K9 Unit Healthcare Fund

The SAWC’s anti-poaching successes on the ground have increased exponentially in recent years. Our K9 Unit, combined with well-trained field rangers, aerial support and community engagement, makes for an innovative and successful four-tiered approach to countering poaching. Our on-leach and off-leash scent and detection hounds work well in a rugged and challenging terrain. Breeding and training ensure that they give 110%, whether it’s a training exercise or a live deployment.

To perform at their best, it’s vital the dogs are kept at peak condition. The costs  of running this unit and keeping the team employed - especially given the impact of COVID-19 - are high. A medical care fund for the dogs will help the K9 unit cover our vet bills as and when emergencies occur, ensuring the dogs always have access to the best care. 

Each dog incurs an average annual medical care cost of R5000, and we have 35 dogs. That means for R175 000, ALL our dogs will be cared for!
