Wolfshaven and its associates are dedicated to the responsible rescue, rehabilitation and correct re-homing of domestic dogs from all walks of life, regardless of their age, origins, or background. Wolfshaven is a staunch supporter of essential sterilisation for all domestic dogs.
Resident dogs are not in kennels, but are allowed much freedom in spacious enclosures with grass, shade and walk-in shelters, or live in the home with the family. Over the years since founded in 2000, many dogs have been overlooked for adoption due to old age or a traumatised background, and these now form the core group of the resident dogs, restricting our intakes, as our first responsibility is towards these rejected ones. Some of them are now the ripe old age of 18…still active and in excellent health. The organisation works in full co-operation with our sanctuary veterinarian, to ensure that the dogs are at all times in prime health.
We pay for sterilisation, vaccination and primary health care to assist qualifying disadvantaged dog owners in our area, and strive to continually educate the public with regards to responsible, humane dog ownership, with the emphasis on the need for sterilisation. We supply needy families, who do not want to relinquish their dogs for adoption, with food on a regular basis, provided we are allowed to have the dogs in question sterilised, as we do not feed to breed.
THE ORGANISATION IS FUNDED SOLELY BY PUBLIC DONATIONS
Our Mission Statement:
All resident animals at Wolfshaven Animal Sanctuary have:
- the right to life, regardless of age or health;
- the right to the best possible food, treatment and
- veterinary care to preserve their lives to the maximum;
- the right to permanent peace and freedom;
- the right to the care and protection of Wolfshaven
- the right to, when the time comes, have a dignified,
- peaceful death, only induced when no viable alternative exists.
Dogs are placed in new, approved homes only after sterilisation, vaccination and deworming by our sanctuary veterinarian.
Interviews with prospective owners and property checks are done before placing dogs. We strive to ensure correct placement of each dog, taking into account the size and location of the property, all people and other pets already in residence.
New owners of puppies under the age of 6 months are contractually bound to have the pups sterilised by one of our co-operative veterinarians, or furnish us with proof that the procedure has been done.
