Losing access to a social media page is a frustrating experience and for CLAW, it has meant their portal for sharing educational content and connecting with supporters; as they navigate this issue, they remain committed to supporting animals in need.


Update: The page has since been restored and CLAW are back online, connecting with supporters and sharing their message.

Johannesburg, South Africa (13 October 2023) – Like something straight out of a modern horror movie, Cora Bailey the head of CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare) shared a week ago, that the charity’s Facebook page had been lost.

They are doing everything they can to restore the page but it is taking time. In an effort not to have vital services interrupted, we hoped that sharing the update would help supporters understand why they have not seen anything from the team in the past week.

“The page has been in existence for many years, and there is nothing that goes against community standards.

We tell the truth, often graphic, but we also do a huge amount of education on the page, which has been a lifeline for many, and a way of communicating for many who report cruelty in areas where others fear to tread.

We will continue to try and recover our page, but in the meantime, this is an important notice for anyone who loves what we and other rescues do.

We would appreciate your support”

The Facebook page may be gone for now, but some of their very best stories are not! The hard work the team has done over the years has been shared by us here and those stories will live on Good Things Guy for as long as the internet exists. You can read them all here.

Do not fear, while the team works on rebuilding their social presence, you can keep in contact via the organisation’s website. Listed are the emergency numbers needed as well as the usual hotline so you can stay connected.
