Langebaan Animal Care is a non-profit organisation for animals who have been abandoned, abused, lost or neglected.
Here are some of our main tasks and priorities to make a difference in Langebaan:
We work in community to educate the public in the care of domestic animals
We strive constantly to prevent neglect and abuse.
We feed starving animals and ensure that they get water and shelter, wherever possible.
We assist the community to get access to sterilisation to control the population of homeless animals.
Home lost pets
We help lost and abandoned pets to find missing owners and homes.
We assist traumatised animals to rehabilitate and be ready for adoption.
We facilitate the right fit between animals and adoptive parents.
We work with local agencies to help animals get protection, where we are unable to.
Our vision is that utopia where everyone that has pet's cares for them properly, exercises them both physically and mentally and most of all love them, as the pets' love is unconditional and ours should be too.
To prevent neglect, abuse and cruelty to animals in our local area.
Educate, advise, interact and share the special relationship between owners & pets in our community.
Who we are
LAC formed in 1995 and was the brainchild of Lynne Mills and soon after joined by Charmian Godfrey. Together, they went from homing handfuls of animals in their own houses to the construction of a full shelter and an entire organisation where, over the years, along with the subsequent volunteers that joined them, LAC has cared for many hundreds of dogs and cats.
LAC is now the mainstay of animal care in the Langebaan community and surrounding areas. We are more than just a shelter; we operate extensive fieldwork, clinics and community outreach programmes to help provide care for the animals, and education and support for their owners.
We work with governmental bodies and law enforcement agencies to bring about change in the way animals are treated.
We are continuing to grow and develop, playing an ever increasing role bringing care, rehabilitation and re-homing to animals in need, and sharing our vision with the community we serve.
