The Hermanus Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) cares for sick, abused, abandoned and lost cats and dogs at our kennels in Hermanus – Our work consists mainly of responding to reports of animal abuse and looking after starving, maltreated, abandoned and sick animals and rehoming them.  A dipping and anti-parasite service is provided at the kennels for a nominal fee.  In addition we look after stray, abused and neglected animals brought to us by the Municipality’s law enforcement department. If the animals are not claimed by their owners within 7 days, the animals become the property of HAWS where we then attempt to rehome them.  The kennels can accommodate 50 – 60 dogs/puppies and the same number of cats/kittens during busy times. There are four separate cat rooms, all with an outside area. The dogs have a combination of small and roomier cages depending on the breed size. They also have large grassy outside areas where they can run about during the day and take a dip in small plastic pools during hot days. HAWS has the use of a servitude behind the property. With the assistance of volunteers and a dog trainer, the dogs are being taught basic obedience training. Our own independent clinic has been operating since June 2013.

Hermanus Animal Welfare is driven solely by way of funds raised through the generosity and kindness of the public and volunteers concerned for the welfare of the fur babies that we take care of.  We welcome all and any donations which you feel you are able to contribute to this worthy cause.  Whatever the amount, our fur babies will love you forever.
