4 Paws animal shelter in Diepsloot is currently one of the only shelters that services the Diepsloot area has been given until the 10th of July to make repairs to their shelter or else the health department will force them to shut down. Over 200 animals will be put down if they do not get the help they need as there is nowhere else for these animals to go.

They need to construct a drainage system and septic tank to meet the health departments requirements. The quote they received to complete this project was R61 000 at this point they do not have R5000 to pay for food or vets bills. They have 6 people that work at the shelter who do everything from looking after the animals, maintenance to fundraising and they just cannot survive anymore.

They will be grateful for anything that the community are willing to part with animal food, blankets, books (they can sell them) and especially donations. They desperately need people to help them on Saturday for some manual labour.

They only have until Monday to resolve this and desperately need our help.


If you are able to assist them on Saturday please Email, WhatsApp or SMS them. We have supplied their banking details if you are in a position to assist them financially or else check out their list for helping items they need.
