OUR MISSION

Food, shelter and love
– pure and simple.

At Dassenberg Rescue Centre, we express our love in simple actions, rather than big words. When an animal first steps onto our farm, they move into a new life. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-house neglected horses and dogs, and help them transition from neglected to loved, from sad to happy, from desperate to hopeful – and even beautiful.

We fight against animal abuse, specializing in before and after stories – stories that revolve around the efforts of incredible people, animal people.

ADOPT

Become part of their ‘after’ story.

If you feel you can offer these beautiful animals what they need and deserve, and you have been approved by the adoption department you could be part of making a once very abused and neglected animal a very grateful and loyal companion. Please contact Mayanna today to make an appointment. She will introduce you to the animals up for adoption and  explain the adoption procedures to you.

SUCCESS STORY

DeeCee & Rocky

At Dassenberg we are looking for special people, animal people. Susy Thirion is an example of just one of these sorts of people.

 

“I started volunteering at Dassenberg in 2010. At that time we adopted Rocky. Our little poodle, Zoe, has become best friends with Rocky and they love to run on the beach and play together. I wasn’t looking to adopt another dog but fell in love with DeeCee during the Dassenberg Sleepathon last year.  It took a couple of months to get DeeCee properly settled but he is now part of our family!”

DONATE + SPONSOR

Sometimes, money can buy love.

Dassenberg is a non-profit company, who receive no Government funding that results us in relying heavily on donations and income of the public. Just to give you an idea, our food bill alone runs over R13 000 a month and then we have not counted in groomers, medical expenses or general maintenance.
