Go on a Journey of Compassion: Volunteer with the Animal Welfare Society of Stellenbosch.

If you are passionate about animals, seize the opportunity to get involved in an unparalleled volunteer adventure at the Animal Welfare Society of Stellenbosch (AWSS). The facility is located on the Devon Valley Road, a mere stone’s throw, just 5 minutes away from the bustling town centre.

For 67 years, the AWSS has stood as a beacon of hope, dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in need within our community. The AWSS offers a range of activities that allow volunteers to connect with these animals in meaningful ways. Whether you’re looking to share a moment of joy by walking a dog, seeking tranquillity among the cats and kittens, or perhaps hoping to make a difference in a more substantial manner, there is something for everyone.

The AWSS prides itself on being a welcoming space for everyone—individuals looking for a solitary escape with animals, groups seeking a shared experience of compassion, or families eager to instil values of kindness and responsibility in their children. Their doors are open to volunteers from 10 am to 3 pm daily, throughout the year, ensuring that every day is an opportunity to make a positive impact.

Embarking on this journey not only enriches the lives of the animals you’ll meet but also offers a fulfilling experience that can foster personal growth, community connection, and a profound sense of accomplishment.

For those interested in learning more about their mission, exploring volunteer opportunities, or simply wishing to know how you can support the AWSS, we invite you to visit their website. There, you’ll find comprehensive information on all programmes, initiatives, and the many ways you can help.

Please join AWSS in their unwavering commitment to animal welfare and become part of a community that’s making a real difference. Together, we can continue to save lives and spread compassion, one animal at a time.
