We at ROAR for PAWS (Rural Outreach And Relief for Paws) do not want to be a quiet voice for the forgotten souls in rural areas, we want to raise awareness with a mighty ROAR! The huge number of domesticated animals in rural areas is a concern and needs to be addressed by sterilization. Rabies in the Western Cape has recently become a great concern as animals have been found that tested positive for Rabies in the specific area that we service. It is thus CRITICAL that the animals be vaccinated against Rabies.
That is why we have another sterilization and vaccination (Rabies and Booster) drive on 27 September 2018 for dogs and cats in the farming communities near Paarl/Malmesbury, Western Cape, South Africa. Community dogs and cats will benefit from these treatments.
WHO IS ROAR FOR PAWS
We believe in working together with like-minded individuals and organizations, for in the end there is only ONE goal: improve the lives and future of the furkids.
Rural Outreach and Relief for Paws, where STERILIZATION is paramount and the forgotten furry souls are tops! We at ROAR for PAWS do not want to be a quiet voice for the forgotten souls in rural areas, we want to raise awareness with a mighty ROAR!
This small organization is led by 3 individuals, Joanne Brune, Salomie du Plessis and Louise Schoeman. Though having furkids, ‘normal jobs’ and families of our own, our passion has always been ‘outreach’ work. After being ‘hands-on’ in animal welfare since 2011, we gradually started to focus on our big dream and branched out in 2017. This led to the birth of our organisation in 2018. NPO 202-569 was registered on 26 January 2018.
Our dream is to replace the nightmares experienced by the forgotten souls in communities with happy dreams and the reality of HOPE! We strive to ensure no more litters, no more hunger, no more illness without medical assistance and improved living conditions with maintenance and feeding programs for those community furkids under our wings. To us, ALL souls matter and STERILIZATION is the key to a better future.
We aim to uplift rural and disadvantaged communities through education and empowering them to successfully look after and care for their domestic animals and promoting the correct and humane care, nutrition, treatment, training and handling of animals in terms of good animal and welfare standards.
Currently we focus mainly on furkids on farms in the Wellington / Paarl / Cape Town Northern Suburbs areas. We rely fully on our passionate volunteers and support network so that TOGETHER we can make a difference.
