Supporting Animal Welfare
The real heroes are those animals that have been hurt but continue to love us unconditionally
A LITTLE ABOUT US
Helping Hands SA was founded in October 2009 and with the help of a great support committee and followers we have been able to raise funds through various events and products sales in aid of animal welfare shelters in and around South Africa. We are firm believers and supporters of no-kill animal shelters and through our efforts not only do we raise funds but also bring awareness on the happenings within the animal world. We often hold casual social events where we get together with our furry babies and picnic where we can all get to know each other and make some forever friends.
WHAT MAKES OUR CAUSE SO IMPORTANT?
There are an unimaginable amount of animals that are suffering or are orphans in our shelters and these shelters need our help to continue to survive. Us as the community have to work together to help the animals who cannot speak for themselves.
Join the conversation with us and let's chat all about animals and so much more.
10 THINGS YOU OWE YOUR PET
Just like with being a parent, there is skill involved in being a successful pet owner. There's more to it than just going to the pet shop and getting a puppy or a kitten.
These days, animal welfare organisations make doubly sure that you are able to be a responsible pet owner before they hand over a puppy, a kitten or a grown animal. So before you take on a pet, check out the following tips from the Cybervet forum users:
Make sure you can afford a pet
Be consistent in your rules
Have your pet spayed or neutered
Take your dog for walks
Feed your animals at the same time every day
Never hit your animals
Pets need people
Get a vet you trust
Have your pet ID-tagged
Arrange adequate care when you are away
