Save-a-Pet relies entirely on donations to continue providing for the animals in our care and we are extremely grateful for the support we receive from private individuals, schools and businesses. Thank you!



SteriliseStatsSterilisation is the most effective way of attempting to deal with the endless stream of unwanted puppies and kittens that are born into a life of suffering and deprivation in the Port Elizabeth area. 

In addition to reducing the number of puppies and kittens being born, sterilisation prevents certain health problems and improves the life of the animal.

Currently STDs among unsterilised strays are rampant, and there has been a worrying increase in feline Aids, putting unsterilised domestic pets at risk. This highlights the fact that it is vitally important for all domestic and stray animals to be sterilized.

Our local vets provide a fantastic service to Save-a-Pet, but due to lack of funds there is a limit to the number of welfare cases that can be seen to.

Please consider making a donation toward the sterilisation of a dog or cat from our less privileged areas in Port Elizabeth. 

Thank you for your support!
