We love dogs, we love cats, we actually love anything with paws! We love being creative and what could be more fun than to be able to create something of what you love most? Dogs, cats and lots of paws! And in doing what we love and doing it with love we will donate 25% of each product sold to to either ASSARO, KAWS or RAD, but we let you decide who it will be donated to. Simply choose who you would like to support from the dropdown menu when adding your item to the cart. And so the love can go a longer way!
ASSARO - Australian Shepherd South African Rescue Organisation
ASSARO is a pro quality life Australian Shepherd Dog rescue organization.
When Ingrid Liberte fostered a deaf Australian Shepherd called Josh, she had a feeling that as time went on more Aussies were going to need new homes. That’s when, in January 2012, the non-profit company, Australian Shepherd South African Rescue Organisation (ASSARO) was started for these rescues, which was subsequently registered in May 2012.
ASSARO NPC is a section 21 non-profit organization that rescues and rehabilitates the Australian Shepherd dog. All Australian Shepherds that are surrendered to us receive a full health check and get vaccinated, dewormed and sterilized if necessary. We rely heavily on donations from our supporters and the proceeds from the sale of our products such as calendars, T-shirts and mugs.
We have a strict adoption policy and ensure that the right home is found, regardless of how long that may take. JHB is the main base where our rescues are cared for and we will facilitate transportation, from anywhere in SA, to ensure that the rescues arrive safely at ASSARO.
KAWS - Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society
We are the voice for the outcasts, a voice for the unwanted. We believe all our pawsome boys and girls deserve a loving home and just like people, they all deserve a second chance at happiness.
Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society (KAWS) is a non-profit organisation with the aim to serve the areas of Rooi Els, Pringle Bay, Betty’s Bay, Kleinmond and Salandra by taking care of the community’s unwanted, mistreated and neglected pets. We also advocate and promote the sterilisation of cats and dogs to curb unwanted breeding in an already overpopulated pet community. We sterilise, dip, vaccinate, deworm and treat illnesses of animals in our low-income communities and provide a safe haven for homeless or surrendered animals until we’re able to place them in good, loving homes.
Time permitting, KAWS visits the Grade 3s and 4s from the KidsCan! Aftercare Centre, a youth development project located in Kleinmond. The children can’t wait for their Pet Care lessons which form part of developing their Life Orientation Skills. They even have to write exams and pass at the end of the year to qualify as KAWS Cadets.

R.A.D. - Rescued Animal Drive
R.A.D. focuses mainly on outreach work in poorer communities and facilitating sterilisation of domestic animals. We are currently working in Hawston, and Botriver. To date we have sterilised over 600 domestic animals in Hawston and over 400 in Botriver. We have removed and rehomed over 100 animals. We also assist the community with subsidised veterinary care, which includes operations such as leg amputations, broken legs, eye operations, blood transfusions in the case of Biliary and general health care. We also have a dipping schedule with dogs who suffer from mange and have successfully treated numerous dos afflicted by this condition
Our focus remains responsible pet ownership, where sterilisation is a prerequisite for subsidised treatment and assistance
We also aim to improve the lives and conditions of animals waiting to be adopted in local shelters, and we are currently assisting Overberg Pet Care Society with their kennels in Botriver
It is our dream to have a small place of our own.
