Rubbish Dump Puppies- SOS


This weekend we headed back to De Doorns to check up on our known vulnerable dogs! 

We met new inhabitents on the municipal dump who, in turn, have brought unsterilised dogs back into the mix.

Two pups were suffering greatly, with the owners blessing we brought them back to Cape Town for treatment and rehoming! 

Ruby: 4 months, two broken bones in her leg, needs a foster/ forever who can provide her with an (initially) restful environment.

Ruben: 4 months, rectal prolapse, will require surgery but with no foreseen future complications. Needs a foster/ forever home where he can recoup.

Both pups are otherwise healthy, good with other dogs and gentle with humans. They will be re homed individually.

If you are Cape Town based and can adopt please email:
