The Giving is Living Initiative serves to collect donations, monetary or otherwise, to distribute to the many animal charities in South Africa - focussing on the ones that are in the most amount of need. We also use monetary donations to purchase food for township animals and provide kennels for dogs without shelter. Everything that the money is spent on is documented on our website so you can see exactly where your funds go to.

If you choose to donate please use GIVING IS LIVING as a reference code as the charity trust we use receives and distributes money towards other charity organisations, if there is no reference we will not receive the funds.

If you are donating a kennel please use the reference code KENNELS (NAME) - The name you put in the reference code will be the name that appears on the kennel badge.

If you are donating towards food for furries please use the reference code: FOOD (NAME)

Thank you for your support.
