How you can help


There are so many avenues to helping us, from field work, fundraising, admin, one off projects…there is something to suit everyone.   You can register your interest or contact anyone on the committee and have a chat.


The more money we have, the more services we provide and the wider our reach can be.   But you can also donate your time, or pet food, pet medications, transport.    Talk to us and explore the options easiest for you.

On-going Projects

Register to Volunteer for any of these activities


This is such a critical activity to help the animals from continuous breeding cycles and unwanted litters.   Our volunteers collect animals from various villages and drive them to the clinic for surgery.

book sales

We receive donated good quality used books which we onsell to generate income.   We sell books at suitable locations.   We regularly need to manage this revenue stream.


We do not have a traditional shelter to keep strays.   We rely on the kindness of the community to house and care for strays until we have found a forever home.   


Fundraising is vital to our existence as we do not receive Govt funding.   The more money we raise, the more animals we help.   There are various ways to help – reach more to find out how.

admin support

We are always busy with various projects.   Please ask us to put your name on our register if you are unable to do field work but want to help with admin.


If you have a flair for, or inexperience in  marketing, we would love to have ideas on broadening our marketing and community reach.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Reducing unwanted litters, improving the health & wellbeing of animals and educating the community on care and compassion.
