WHO IS THE ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANISATION?
The Animal Rescue Organisation (ARO) is a registered NGO (003-967-NPO), established in 1986 to relieve the suffering of animals living within indigent communities across the Cape Metropole. ARO is not a pet shelter, but is a welfare veterinary hospital service concentrating on a number of important areas of work including sterilisation and primary health care.
ARO’s veterinary mandate is managed by Senior Veterinarian Dr Reuben Kotze. ARO sends out mobile clinics, run by registered and experienced AWA’s (Animal Welfare Assistants) into extremely poor and indigent communities including informal settlements including, but not limited to, Guguletu, Nyanga, Delft, Browns Farm and similar areas within the wider Cape Metropole. Please refer to ARO’s hospital page to see the mobile clinic rosters.
In addition, ARO runs a fully equipped welfare hospital at 5 Olieboom Road, Ottery providing a welfare service to members of the public earning less than R15000 gross monthly household income.
