“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” – Martin Buber

The Animal Rescue Organisation (ARO)

We are a registered NGO (003-967-NPO),
established in 1986 to relieve the suffering
of animals living within indigent communities
across the Cape Metropole.

We provide a welfare veterinary hospital service concentrating on a number of important
areas of work including sterilisation and primary health care.

Welfare Veterinary Hospital

Our hospital and day clinic focuses on the treatment of sick and suffering animals, from disease, to neglect and cruelty.

Mobile Clinics

Our 3 mobile clinics work on a roster timetable in local townships and informal settlement community, focusing on education of owners, animal primary health care and sterilisation.

Sterilisation

Sterilisations are performed at our hospital in Ottery, and are mandatory for all animals brought for treatment by indigent families.

WHO IS THE ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANISATION?

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 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.

RAFFLE 2020

Support our annual raffle to help ARO continue providing essential
veterinary care to animals living within impoverished communities within the Western Cape.

 

 

All funds raised will be focused on primary health care and sterilisation which remains the most effective way to reduce unwanted litters and avoid a life of neglect, abuse, cruelty and suffering. We achieve this through our Mobile Clinics, which are the critical link between the ARO hospital and the animals who need us most.

Your support of our work is hugely appreciated.

Ban Circus Animals in South Africa

here is one animal circus left in SA which is causing grave concerns regarding the welfare of the animals forced to live a life of travel and performing ~ wild animals which should be free.

ARO joins countless thousands of others in protesting the practise of forcing wild animals to perform silly tricks for human entertainment. ARO currently has nearly 10 000 original signatures from people in SA who wish to see this barbaric practise banned. Add you name.
