CHAIN is a registered, non-profit organisation (NPO 77158) working hands on in the communities of Tulbagh, Ceres, Prince Alfred Hamlet, Wolseley and Gouda.Our vision is "To create an environment of animal well-being in the Boland"These 5 animal freedoms are our guidelines: Freedom from hunger & thirst (by providing fresh water and the right type and amount of food to keep them fit) Freedom from discomfort (by making sure that animals have the right type of environment including shelter & somewhere comfortable to rest) Freedom from pain, injury & disease (by preventing them from getting ill or injured and by making sure animals are diagnosed and treated rapidly if they do) Freedom to behave normally (by making sure animals have enough space, proper facilities and the company of other animals of their own kind) Freedom from fear & distress (by making sure their conditions and treatment avoid mental suffering)
Our Mission has 5 areas of focus:1. We shall manage the animal population through effective programmes of sterilization and necessary euthanasia;2. We shall establish well managed foster homes;3. We shall promote education through community involvement;4. We shall strive to provide affordable veterinary services for the less privileged members of the community;5. We shall establish effective fundraising programmes to create sustainable financial stability
The organisation is totally reliant on donations and volunteers to continue it's work.
All donations help (whether it be time, money, food, blankets, second-hand kennels, cages or even toys) and will directly impact the animals in the Boland.
