Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre is situated in Joostenbergvlakte approximately 40 klm from Cape Town CBD, bordering on the edge of Fisantekraal in the Western Cape.
The Centre rents approximately 12 hectares of the original Uitsig Farm from Garden City Properties who purchased the property 13 years ago.
Denay Saunders, the founder member has been in residence since 2007 and although there have always been rescue animals on the farm, the Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre was only registered as an NPO in September 2009, NPO “090162”
The former idea of boarding kennels grew into the Animal Rescue Centre, as it was recognized that a safe haven was needed for ‘throw away’ pets. These circumstances then proved necessary to set up a Pro Life, not for profit organisation to ensure continuity of service and sanctuary to these animals, where a space has now been created for them to just be.
