Who we are
It’s no secret the Eastern Cape is one of the poorest provinces in South Africa and Sea Vista, like so many townships in our country, is a place where residents face a daily struggle to survive. Families, trapped in poverty, struggle to feed themselves, let alone their animals. Within Sea Vista and on the verges of busy roads skirting this settlement, not only hungry dogs but cows, pigs, chickens and goats, roam for food.
This desperate situation motivated the establishment of St Francis Animal Rescue – a charity run by a small group of volunteers, all of whom are passionate animal lovers.
Our focus is on working with people who live in Sea Vista – adults and children – and teaching them the value of loving, respecting and caring for their animals.
