Welcome to Animal Protection Network (APN) – Alberton

APN is an animal welfare organization that assists with the care, rescue, sterilization, vaccination, and rehoming of neglected, abandoned, and stray animals in Alberton, Gauteng. We work closely with the Brackenhurst Veterinary Clinic/Hospital, which provides us with reduced rates for sterilisations, vaccinations, and micro-chipping. When we have the resources, we run a feeding scheme in the area where we assist under-privileged families  by providing them with monthly contributions of dog food. We also feed feral cat colonies in Alberton, and run regular trapping and sterilisation events to sustainably manage these populations in a humane manner. As we are non-profit, we rely solely on public donations and money raised through the sale of our home-made crafts to assist us with the work we do.

Our vet bill is sky-high again 
This year has been a very busy one, and we have been inundated with stray and injured animals. So far, we have had over 20 animals coming through our doors, each requiring at least a sterilisation procedure and vaccinations. Many of them have also needed extensive surgery and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this means that our vet bill is once again over the R 10 000 mark and getting larger every day. If you have any spare change, we would be very grateful for the donation.

GoFund Me – we want a shelter!

Our biggest dream is to have a shelter, right here in Alberton! This would take the pressure off the Alberton SPCA, as well as support our need to temporarily house rescued dogs and cats. There are a few potential properties that are suitable, but we need funding before we even get there. We have a new GoFundMeSA page that will help us raise money for our shelter! If you would like to donate to APN, please click on the link below. Thank you!
