Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha has reached full capacity. As a result, many of the dogs they have in their care will need to be rehomed urgently, whether this is in a foster or permanent capacity.

“We are now needing to turn dog owners away or direct them to other welfare organisations,” the organisation said via Facebook. “Please open hearts and homes to a new furry friend so that we have space to help more.”

It costs the Clinic R1565 to care for one pet in the first month alone. Any donations towards their care would be much appreciated.
