Xolani Project

Xolani is a poverty stricken area of Grahamstown / Makhanda in desperate need for veterinary assistance.

 

For the past few years a member of the Xolani Community has been running a feeding scheme in the area using dog food donated by members of the public to help the dog owners keep their dogs well fed and cared for.

 

While the feeding scheme has ensured that many of these dogs are in good condition, breeding and mange continue to be a serious problem. There are many puppies being born and as a result of the good food the dogs are having big litters of up to seven and nine puppies at a time. These large litters of pups put huge strain on the mothers and there are simply not enough homes out there for all the puppies being born leading to many of these dogs becoming strays having to fend for themselves.

 

Our aim is to sterilise as many dogs as possible within this area but we cannot do it without the public's support and funding. We would like to get to a point where we have enough funding to do weekly sterilisations in Xolani as we know this will make a huge difference to the wellbeing of both the animals and people living in this community.

 

All donations made with the reference "Xolani" are used to help the dogs (and some cats!) in this area and nothing else! Sterilisations will be the core focus with some mange treatment where necessary.
