We spoke to Allan Perrins from the Animal Welfare Society regarding this event and if there were more planned for the future. “When I accepted their invitation I stated that we hoped to build on the legacy left by our erstwhile colleague Cicely Blumberg who passed away on May 9 last year. She was the founder of Adopt a Pet who closed their doors on the 30th April 2021.”
The adoption rate at the Animal Welfare Society of SA has quadrupled since the start of these novel adoption pop-ups.
“Our donor and supporter base has increased nicely with this additional exposure and face-to-face interactions with Cape Town’s animal lovers. Our volunteers who form an indispensable part of our mobile adoption team simply love the concept and this has seen our volunteer compliment grow and evolve over the past couple of years,” Allan said.
At the moment, the shelter has volunteers from the USA, Austria and the Netherlands lending a hand. Their Animal Care Centre resembles the United Nations of Animal Lovers from globally.
“You can imagine just how delighted we are to know that our parochial contribution is being recognised and rewarded internationally. We have had quite a few celebrities visit our stand including self-confessed animal lover and much-adored local comedian Mark Lottering.”
The Animal Welfare Society of SA are fully booked for the rest of 2021 and are now considering weekday pop-ups!
Allan has also shared their other venues where adoption day is held:
- Little Orchard Nursery in Diepriver
