PAWS R US (SA) launches the “R100 CAMPAIGN”. We have come to understand just how powerful R100 can be, particularly when given by a large number of passionate humans who want to do good in the world. We know everyone is under financial pressure right now, we know everyone is pulled in different directions by various causes all needing attention – and so we make this one simple request – PLEASE GIVE US YOUR R100?

When we tallied donations received from March into April, we saw first-hand that many R100 donations literally saved us as we faced a mountain of bills. So we have new respect for that R100 note!

PAWS R US (SA) has an operating cost ranging from R100 000 to R120 000 a month (*depending on food and other donations). This funding allows us to take care of the 220 rescued dogs in our care. One helluva tall order in a tough economic and shelter climate. BUT YOUR R100, GIVEN REGULARLY, CAN HELP US TO HELP THOSE WHO CANNOT SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

PAWS R US (SA) is looking for INVESTORS – help us BUILD THE DREAM of our “HAPPY PLACE”!

After 6 years in animal welfare/rescue, PAWS R US (SA) has moved into the LINBER KENNELS facility out in the Tarlton area, JHB. It is time to spread our wings, create a permanent home, and contribute more effectively to both the cause and effects linked to animal welfare/rescue in SA.

Our dream is to build the LINBER KENNELS facility into a top-notch rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing haven for rescue dogs. We also want to establish a home-base for our EDUCATION campaigns, so that we can work with the youth in returning to the core value of COMPASSION and RESPECT for Self and All Life.

To make this dream a reality, we need to BUY the LINBER KENNELS site. And to get that done, we need to find INVESTORS and PARTNERS who want to contribute to something greater than themselves, and help make a real, immediate and practical difference in a world that has lost its way.

The PAWS R US (SA) TRUST has been created as a legal entity – and we now look to spread the net open wide and “go on the hunt” for kindred spirits who want to help build something GOOD. We need INVESTORS of the HEART and MIND – those who want to protect the vulnerable, educate the youth of tomorrow, and know that their investment has directly uplifted lives and communities.

CONTACT: For all enquiries and details related to this search for INVESTORS, and the implications for each INVESTOR within the Trust, please email us on woof@pawsrus.co.za.

We will then communicate in detail re the property specifications and the role of Investors within the Trust, and invite you to our OPEN DAY where we will host interested parties.

*PAWS R US (SA) is a registered NON-PROFIT COMPANY (NPC) and is currently in the process of registering as a PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANISATION (PBO). We have been saving and blessing innocent lives since February 2011.

PAWS R US (SA) has the following fundraising events planned for the rest of the year. Please do come and join us at one or more of these festive outings? Not only does it help our fundraising efforts, but we have been blessed to have a community of “regulars” who follow and support our work, and we would love to include you in that circle!



Humans have the power and potential to bless innocent lives and practice love and compassion, every day. Those who choose to ADOPT from shelters, really are contributing directly to the saving and blessing of lives. By adopting an orphan, rather than supporting a pet shop (and the linked puppy mill industry), or a *breeder, you can contribute directly to the SOLUTION of the pet overpopulation problem in SA, rather than adding to it.

We show you some “happy homing scenes” in our collage below – they speak for themselves as to the wonderful joy it brings for both humans and dogs alike. These are the scenes that make animal rescue SO WORTHWHILE – knowing that a rescue dog that we have taken off the streets and cared for and helped learn to trust again, is flourishing in a home and in a family. We thank you all the special humans who have adopted from us, and who will still adopt from us!


*PAWS R US (SA) wishes to just clarify that, in instances where people are looking for a specific breed of dog, and the dog is not readily available in shelters, breeders have a role to play. However, the crux lies in distinguishing a responsible breeder from an irresponsible one. All too often, the profit motive is the most important priority, and not the health and wellbeing of each litter. Over-breeding within one gene-pool often leads to various problems as a puppy grows into adulthood e.g. hip dysplasia etc. And unfortunately, anyone buying pups from a breeder often only discovers this when it is already too late. If you are going to opt for a puppy from a breeder, there is a LOT of homework that you should do, and you are entitled to ask for references from past clients.
