Why is Sterilization
important

There are no statistics for the euthanasia of domestic animals available in South Africa. If there was maybe people would pay attention to the problem that is facing us. Maybe this would anger and scare them into taking action, because we all know that the warm fuzzy feeling we walk around with all day long only lulls us into a sense of false security and we accomplish nothing when we feel like that. Many people want their children to witness the miracle of birth, or give their animal the chance to have just one litter but the truth of the matter is that the beautiful little fluffy puppy you are holding in your hands right now will probably end up living a life of hell whilst reproducing more offspring to follow the same suit.

Unemployed


There are approx 6 million people in South Africa that have no work. This is 6 million households with no income that have to take care of their families- feed them, clothe them and most of these households have domestic animals.

There are approx 6 million people in South Africa that have no work. This is 6 million households with no income that have to take care of their families- feed them, clothe them and most of these households have domestic animals. There is no money for spaying and neutering let alone vet bills, and these animals are breeding indescriminately. That is why the shelters and SPCAs are filled to capacity, with animal abuse and neglect on the rise we have to make a difference in some way. I was once asked by a radio presenter how many animals I have spayed with baking cakes and when I told him he said it was a drop in the ocean. At the time I was a bit taken aback and couldn’t find a proper response because it then seemed like I was not making a difference. When I had a bit of time to think about it it realised that for everey two animals spayed I had saved 67 000 animals from a lifetime of hunger and neglect. The motivation lies in the fact that I am making a difference, no matter how small.

So I ask you how do you eat and elephant? One bite at a time.
