Welcome to the Animal Anti-Cruelty League

The Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL), has been protecting and caring for animals since 1956. It is South Africa’s second largest independent Animal Welfare Organization, relying entirely on the generosity and goodwill of the animal-loving public for financial support.

We are an organization that gets involved with all aspects of animal welfare: provide shelter for abandoned animals, promote an efficient adoption programme, prosecute animal cruelty cases, run welfare hospitals for lower income groups, visit underprivileged areas with fully equipped mobile clinics and regularly address schools and clubs on the challenges of animal welfare.

We have branches in the major centres of the country – Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Ladysmith and the farming area of Bredasdorp. Please note: The ANIMAL ANTI-CRUELTY LEAGUE its branches and/or Member Societies are NOT PRO-LIFE ORGANIZATIONS and are certainly not ANIMAL RIGHTISTS.

READY TO ADOPT?

One of the rewards of adopting a rescued animal is that you are saving a life and giving a deserving animal a new home. At the Animal Anti Cruelty League we believe that life is better shared, and the best expression of this is to adopt a pet.

WODAC 2018

AACL Johannesburg was invited to attend the 2018 World of Dogs and Cats (WODAC) pet expo held at Gallagher Estate from 20 – 22 July 2018. It was a great opportunity for us to interact with the public and create awareness for the organisation. Our theme this year was “Lesson from geese” and was a great success with both young and old alike.

A draw was run over the duration of the show with the main prize being a fantastic weekend away at the beautiful Willowcreek Trout and Nature Reserve in Dullstroom. Well done S Bradford we hope you enjoy your weekend away!

Many of the visitors to the stand, were the owners of cats and dogs adopted from us over the years and it was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones throughout the weekend.

Throughout the weekend visitors were treated to a showcase of many of the beautiful breeds of dogs and cats available, with the daily demonstrations from the top obedience and agility dogs and the beautiful Lipizzaner horses in the main arenas. The various halls of containing cats, reptiles, birds kept the public entertained and enthralled for many hours, with many stands selling the newest products available in the pet industry.

Finally, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Brian and Sharon Blades for the sponsoring of our WODAC 2018 stand. Your generosity and continued support towards our organisation have spanned for many years and we salute you!
