SAMAST November 2013


Following the armed robbery at our clinic on the 19th of September we were forced to take radical steps to ensure the safety and security of our staff and patients. Coin Security donated and installed six cameras at no charge.YOU GUYS ARE ROCK STARS!

In addition to the cameras, 86 meters of palisade fencing and a remote controlled access gate with intercom has been erected to create an 'inner safety zone'. But to cover the enormous cost of the gate, fencing and intercom we had to steal from Paul to pay Peter and our mass sterilisation and primary treatment programme may take a severe knock.

SAMAST Security

But even with all the trials we have faced this year, SA.MAST and our supporters have made it possible for us to PREVENT hundreds of thousands of unwanted births, RESPOND to hundreds of medical emergencies, PROVIDE primary treatment to thousands of cats, dogs, puppies and kittens, DELIVER shelter and ERECT running wires for hundreds of needy dogs and RESCUE countless starving, neglected and abused cats and dogs.



SA.MAST is incredibly grateful for your assistance and for standing by us through thick and thin. We are a little bruised and battered,
BUT we are STILL standing thanks to you.


Now though, we have to look to the future and harsh reality facing SA.MAST. It is heartbreaking that we may have to slash our mass sterilisation & primary assist programme for the next four months in order to recover from all the hard knocks of the 2013 year.

We are pleading to you to help us with one last big push and in return we PROMISE to continue to give you the donor, every reason to be proud of us and the thousands of pet guardians in Khayelitsha who rely on SA.MAST to help them to be responsible and caring guardians.

How you can help:

• No donation amount is too small! • We can issue Section 18A Tax Donation Certificates
