Animal Clinic Khayelitsha

The Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha recently celebrated its 21st birthday and a number of companies and donors gave them great gifts to celebrate. You can too!


The Mdzananda Animal Clinic is a permanent, NPO, veterinary council registered animal clinic in the Khayelitsha township in Cape Town. The Animal Clinic recently celebrated their 21st birthday and were gifted some great presents.

“We would like to send you 21 packets of our Jenny Morris biscuits in celebration for this milestone” – Vondi’s Holistic Pet Nutrition

The clinic was founded in 1996 and sees around 700 animals a month. They also work to re-home strays and educate the community members on the importance of caring for the animals in the community.

“We believe that a community that loves animals is a healthy community. By looking after an animal people learn responsibility, respect for life, compassion and non-violence. These are valuable attributes which flow over into everyday life.”

Sadly their biggest donor has had to pull funding due to the global financial woes. The clinic refuses to give up and will continue to work to save the animals. See all their information below to see how you can help them this year.

The Animal clinic has a wishlist so if you would like to help them celebrate their milestone, you can donate the items on the list below.

– Food
– Leads and collars
– Cat litter
– Veterinary consumables
– Black bags
– Washing powder
– Raw honey (to treat wounds)
– Coconut oil, virgin organic, cold pressed
– Orthopaedic pins

The clinic also has a small charity shop and is always looking for goods like Books, clothes and DVD’s to sell.

You can contact them here to make arrangements for donations.

Mdzananda turns 21 years old

At the end of 2017 Mdzananda turned 21!Twenty-one years of providing veterinary healthcare to dogs and cats in the community and helping tens of thousands of animals and their human companions to lead happier, healthier lives. In celebration the International Fund for Animal Welfare created a video. Enjoy the video with us and celebrate!SOME SAD NEWS is that turning 21 comes with its own challenges. Due to the economic state in Europe and due to budget cuts the International Fund for Animal Welfare has commenced a funding extraction plan. Of course we are sad to be loosing IFAW as our largest funder but we are extremely grateful for the many years of financial support and partnership.Now we need YOUR help.The funding reduction has left us with a very large funding gap. We need 3000 new Paw Members (monthly donors) to sign up, each donating R100 per month to cover the deficit. Please sign up at or get in touch on
