Wollies started in 2003 from humble beginnings. The initial purpose Wollies had was to sterilize as many animals as possible.
It did not end with this sterilization project. We started helping abandoned, neglected and abused animals.
We subsequently became registered as a non-profit, pro-live organisation which does not receive any government funding. Every cat and dog stays with us until they find their forever homes. Life is what we offer them and we will never take these rights away.
We STRONGLY believe that if people are educated on the benefits of sterilization and if these costs were more affordable, then there would be fewer abandoned, abused and homeless animals.
When we started building our kennels we ensured that there was enough space for the dogs to run and play, as we place a couple of dogs together in each kennel run. This is not always easy but one has the advantage that these dogs are then socialised, which makes it a lot easier when they are adopted by a family who already have other dogs.
I could not and cannot do all of this by myself. Volunteers from all walks of life have joined Wollies by sharing in my passion and burden and we love these animals unconditionally as if they were our own. No organisation can be successful without hands and hearts of gold holding these beliefs together and paving the way forward for these fur babies.
This was by no means an easy feat, BUT as we enter the shelter today –the worries of the next meal is washed away as we are excitedly greeted by wagging tails & purring bodies. This is when we know that the tears, the struggles, the battles and the constant disappointment, were all worth it at the end of the day!
The abandoned are happy, and although the shelter is just a “halfway stop” to their forever homes their roads are paved with love, care and food in the time that they spent with us and this final promise will always ring true:-
