"There are so many animals out there that are suffering,  and even though we can only help a fraction of them, and what we do seems miniscule, for THAT animal's life, it is not miniscule, it is everything."


We are the dominant species on this planet and therefore should be taking a very personal care of the creatures sharing it with us.

About Adopt a Pet

ADOPT-A-PET is a privately run animal rights' rescue, rehabilitation and adoption organisation for dogs and cats. It is proud to be part of the "no-kill" movement which is gaining in momentum throughout the civilised world. Every animal which comes into ADOPT-A-Pet's care is treated with the same love and respect, whether it is a pedigreed stray, or a starving, emaciated dog riddled with mange and other parasites, or a cat with broken legs. The only animals which are humanely euthanized on the advice of the veterinarians who assist ADOPT-A-PET, are those which have terminal illnesses or incurable pain with no hope of recovery. Every rescued animal is checked by a veterinarian, treated if necessary, inoculated, de-wormed and sterilised. Assistance is also given by dog & cat behaviourists.

Contact information
All our animals are kept at various kennels and foster homes.
Tel:(021) 465 4560  website:

Adoption process
Prospective owners are first interviewed verbally and then a personal home check is made, before an adoption is finalised. Animals have to be treated as part of the family and need to sleep indoors. A second pet needs to be adopted if the owner works all day.

Adoption fees
The adoption fee includes the first inoculation, de-worming, sterilisation if an adult, an identity disk and a microchip. In the case of puppies and kittens, the sterilisation fee is paid in advance and when the sterilisation is due, the owner is notified to take the animal in to the nearest veterinary practice which assists ADOPT-A-PET.
