Meet the "J Litter"

Mommy dog Juliet was likely a stray when she had her eight pups in someone's yard one evening. The following day the person phoned Save-a-Pet and we arranged for mom and pups to be collected and brought to Save a Pet. The "J Litter" are now 6 weeks old and ready to be homed. They are absolutely gorgeous, friendly puppies that are sure to be fun-loving pets.

Save-a-Pet is home to dozens of puppies, dogs, kittens and cats of all ages.  Here is a small selection of our older puppies (4 - 6 months old), many of which have been with us since birth. These very social and friendly pups are still waiting for their forever homes. View our Adoption Gallery for more.

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!
