March 2024 News Letter


The IOPSA KZN team arrived with their family, co-workers and friends and installed 2 x 5000L Afritank Limited Tanks in our puppy and teenage area. This is going to be life changing.
(Last year they installed a 5000L tank and pump to help us in our adult cabins)
IOPSA also treated their staff and ours and visitors at the centre to a wonderful Braai which they provided.
The kids got busy bathing pups, and then spent the day giving them kisses and cuddles. We are so grateful to have been blessed by these incredible humans and their kindness and generosity. Without their help, we would never be able to reach our dreams.
It was such a fabulous day, and we are so honoured to have been selected as their charity again on “World Plumbing Day”.
Thank you so much to Garth and Bernadette and to Steve and Mahen and of course the whole of IOPSA for donating your time and helping us🙂

Sensory Garden Project

One of the many things on the list of things to do at the adoption centre, is to create “Sensory Gardens” for our fur babies.
So this week we started the project in one of our “Teen” areas, and hope soon to add these fun, enrichment gardens to all our puppy and adult areas.
It’s a big, and costly job as we have many areas to cover. So we are reaching out to our supporters to see if anyone can help with donations of any of the plants / items below.
Ornamental grasses
Tree stumps
Pots for plants
Wind chimes
We’d love you to pop in, so feel free to drop off and come for puppy cuddles.

One of our longest residents

Meet Nitro a 4 year old male pittie.
He is such a gentle boy who just wants to lay next to you and feel your love…. He is a big softie and would love to be a lap dog 😁
He needs to be an only dog and have company during the day!
He has been here a while now and desperately needs to find his forever home
We KNOW it’s out there!

A Huge thank you to Geochem

A huge thank you to Geochem for donating these 3 x 25L drums of Bleach to Paw Prints Rescue and Rehoming – NPC 2018/554039/08
This donation is just amazing, as you can’t begin to imagine how many bottles we go through with cleaning outside areas and puppy rooms twice a day, every day.
We are SO VERY grateful.
Thank you so much Geochem with love from all our rescue pups.

Born In March 2023 AND STILL HERE.

Bothas Hill KZN
These babies have been with us for so long. Grown up here and they overlooked time and time again.
So sad, as they really are lovely dogs, and deserve a family to love.
They cannot grow up here, it’s just not fair on them. Please come adopt a young adult, you will not regret giving one a home.
They are all gorgeous boys, medium in size.
Adore other dogs, great with people. Haven’t met a cat but they under a year so would be fine with some training.
They all sterilised and microchipped and fully vaccinated. They live their walks and playing in our dog parks.
Our gorgeous brown dogs, that never get chosen 😞
Meet Spencer, Sawyer, and Seymour


Get it Durban

Grab your coffee, grab a copy and have a read.
Thank you so much Get It Durban

School Support

We had some Thomas More College students and their two teachers come visit us.
These young children are always giving back to the community and various organisations, so as a thank you to them, their teachers contacted us, to ask if they could come visit, so the kids can see where their donations go.
Of course we said yes, we would absolutely love to have you all.
It was such a great morning, and the kids had so much fun, and so did our babies.
Tracy and Robert and to the wonderful students and family and friends, thank you for all you do, we really hope you come back soon.
We love hearing laughter run through our shelter, such a happy sound.
