. Wagging Tails Animal Rescue

    Wagging Tails Animal Rescue (WTAR) is a non-profit organization that was established in June 2020. WTAR strives to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome stray, neglected, and abused animals. We provide a crucial role in the communities of Durban.

    Wagging Tails Animal Rescue is run part-time by three females with the support of the public. WTAR has opened its doors to many animals. Being an NPO, funds for vet, food, and kennel bills are always needed. WTAR relies on the public’s generosity and support through donations. The Covid-19 pandemic has only made this tougher to get donations and have fundraisers.

    Your contribution provides homeless and rescued dogs/cats with veterinary care under the direction of our veterinarian who focuses on sterilization, vaccination, injury, illness diagnosis, and treatment.

    Our rehabilitation experts and animal behaviorists help transform the abused and neglected into healthy, happy animals that get a second chance at life within a lovinghome.

    Once fed, sheltered, socialized, rehabilitated, and loved, WTAR rescue animals are ready to find their forever homes - with your help!
    Nothing makes us happier than when you find a space in your heart and home for a rescue pet. To find your new fur-ever friend visit our Adoptions page.

    . Pet overpopulation and how you can help

    Pet overpopulation is due to pet owners not spaying and neutering their pets and this leads to the euthanasia rates going up.
    In six years, one female dog and her offspring can produce 67 000 puppies.
    In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce 370 000 kittens.

    Why Spay and Neuter?
    1. Increase in life span
    2. Reduce:
     • Roaming
     • Aggression
     • Risk of cancer
     • Risk of feline aids
     • Spraying and marking
     • Risk of feline leukaemia
    3. Decrease in overpopulation
    At Wagging Tails Animal Rescue, we are a non-kill rescue however we often witness these tragedies daily: people who abandon their pets; colonies of feral cats left to scrounge for themselves and their offspring; families leaving litters of puppies and kittens dumped abandoned...; puppies for sale in pet stores and by backyard breeders online or through personal ads, with potential owners unaware that they are purchasing offspring of ill, overbred mothers living in conditions in which you would not house felons. All these pets are victims of or contributors to pet overpopulation.

    By choosing to adopt, you will not only save a life, but you will also ensure that your adoption fee is going to help the next unwanted pet that comes in the door of the shelter. The adoption fees include spaying or neutering, vaccinations, deworming etc.
