Operations

Hermanus Animal Welfare operates on two sites. The one is the kennel complex in Steenbras Street in the industrial area, where all our animals are kept. The second is the welfare charity shop in Mitchell Street in central Hermanus.  At the kennels there are eleven permanent members of staff headed by Lenke Elferink, our kennel manager.. In addition, volunteers come in on a daily basis to care for the cats and dogs. Our work consists mainly in responding to reports of animal abuse and looking after starving, maltreated, abandoned and sick animals and rehoming them.  A dipping and anti-parasite service is also provided at the kennels for a nominal fee.

History

Can you believe it we have been helping the lost, sick and abused animals of Hermanus for the past 45 years. Improvements have been taking place each year but in the last 6 months we have taken a big leap forward and exciting changes have been happening.

The society was founded in 1969 by Lynne Penver and friends Majorie Wallace, Maureen Poole and Tiny Cloete. They realized even then that there was a need to provide care for neglected, lost and sick animals. Initially they cared for the animals in their own homes, paying the costs themselves.

Chairperson's report 2015 - 16

During my 8 years involvement with HAWS there has never been a dull moment.  The most exciting and rewarding part of my involvement is fieldwork.  This is an area where HAWS make a huge difference.  We attend to cases where a variety of animals are affected.

I am privileged to have a very competent committee and take this opportunity to thank them for their commitment to the organization.

Here’s the definition of a committee.

“A committee is a group of people who individually can do nothing, but who, as a group, can meet and decide that nothing can be done.”

I will briefly introduce my committee members to you.

Copper Coin Collection

 

2016 COPPER COIN COLLECTION FOR THE ANIMALS OF THE HERMANUS ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY

The 2015 Copper Coin Collection in aid of unwanted and maltreated dogs and cats was a huge success, thanks to the generosity of the businesses and public of Hermanus. So why not try and do the same again in 2016?!  The Hermanus Animal Welfare Society, in conjunction with the Hermanus Times is once again calling on all animal lovers to drop their copper coins (silver and notes will also be more than welcome) into the bright red and blue collection boxes which will be found at many businesses around town.  HAWS aims to collect FOUR TONS OF COINS during 2016.
