At Dassenberg Rescue Centre, we believe that animals can work miracles, and this belief underpins the work we do. The beauty of animals – even neglected and abandoned animals – is not just the resilience they embody, but also the bonds they form with people. Our rescue centre is our genesis story, and it’s where we rehabilitate and re-home neglected horses and dogs. These animals started out as victims, but soon became the real heroes – the vital connection in our community outreach work.
We’re now proud to partner with incredible people and community residents in a bigger, more beautiful dream of restoration that spreads far and wide within our local neighbourhood – offering health, hope and new life to children, adults and every living thing caught up in the movement.
LIKE OUR STORY?
We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home neglected horses and dogs, helping them transition from broken to beautiful. We do this by providing food, shelter and love – pure and simple – and we also fight against animal abuse by spreading awareness around this tragic issue.
The establishment of our animal rescue centre opened doors to the people of the community. We quickly realised the incredible healing power animals had among human lives, and we also saw – and ventured to meet – people’s more practical needs of employment and food. We are currently focused on three areas of outreach: Therapy animals, job creation and food distribution.
