There are so many ways in which you can help. Shelters are always in need of the following:
- Monetary Donations
- Adoptions (every animal adopted makes space for another to be helped)
If you are unable to assist with any of the above, you can still make a huge difference by assisting in getting this blog to go viral. The more people reading this, the better the exposure for the shelters, more adoptions, better fund raising and, ultimately, a better chances of the shelters to remain open.
Adoptions from and donations to these shelters has been hard hit by the recession and we are desperate to raise awareness for their plight.
Another simple way to help, would be to organise a food and donation box at your office. Collections can then be arranged, within the Gauteng area, with no further work required from your side. Certificates can provided to both the company and individuals for the valued help and support. Presentations can be arranged for the staff, allowing everyone to know what Long Life Cats & Dogs are doing and where their donations are going.
Flea Market sales items are always welcome. We regularly attend Flea Markets, in an attempt to raise awareness and funds from the sale of these items. Almost anything can be sold, although many of the Flea Markets do not allow second hand clothing.

Have you already learned about the fund raising that goes on in the anipal Twitter community through our hangout called Nip Club? If not, check it out. Not sure how it works or how they identify the shelters they raise money for, but worth checking out. Boris Kitty blogger does fund raising events via Twitter and maybe even blog??? try him too. let me know if I can help connect to BOris.

I wish i was somewhere closer to your shelters, so i could help more.. I’m helping a lot of local shelters in my area. But I can send a free distance healing to all animals that been abused, ill or need healing and recovery. I’ll only need names and optional pictures of the animals, which you can send to my email

That is so incredibly wonderful of you to offer. Thank you very, very much and I will most certainly keep this in mind as I visit all the shelters.
You are most welcome! Anytime, just send in the picture and name of a pet who need treatment, will do all my best!
