CO-SANC is a compassionate, no-kill but scientifically run cat shelter and animal adoption centre. They are not a new charity, but it is a new place, being a co-operative venture between a veterinary clinic and 5 pro-life animal charities.
CO-SANC does not take in animals directly from the public because they control numbers strictly and have an admission and quarantine process controlled by their vet. Admissions are strictly by arrangement with one of the participating charities, and all our animals are sourced from them. Cats live on the property. Dogs and other animals are brought in on weekends for the public to view.
Apart from the cleaner/caretaker, all staff, including the vet, work on a voluntary basis, so all donations benefit the animals directly. CO-SANC is based on lovely country property in Nooitgedacht between the Lion Park and Muldersdrift.
They provide a compassionate, pro-life but scientifically managed cat sanctuary and adhere to the following;
- Adopt out sterilised, vaccinated, dewormed, micro-chipped and viral-tested cats.
- Source all their animals from existing pro-life charities.
- Pass every cat through a 12-point quarantine process before available.
- Always take back any animal with one of the microchips.
The Skin & Body Renewal team got together in December 2009, to help build and paint a new puppy run for the puppies that CO-SANC started receiving and also donated bags and bags full of towels to CO-SANC.
