WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?
here's how we allocate funds.
Sterilisation is a cause close to our heart, as it saves so many lives. Mass sterilisation is a funding priority for DDFD.
Unexpected costs are inevitable when rescuing animals. DDFD keeps our paw on the pulse to assist shelters with these hefty unpredictable expenses.
Day-to-day costs of running an animal shelter quickly skyrocket. We allocate additional funds for shelters to use as they see fit in operational costs.
Feeding so many hungry mouths is a major expense for animal welfare organisations. DDFD assists with this through donations of food and cash.
WHAT IS DDFD?
our origin tail.
Downward Dog for Dogs began as a once-off charity yoga event in 2016 where shelter dogs were the guests of honour. Since then, we’ve grown from being the first event of its kind in Cape Town into a registered non-profit organisation (NPO# 261-781) - a dedicated cause for paws. We raise funds, in-kind donations, and awareness for animal shelters; while also promoting adoption and volunteering.
Despite our name, DDFD is for all kinds of animals. We believe every animal deserves to be safe and loved. While animal shelters are working towards this, they cannot operate without support.
We know people want to help, but are unsure of how to work this into their busy lives. DDFD serves
to bridge this gap by providing a fun platform to connect, using what we know and love - yoga.
here's our mission.
