Type of Organization
Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch (AWSS) is a non-profit organization that has been caring for the homeless pets in Stellenbosch, South Africa for over 60 years.
AWSS aims to serve the community of Stellenbosch by taking care of the community’s unwanted, mistreated and neglected pets. They also advocate for and promote the sterilization of cats and dogs to humanely manage an overpopulated companion animal community. The veterinary team at the Maxwell Clinic treated and cared for over 8,000 animals in 2019; they provided examinations, vaccinations, deworming, sterilization and other lifesaving surgeries. In additional to their veterinary clinic, AWSS organizes weekly outreach clinics in their surrounding communities, providing primary veterinary healthcare and pet sterilization.
SPCA International is proud to support Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch in their ongoing efforts to provide all animals with the right to a high-quality life
