Summerveld Haven

Vyaksha Singh and her family have undying compassion for helping animals in need and run an animal rescue home on a smallholding in Assagay. “We started rescuing animals in 2016, and now have 40 dogs and two cats in our care,” says Vyaksha. Summerveld Hound Resort’s aim is to rescue and rehabilitate neglected, abused and unwanted animals. “We are a forever home to our rescues because we believe that they are part of our family, and we could not possibly imagine life without them,” smiles Vyaksha. “We also want to educate society about animal welfare and sterilisation. Once our funding is on point, we wish to go into townships and hold animal welfare workshops. We also are involved in assisting other animal rescues by finding loving homes for their furbabies.”

Now that they are a registered NPO, fundraising is on the cards. “Furniture With A Cause is something we are currently working on, collecting and recycling old furniture and pallets into designer dog beds and outdoor furniture – which we will sell to raise funds. We are also looking to host events in the near future, such as market days and fun walks.”
