Paws for a Cause is our In-House Welfare Project, setup as a non-profit organisation. It is an initiative of Dr Ros Malan, driven by her passion for animals and the realisation that all living things deserve adequate veterinary care.

We therefore offer a service to the community who are unable to afford private veterinary fees. We anticipate conducting further clinics into poor communities, where access to transport is limited, to provide the care they require for their pets.

We are very conscious of educating the rural communities and aim to include education in every case we deal with and treat.

Through Veterinay House Hospital, Paws for a Cause has access to modern equipment and expertise, giving those in need the best possible care. Donations are made by compassionate clients and a percentage of fees from selected hospital procedures are donated to Paws for a Cause. We are actively involved with sterilising feral cats, normally done on a Tuesday at Townbush Clinic. We assist with sterilisations of pets which have been rescued and will be rehomed, and have worked together with a few rehoming organisations to ensure these pets are vaccinated and sterilised before being adopted.

Paws for a Cause also does collection drives and our fantastic community gets involved and assists in whichever way possible. We have started a yearly “Knit-a-thon” project whereby we collect any blankets to donate to an area in need. We hope to get involved in more projects in the coming months.

We are grateful for the loyal support from the community as well as donations done on behalf of Veterinary House Hospital. Without this funding Paws for a Cause would not be able to sustain the work we undertake.
