“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”―Anatole France



ARO is not an animal shelter. ARO is a hospital and mobile clinic service for sick and suffering animals living in poverty stricken communities across Cape Town. ARO occasionally has animals up for adoption. Our potential adoptees are in foster care, in private homes, as we do not have boarding kennels or a cattery. Each animals is assessed and vetted before being placed up for adoption. Applicants are screened and home checks are done. This is standard across all reputable welfare organisations. An adoption fee is charged. Sterilisation and microchipping is mandatory. ARO is unable to assist with the rehoming of surrendered privately owned animals. Please refer your enquiry to Cape of Good Hope SPCA 021 700 4140 in Grassy Park.
