Welcome to our website
The Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch (AWSS) is a non-profit organisation with the aim to serve the community of Stellenbosch and greater Stellenbosch by taking care of the community’s unwanted, mistreated and neglected pets. We also advocate and promote the sterilisation of cats and dogs to curb unwanted breeding in an already overpopulated pet community. We sterilise, dip, vaccinate, deworm and treat illnesses of animals in our low-income communities and provide a safe haven for homeless or surrendered animals until we’re able to place them in good, loving homes. At any given time, we house an average of 150 animals.
