From desperate
to beautiful.


Sometimes, money can buy love.

Dassenberg is a non-profit company that receives no government funding. This means we rely heavily on donations and income from the public. Just to give you an idea, our animal food bill alone runs over R13 000 a month – and does not even include the cost of groomers, medical expenses or general maintenance.

If you like our philosophy, please support us by making a donation.

We’re looking for the best kind of people. Animal people. People people.

Animal volunteers

Every Saturday morning you have the opportunity to join us on our farm and interact with our amazing rescue animals. You can take our lovely dogs for walkies; you can brush and cuddle them. They’ll love you for it. Our horses too!

We are open from 8am–11am, and only 40 minutes north of Cape Town via the N7. Please contact our volunteer co-ordinator, Grenville, at:

Community outreach

If you are a registered child therapist or social worker looking to donate your time to our programmes, please get in touch.

We also welcome enthusiastic volunteers who’d like to help with various activities – from delivering food parcels to general assistance.

Please contact Mayanna today to make an appointment. She will explain all the ins and outs of our programmes.


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.
