Shelter Life

Wow so they say any publicity is good publicity. I think every pro life shelter in South Africa will vehemently disagree after the social media frenzy, followed by the Carte Blanche insert about a no kill shelter that was investigated by the SPCA after calls of neglect recently. There are many incredible shelters out there […]

I’m getting back to my roots!

I’m getting back to my roots! And no I don’t mean my grey roots but I was seriously thinking about that. But that’s another story for another day. Towards the end of last year 2 of our caregivers decided to leave our shores and move overseas. It seems to be an epidemic in our country […]

It’s been a month of medical mayhem here at Dogtown and we’re only half way through. We actually can’t believe just how many of the dogs in our care needed veterinary care the past few weeks. From Bee stings to emergency operations we’ve had it all. There were so many vet visits it felt like […]

Our boy had all the wrong boxes checked when it came to being an easily adoptable dog. One, he was old and has numerous supplements for his old bones. Two, he’s terrified of thunder […]

Raising Lawrence

The Escapades of Foster poopy Lawrence Ramblings of a Crazy Dog Lady I know there are many valid reasons why people choose a puppy when adding a furkid to their family but boy are they hard work. For the life of me why they don’t adopt a nice middle aged dog from a shelter will […]

Poopy Palooza

Puppy Palooza

It’s been a Puppypalooza this past month at Dogtown! As a rescue centre that focuses on rehabilitation we don’t have poopies very often as we seem to end up with dogs once people have messed them up during their poopy period. Or just adorable adult dogs that people no longer want. So it’s been a […]
