ABOUT US: Stilfontein Animal Shelter is a totally NO KILL facility, we do not kill healthy or treatable animals even if the shelter is full. Euthanasia is reserved only for terminally ill animals or those considered a danger to human society, we use many strategies to promote our shelter animals by expanding our resources using volunteers, excellent housing and medical protocols.
We use the following programmes;
• Spay/neuter programs
• Adoption programs
• Retention programs
