SA.MAST has sterilised and provided primary treatment for free to over 7000 cat and dog patients throughout Khayelitsha and on any given day our Animal Ambulance service responds to an average of between five to fifteen emergencies.

Khayelitsha Map

Khayelitsha consists of 28 recognised areas and 53 subsections.
For example, Site C has 11 subsections with several thousand people living in each section.

Site B Site C

treasureSite B: Local Government has given the SPCA over R500 000 to manage a mass sterilisation campaign in Site B and possibly Harare. The SPCA has expressed their gratitude to SA.MAST for the many years of hard work and hundreds and hundreds of sterilisations we have already performed in this area alone. We are enormously proud and very pleased to have been able to make this final mass animal sterilisation phase that much easier to conduct.

SA.MAST will of course remain committed to the maintenance and management of the area for years and years to come.

treasureSite C: This area is NEXT to Site B. In this area, SA.MAST has already sterilised hundreds and hundreds of cats and dogs too, but there is more to be done. Though we are not receiving much needed financial support from government, we will do our VERY best to ensure that at least 80% of all cats and dogs over 3 months old are sterilised, vaccinated and treated for parasites within the next six months.


We have trained, experienced and compassionate staff, vehicles, clinic and a boat load of enthusiasm and commitment.
BUT, we do not have a treasure chest stashed at our clinic!

Site B and Site C Are Neighbours

Kittens and puppies who are born in one area often find themselves growing up (if they survive) in a neighbouring area BEFORE they have been sterilised.

So while their mother may have been sterilised in Site B, her offspring, who were too young to be sterilised, find themselves living in a neighbouring area. Here they continue the cycle of producing unwanted or neglected litters because they were never sterilised.


BUT, if two mass sterilisation campaigns are taking place at the same time in neighbouring areas, this 'cross pollination' is radically reduced when as many patients as possible are sterilised when they are old enough to undergo the procedure.

Could you PLEASE help us fund our Site C campaign?

What about the rest of Khayelitsha?

We will of course continue to respond to the daily sterilisation requests we get from caring pet guardians throughout Khayelitsha too, the largest informal settlement in the Western Cape, and second largest in SA.

So far this year, we have already sterilised over 450 patients.
