Support R.A.D. -Rescued Animal Drive

R.A.D. is a great non-profit animal rescue organisation in Helderberg & Grabouw as well as Botriver Township area who’s focus is saving animals, and providing them with the care they deserve, and lastly finding them their perfect forever home.

Our Personal Experience with R.A.D.

Our family have had 2 successful adoptions of our dogs through RAD who have made the adoption process so easy and smooth. Our first adoption was Buddy in 2021 who was an 6 week old puppy who was found in Grabouw with his 2 other siblings and was lucky enough to be rescued by RAD, we adopted him when he was a adorable 8 week old puppy and he is now 3 years old, he is such a clever, happy and loving dog, he is such a big part of our family, here are his photo’s.


Our most recent adoption was now in March 2024 with Foxy (formerly known as “Fifi” with RAD), she was found in a drug house in Grabouw Township in February this year and was surrendered to R.A.D. She was a nervous dog with bad health conditions, including mange and parasites when they rescued her, and she had obviously survived many stressful experiences. Thanks to her RAD Foster Moms for taking such good care of her, she has transformed into a healthy dog filled with love. From the moment we brought her to our home 3 weeks ago she fitted into our family so well and has brought us so much love and joy.

He has been through a lot, he was found with a gigantic hole the size of a fist on his upper leg. All attempts to save his leg was futile and amputation was the only option, despite that he now has 3 legs he is totally mobile and enjoys playing with the other dogs at his foster home, he is gentle and loving. But we are yet again hoping for a miracle! And that is where YOU come in, if you think Mario can find a life of love and chill with you – please inbox us or email

God instructs us in the bible in Proverbs 12:10 it says, “The righteous care for the needs of their animals.” In addition to companionship, animals teach so many life lessons – and they teach us responsibility in caring for them.
