Why Dassenberg Rescue

Dassenberg Rescue may be a small rescue centre, but we punch way beyond our weight in terms of impact. In short, we are a small rescue centre with a big heart. Like many, our centre is full to capacity and we have to work harder and harder to find good homes for our dogs and horses.

But we still continue to make a difference in our communities by reaching out to animals that are suffering due to extreme poverty. We also believe that animals can work miracles. Our Outreach Project seeks to help ‘at-risk’ kids by giving them important life skills and also offering them a safe place where they can de-stress and experience some healing.

Please support our upcoming Vintage Sale so that we can continue to do good.

Adoption Day

The pressure on our centre is enormous and we are working hard to find good homes for our animals so that we can make space for other dogs and horses in need.

On 1 October we held our first Adoption Day at Constantia Village.  Our team worked incredibly hard to prepare the dogs so that they would be adoption ready.  One activity was to take groups of dogs for walks on the beach. Trips in the car ensures they won’t find the journey stressful. Free walking on the beach tests obedience. Ball throwing ensures good recall. We believe they score full marks.

Our efforts are paying dividends and over the past few months we have found good homes for 7 happy dogs.

Appeal for Clothing
