is R300 more than Woodrock had. If each and every individual could make a small contribution, it would make an enormous change to the frightening statistics of neglected, stray and abused animals in South Africa.

3 months ago, I decided that I wanted to give back. Being an animal lover, it was a no brainer that I’d donate towards an animal shelter. My sister adopted a dog from Woodrock, and only had good things to say about the establishment. I decided that I wanted to be a Woodrock Hero, and signed up for the monthly debit order facility. With just R550 a month, Iknow that my money is being put to good use. They have just built a sterilisation clinic, and this contribution would assist them in reaching their goal of
sterilising 100 animals a month. The reward I get from giving is far greater than what I
contribute, but at least I know that I am making a difference.
-Brian, Glen Hazel

Do you want to put a stop to this?
With every day that goes by, 7,397 more animals are being euthanised. How could you, knowing these statistics, just sit back and do nothing about this, when you can make a difference now, and put a stop to these outrageous numbers?

As an animal lover and enthusiast, we know that you can simply not say no to this once in a lifetime offer! What do we have to offer you, you ask? We’re offering you the opportunity to become a hero to these animals who do not have a voice of their own, we’re offering you the chance to make a difference and take a stand against the premature deaths of these innocent animals.
