How you can help . . .
Become a Ranger
We are looking for like-minded animal-lovers from all across the island to become Community Animal Welfare Rangers. Those successful applicants will be responsible for the upkeep of the supplies of food and water at their local shelter, as well as giving some of their time towards the education of children in their community. This will all be voluntary work, and Rangers will have the education from, and back-up of, the entire Happy Tails team in all that they do. Caring compassionately for animals is one thing, but doing something to better their lives directly is another. This is a giving of time, energy, and love, not of money.
Feed an animal
Rs250 per week will keep one dog fed for as long as you wish, for its life if that’s your choice.
This donation can be made via standing order.
Sponsor an animal
Rs1,500 is the monthly cost of sponsoring a particular dog.
This is you caring for a specific dog in our care, where you can support and follow its entire life.
Sponsor a Sterilisation Day
Rs25,000 - Rs30,000 will pay for the sterilisation of up to 40 animals.
Each animal that is neutered today is 5 or 6 less to be born tomorrow.
We prefer to sterilise than to kill, but it costs money.
Sponsor a Shelter
Rs50,000 as a one-off payment will sponsor a Shelter in your chosen community. This is an ideal opportunity for local businesses, as each Shelter will be openly visible within the community. Your name will be attached to a truly noble and powerfully humanitarian project, one not seen in Mauritius before. If you want to shout ‘progressive’, then such sponsorship would certainly shout that message out loud and clear for any company wishing to demonstrate such obvious commitment to their community.
Shelters will be 1.5m X 2m in size. They will be aluminium-framed, with timber-deck flooring, corrugated metal sheeting as walls, and a tin roof, all of which will be rooted to the ground by simple concrete piers. These are easy to assemble care of informed and considered design, as well as cheap to build, kind to the eye, and entirely fit-for-purpose. They will carry the CAWS logo, beside which will be ONLY the name and logo of the sponsor, all in plain view.
Make a one-off donation
If you would like to give, but just this once, any amount is a good amount, as its more than we had before your generosity. The best ways to make one-off donations are via PayPal, cheque, or bank transfer. We have a PayPal donation link on our website, happytailssanctuary.com. Cheques should be made payable to Happy Tails Foundation, and sent to Happy Tails Sanctuary, Choisy, Baie Du Cap, La Savanne. Our bank details for transfers are:
