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.
