Animal Outreach in Cape Town

As a pro-life, registered non-profit organisation, we rely on the support of caring individuals and corporates to assist us in fulfilling our mission to bring relief to animals in distress, whether through intervention, education, medical assistance or re homing.

Located in the False Bay area of the southern Cape Peninsula, we typically serve the communities of Ocean View, Masiphumelele and Red Hill, Mountain View, Capricorn, although we assist animals and guardians throughout the Western Cape when our services are needed.

All the animals in our care have been abandoned, abused or neglected so following rescue, individuals are rehabilitated using best veterinary and animal behavioral practices to prepare them for adoption into new homes.

TEARS works hard to re-unite lost animals with their guardians, and carries out a wider program of veterinary outreach and humane education in our communities, that promotes the responsibility and burden of care we have towards the animals that share our lives.

Our vision is one of continuous improvement and expansion in order to rescue, rehabilitate, re-home, or re-unite every domestic animal that has nowhere else to turn and is in need of a champion.
