The AWS Helderberg caters for a wide area of communities – Somerset West, Strand, Gordon’s Bay, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Macassar, Eerste River and Grabouw. We receive no monetary help from the government so must raise all our own funds for the upkeep of the kennels, feed and care for stray and unwanted animals as well as paying veterinary costs for the animals in their care. The kennel facility in Gordon’s Bay operates at a maximum capacity of 130 dogs and 50 cats.

Simpler than ever


We completely rely on public donations and the generous spirit of animal lovers. We are always looking for volunteers to help out.
