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.

Christmas Shelter Lunch & Food Drive

Christmas is fast approaching and along with it comes the annual AACL Jhb Christmas Shelter Lunch for the animals in our care. This is a special time where our supporters join the staff for a morning of spoiling and treating the animals.

This year we are combining this festive event with a pet food drive. Each month hundreds of animals enter our Johannesburg facility for many reasons, these include animals that are confiscated from abusive homes, strays and those from homes that sadly can no longer look after them. These animals consume over 1300kg of dry pet food monthly, excluding wet food and treats, at a huge cost to the League.

We are challenging all corporates and private individuals to assist us in reaching our goal by collecting bags of dry pet food, although wet food and treats are always welcome. The challenge will culminate on 9 December 2018 at our Christmas Shelter Lunch. We can arrange collection if you cannot drop off at the Jhb branch.

Should you not be able to join us on the 9 December but still want to help by financially donating R500 for a kennel or cattery occupants or R100 for an individual animal our bank details are:
