Appeal for sponsorship

July 2020 Hounds & Hooves

money can buy love.


Sponsorship, Alternative to Adoption
Dassenberg is a non-profit company, who receive no Government funding, that results in us relying heavily on donations and income from the public. Just to give you an idea, our dog food bill alone runs over R13 000 a month and then we have not counted in groomers, medical expenses or general maintenance.Our pro-life philosophy means that we attempt to give all our animals the best quality of life possible.  Sometimes it’s just not practical for people to adopt another animal.  In this case, it is possible to sponsor a specific dog or horse.Sponsors are welcome to visit animals as often as they would like to.  Dassenberg undertakes to communicate regularly with the Sponsors, keeping them informed of any newsworthy developments.

Success Story

The day-to-day running of our Rescue Centre can be unpredictable to say the least.  Our founder, Mayanna is often called out at short notice to respond to a rescue situation or an animal in need.  At any one time, our Centre is home to more than 30 dogs and 30 horses, with that comes the inevitable Vet visits.

Dassenberg is enormously grateful to Sonja Mueller and her husband Karl-Heinz for donating a much-needed bakkie.

‘We would like to thank you for your generosity. The impact this will have on our ability to come to the rescue of other dogs and horses that are in desperate need is massive!’

Mayanna Muter
