People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA)
The PDSA does exactly what its name implies: it cares for sick animals. In Johannesburg, about 2 000 a month are cared for, owned by people who cannot afford the services of private vets. Its Johannesburg operation includes a hospital in Mofolo South, Soweto and satellite clinics in Pimville and Diepkloof, as well as mobile clinics that treat injured or sick animals in informal settlements and other areas where private veterinarians do not have premises. All services except vaccinations and sterilisation are carried out on a donation basis - owners are asked to pay what they can afford - but no sick animal is ever turned away. They see mostly cats and dogs but also horses, cows, goats, sheep and pigs - usually brought to the Mofolo hospital, although sometimes the PDSA horsebox is sent to fetch them. The PDSA does not run a shelter, nor does it inspect premises.

It does, however, do school visits - more than 50 a year - educating young people about the proper and humane treatment of animals including what to feed them and how to keep them healthy.
