How SAINTs Saves Animals

While the acronym means “Supporting Animals In Needy Times”, anyone who knows the organisation agrees that SAINTS is run and supported by people who save, shelter and sterilise animals out of a deep love for them and their ongoing well-being at all times.

SAINTS was founded in 2008 by Vivienne Elliott and her son Jordan. They started small and hosted a book sale to help well-known animal shelter FORA to purchase food for their many shelter animals. They were able to handover over R5 000 to FORA.

They started selling donated goods and using the funds to support animal welfare organisations. It was heartwarming seeing the money raised, go directly towards the animals they loved so dearly.

SAINTS was formalised as a non-profit company (NPC) in 2012 with two co-directors; the SAINTS journey grew from book sales to clothing, ornaments and oddment sales – and much more. In 2012, the SAINTS Charity Shop was opened at North Riding Square, Bellairs Drive, Northriding.

You can check out the online charity shop here or visit them between 10 am and 3 pm at shop 19a, Northriding Square, Cnr Bellairs and Blandford Dr, North Riding.
