FAW Community Veterinary Clinic

WE ARE STARTING A COMMUNITY VET CLINIC IN FISANTEKRAAL! This has been a dream for a long, long time. Thanks to some INCREDIBLE people, this dream is finally going to be coming true: -------------------------------------------------------------- We are expanding our work and will have our own surgery where sterilisations and minor injuries can be done. In Fisantekraal.

What is this empty shipping container? Why, it's our surgery (you have to use your imagination for now, hehehe)! Next step: vinyl easy-clean flooring and painting the inside.  As you can see there is still LOTS of work to be done but we have the bare bones of it and that's important.  --------------------------------------------------  Please get in touch if you can assist with anything for our surgery or anything else.

An ENORMOUS thank you goes to Donovan Tarr and Nfinite for donating a shipping container to us! We are absolutely over the moon about it; we could not have taken the next steps on our new journey without it.  YOU ROCK!

We are absolutely being blown away by the outpouring of support we're getting for our animal clinic-to-be! <3  So many of you are cheering us on, volunteering to help, pledging support, donating, and getting in touch to find out how to help. With so much that is stressful around these days, it is so good to know how caring and helpful people can be.  We have so many thank yous and we'll try our best to keep up. Please pop us a mail if you've donated so we can say thank you! info@faw.za.org

In case you thought that the FAW Community Vet Clinic was no longer happening... it most definitely still is! We've been tjoepstil working away to complete the container so it is ready for the surgery to go in.  And here we are - FINALLY READY!

Honourary volunteer Sandy approves very much of the progress of the surgery but she knows how many dogs and cats (and sometimes even bunnies and birds!) need help where she lives so she is asking if anyone can help 'met n paar Rand'... :-)  General: Nedbank - Fisantekraal Animal Welfare - Cheque account - Acc no: 1039094171 – Branch no: 10 39 10 (Tygervalley) Ref: Surgery  (Sandy also says: please let the FAW people know when you donate so they can say thank you!)

Our new food container is operational! :-D And, of course, our 'bouncer', Killer, has to make sure all is ship-shape too, hehehe!  THANK YOU so much to all who made this possible. Work is now in progress on the operating theatre which will be in the old food container... keep you posted!

Insulation going into the new food container. ALL by volunteers in their own time. By the weekend it should be fully operation.  We urgently need funds to continue with this much-needed project. ANY donation helps! (One of our volunteers paid for the insulation herself just so we could get it done...) With the predicted 16000 new homes at Greenville and how fast Fisantekraal is grown, it is critical that we get our surgery up and running before winter hits. You can help make the difference.

This weekend, we saw some hard work and progress! Now our new container is safe n sound from burglaries (sadly a fact of life!).  Our next step is drywalling, insulation, and vinyl flooring. BUT! This is cleaning out our account. :-o This clinic is absolutely crucial and we are so grateful to those who have donated towards it.

It took quite some time for Jason, who works at Tygerberg Animal Hospital to angle-grind his way through from our old treatment room to the old food container aka new surgery - we didn't realise it was stainless steel-lined! :-o  Thank you, JASON!  --------------------------------------- To find out how to help, please email info@faw.za.org, message us here, or call 082 773 2089 or 062 258 3547

And here's the new food container! It is VERY VERY VEEEEERYYYY hot in there so we desperately need to find an affordable way to insulate it. If any of you have contacts please let us know!  An ENORMOUS thank you to 'nfinite' - product development and ingredient supply company specializing in the food industry - who donated this shipping container, without which we couldn't proceed, and to Lydia of Power Rig for organising delivery.

This is what it looks like at our containers - on a QUIET day!  At the back you see the ladies at our shop, on the right is the tail end of the vaccinations queue, on the left a lady sits on an upturned crate by the newly-delivered kennels while she waits to have her dog bathed, and, behind the vaccination queue is another queue for the food container.

Yesterday 10 volunteers slogged away in the heat from early in the morning until 5 o'clock. They accomplished a huge amount of work! It is SUPER exciting and will be making an enormous difference in future...

WE ARE STARTING A COMMUNITY VET CLINIC IN FISANTEKRAAL!

This is one of our old vans - a well-known sight to the animals (these 3 know us well and are very well aware that there are treats to be had!) and people whom we help. Since Dr Alex joined us, we've reduced this because he has been doing more treatments on site. But just imagine if we didn't have to drive up and down and all around for most of these cases.  Imagine we could do most of those things in Fisantekraal...
