The second wave of COVID-19 has not only affected humans in South Africa, but also the animals needing to being adopted as pets from the Animal Army in Claremont.

“The Animal Army has cancelled all adoption days until further notice. This means that all our adoptions would need to come from social media and word of mouth. This is a daunting reality as we still have over 40 beautiful doggies looking for their homes,” the organisation’s Emily Cox said via Facebook.

“We have a strict homing process that protects every party involved. If you feel you meet our criteria and are happy with the process then please do contact us!”

The following staff members can be contacted via text, but preferably not via phone call:

Emily – 083 497 7991

Jodi – 082 497 1737

The Animal Army understands that not everyone is in a position to adopt. However, there are many other ways to help including:
–Becoming a foster
–Sharing posts and telling your friends and family about the organisation
“If a monetary donation isn’t possible, a very easy way to donate is by simply applying for a Royal Canine R300 voucher and sending us the code!” the organisation said. This can be done via
