As you know, Network for Animals (NFA) works around the world to improve the quality of life for animals living in impoverished communities.
In South Africa, NFA, with our partner Fallen Angels, rescues hundreds of dogs from lives of misery, hunger, and illness. Our rescue missions are frequently in dangerous gang areas. Often, we can’t take good photographs of the poor creatures because we need to get them to safety before the gangsters find us.
One day recently, we rescued three dogs and photographed them in a studio – so you can better see the poor souls we help. Denzel, Vanessa and Chopin are classic examples of why…
Denzel was found starving and badly affected by canine scabies (mange) while attempting to escape nasty children who were throwing stones at him. We rescued him and are paying for his care.
Vanessa was rescued from an abusive home in a slum area. The owners had crushed her paw, and that of another dog so they couldn’t run away. We confiscated several animals found at the house.
Chopin was dumped at the side of the road. We rescued him, are paying for his medical care and will help find him a good home.
The areas where we found the dogs are extremely dangerous - our team has been threatened and shot at while rescuing dogs, but we will NEVER stop saving lives.
There are now 350 dogs who live at the Fallen Angels shelter in South Africa’s Western Cape and we care for them all. As many as possible are rehomed.
We really hope you will find it in your heart to make a donation to Network for Animals today, so that we can continue our vital work.
For the animals,
Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!)

P.S. Denzel, Vanessa and Chopin were all rescued on the same day and they are just three of the tens of thousands of dogs who need our help in South Africa. Thanks to friends like you, we were able to save them. Please give as generously as you can so that we can help more and more animals in desperate need.
