African tailsIt’s a fact: one unsterilised female dog and her offspring can give rise to 67 000 dogs in 6 years.

But in the last 6 years at African Tails, the opposite has happened: MySchool funds have helped sterilise a whopping 6000 animals (mostly dogs, and some cats)! If you do the maths, that means hundreds of millions of puppies won’t be born into a life of abuse and neglect on the township streets. And let’s not forget all the animals African Tails has rescued and rehomed (about 1000 so far), all the empty tummies they’ve filled, all the kennels they’ve delivered to protect dogs from the sweltering sun and pouring rain, and all the life-saving medical treatments they’ve provided to doggie damsels in distress.

African Tails aims to give every abused and neglected street dog the happy ending it deserves. Sure, the township isn’t the ideal setting for a fairytale-style happy ending. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Just look at Boi Bei (meaning “treasured baby” in Chinese). She had been abused, burned, starved and neglected when she was resuced by African Tails in early 2013. Today, she literally looks like a different dog, who gets all the love she needs and deserves from her wonderful new family.
