We currently don’t have a shelter facility. Any animals that we rescue we place at other shelters. We also have a number of wonderful foster moms who help us with fostering of puppies, kittens, dogs and cats. We are very grateful for the incredible work these dedicated foster moms do to help us rescue and rehome more animals. We are assisting them with finding suitable homes for these animals.
The remainder of our committee are all volunteers who have full-time jobs, own businesses etc and their involvement with Chain Boland is over and above their other commitments.
We work closely with the Witzenberg Municipality and the two Veterinary Practices in our area to address the overpopulation of dogs and cats in our region, through sterilization, vaccination, education, clinics etc. In the unfortunate cases of severe illness or injury, we have to deal with humane euthanasia. This decision is always made with a heavy heart with the purpose of ending the suffering of an animal.
Over the years we worked very hard at fundraising and eventually thanks to our efforts as well as the generosity of our supporters, we acquired a second-hand vehicle to allow us to be active in the field. Our next goal (dream) is to have our own permanent premises where we can erect proper kennels, have an office, storage facility, exercise area for the rescues and so on.
