TEARS is a Pro-life, non-profit organisation whose core aim is to rescue, rehabilitate, re-unite and re-home lost, abandoned, abused and neglected dogs and cats.

We strive to meet the needs of the underprivileged communities by:

  • Providing primary health care such as vaccinations, deworming and parasite control.
  • Offering free sterilisations for their companion animals.
  • Providing a scheduled daily Mobile Clinic, offering basic health care (vaccinating, deworming, parasite control) and food to the animals six days a week.
  • Establishing an essential working relationship with the residents to protect the rights of the animals. Empowering and supporting communities through effective education, guidance and follow up.
  • Providing a registered veterinary clinic on our premises, offering veterinary care for pets for any condition, illness or injury.
Daily we care for +-300 animals at our shelter, providing them with food, shelter, veterinary care, exercise and positive interaction with people until they can be placed in loving homes. 

To help sustain our operation we have three charity shops, in Retreat, Fish Hoek and Sunnydale and bookshops in Retreat and Sunnydale.
