You can make a difference!

Animal Education & Care

Pet Animal Lifeline (P.A.L) is a Non – Profit Organization, based on the WildCoast, in the Transkei Region of South Africa. Here, we have a driving need to provide a lifeline for rural and peri-urban pets, many of whom live in unbearable conditions.

With high levels of poverty, pets- mostly dogs are largely abandoned to fend for themselves. Devastating, inhumane treatment is common. With your support we can provide a lifeline for these innocent animals. Please take a moment and see below a few options to Take Action – You Can Make a Difference!

Pet Animal Lifeline

ABOUT

Pet Animal Lifeline was an idea I had in April 2021 while staying at Quora Mouth in the Transkei, at the end of my over-landing adventure through Southern Africa with my trusted Toyota FJ  Cruiser and 4×4 trailer. I travelled 130 000kms through 10 countries in Southern Africa, I found the Transkei still to be the worst as far as dogs are concerned, many dead dogs on the road & all the dogs you come across, are starving with their noses to the ground looking for food. So instead of complaining about it, I decided to try and make a difference in their lives by starting P.A.L 

Transkei - Pet Animal Lifeline

The Transkei

WHERE WE WORK

We are based on The Wild Coast in the Transkei, Eastern Cape. A truly stunning part of South Africa, but with such intense human poverty in the Transkei many pets are left to fend for themselves.

We seek to improve these dogs/cats’ lives with basic interventions; to role-model care; and to  educate on basic needs of pets i.e. supplying a bed with shelter, always having water available and to feed their pets!

Pet Animal Lifeline Volunteers

The Team

WHAT WE DO

This non – profit organisation was started so we can respond to the driving need to provide a lifeline to the many neglected dogs & cats in these rural areas. Static clinics and Outreach programmes offer rabies vaccinations, deworming, tick and flea treatments plus treatments for many other ailments. In doing this we make dogs/cats healthier and more virile, which will give us an overpopulation problem. At the moment we do not have an overpopulation issue, we have an over breeding issue. 90% of all puppies die in their first year, as per studies by Onderstepoort University.

Playing with pups

Oscar Willemsen

Oscar arrived in the Transkei with one pup… Nuni, which he rescued in Swaziland but now, he has a pack of 8, made up of rescues, foster dogs, dogs that found him and also won’t leave him and who can blame them, knowing that their lives had previously been traumatic and they have now found a haven of love

Oscar has always had a deep love and connection to dogs and through COVID and another trip to the Transkei, Pet Animal Lifeline was born. For him it is a passion and it has also given him a purpose and fulfillment by being able to help pet animals in need.

The mother is already skin and bone. Only the strongest will survive, a miserable death for the rest. This is the REALITY for the dogs in the Transkie Wild Coast. Left food and a blanket. We will be back in a couple of days to check up. We have hectic wind and rain for the next couple of days.

Wild Coast Vet Rescue is Life EnviroVet CVC Good Things Guy Battersea Bulungula Incubator Bulungula LodgeEach year, over a million unwanted dogs and cats are euthanised (killed) at shelters across the country. Although pet behavioural problems are one reason animals are given to shelters, many orphans are the result of accidental breeding by free-roaming, unaltered pets.

STERILISATION IS THE KEY! The more pets spayed or neutered, the fewer dogs and cats will have to be destroyed.

NSP raises funds for our beneficiaries to support this quest, and YOU can be part of the change!

Pet Animal Lifeline
Saturdays Outreach 🐾🐾 At Dudumao SS school
43 Dogs treated, so many kids arrived with their pets, what a great day 😃
Rabie vaccinations, de-wormed, tick & flea treatments, food donations. We keep helping not because we have too, we love what we do, plus there is no one else helping the dogs in these remote areas on a regular basis. The roads are shocking, poverty, the dogs suffer hugely. In the past 2 years we can see a massive difference in the condition of the dogs and cats.As I keep saying STERILIZATION & EDUCATION is key to maintaining the quality of these dogs lives. Thanks to all our supporters, and with your help we can keep doing what we love to help these communities ❣️🐕🐈‍⬛🐾🐾
