Pit Pals is committed to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming Pitbulls and other power breeds, including but not limited to, Bull Terriers and Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Pit Pals is dedicated to educating the public on how to treat and love animals in general while focusing on Pitbulls and educating the public on how to deal with the breed properly and to show the public, including kids, that dogs are sentient beings, and not someone’s property to do with as they please. Our education plan will include the necessity to sterilise your animal and will work with our supporters and fundraising team to raise money to assist those families who do not have the funds to sterilise their dogs. We believe sterilisation will lead to less over population and is extremely important. We will also educate potential dog owners the importance of not supporting “backyard” breeders and to support local welfares to ensure the animals we have rescued have an opportunity to be given a new home
We are a pro quality of life shelter who is dedicated to the physical and mental state of an animal. We are dedicated to assisting the public where necessary to help train them along with and their dog to try and reduce the need of animal surrendering and thus adding to the overflowing shelters.
“I have always being a very compassionate person who is interested in welfare & helping those that don’t have a voice. I have extensive experience in fund raising and events and I knew I could put this skill to use. I found in my time as an animal welfare volunteer that Pitbulls really do have a bad rap here in SA, and that they really do need a dedicated welfare to protect them, so it was an easy decision for me to join Nadia, Robyn & Francois to open Pit Pals.”
“It took me all of 0.2 seconds to fall hopelessly in love with a little rescue Pit from Eerste Rivier. I was hooked. This girl taught me everything I needed to know about the breed. Proud, dignified but above all, loving. 3 years later I still fall in love with every Pit I meet. They are totally addictive”
“I come from Europe where the Pittie breed is banned in many of the countries there. I adopted my very first rescue dog just over a year ago, such a loving Pitbull cross, Makala. Through this adoption I discovered the condition of dogs in SA and I wanted to find a way to get involved, especially with Pibulls who have become a breed very close to my heart”
