Thank you from Four Paws

Four Paws would like to thank all our recent donors and sponsors for their very generous support recently.  We have received so much support that we’re taking longer than usual to thank everybody personally.  Please accept a group hug from all of our residents at the shelter.  Without your ongoing support, our lives would’ve been so very different and we are so grateful for your kindness and support.

Please help us to get our application for this wonderful card approved.  We need 50 of the forms to be filled in and returned to Tammy as soon as possible.  Make every swipe count!  This is a digital form so you can either complete the details from your laptop and send to Tammy or download and send the completed form to tammy@4ourpaws.org.za.  Thanks to everyone for your participation.

 Newly Rescued

Please note :  If no actual picture of the pet is shown, this means the pet has probably sustained injuries or is in rehabilitation. They are such brave pets and they don’t mind showing you their injuries as long as you understand they might not be looking their best!  With our love and care and your help we hope to get them on the road to recovery quickly.
