Sleepathon 2018

Time to whip out your sleeping bag and camping gear for the TEARS Animal Rescue 2018 Sleepathon! Put your empathy into practice and spend a night at our shelter with rescued dogs or cats for an unforgettable sleepover.

The TEARS Sleepathon is a fundraising event and your R200 ticket is a non-refundable donation to secure your spot for this year and counts towards your final fundraising figure. There are multiple fundraising levels (each with it’s own rewards), and we ask that Sleepathoners strive to collect additional donations to an allocated goal. 

Funds raised from the TEARS 2018 Sleepathon will tangibly help us where we need it most: covering the costs of sterilisation for pets in low-income communities, upgrades and maintenance at our shelter, purchasing much needed equipment for our welfare veterinary clinic and being able to reach out, impact and save more lives!

Share a special moment with shelter pets and raise funds and awareness to help their future! Visit for more information.
