About us

CHAIN is a registered, non-profit organisation (NPO 77158) working hands on in the communities of Tulbagh, Ceres, Prince Alfred Hamlet, Wolseley and Gouda.  We also have a newly launched branch based in the Riebeek Valley.

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

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.

You are an abomination and dare to call yourself an animal shelter working for animals' best interests. We have heard stories of your putting animals to sleep.

This is an ignorant comment. Where must all the dogs go??

Hi Dianne

We would like to assure you that every care is taken to accommodate and care for as many animals as we can,

Unfortunately not everyone can be saved. FORTUNATELY we have people like CHAIN doing their best to give all these helpless animals a 2nd chance! Appreciate them

Dianne. Don't you think that there is an over population of animals who need homes? It's sad yes but sometimes necessary to euthanize. That's why we adopt.

Hi Anneliese

This album merely shows some of the animals we have rescued and the dog is not up for adoption. please check our Facebook site for adoptions

Your website is very poor with information. One at least wants to know if the dog is male or female .. ?Please advise the sex of this dog and if still there?
