On World Animal Day, which is marked today, Wednesday October 4, the Woof Project was launched in the atFrits Dog Park in Cape Town city centre.
The unit ‘Mothership Woof’ will serve as a centralised dog adoption centre during the week, enabling city workers to visit during their lunch hours and to hang out and de-stress with adoptable dogs.
An initiative of Oscars Arc, a registered NPO dedicated to inspiring dog adoption and saving dogs’ lives, Woof Project launched its pop up mobile initiative earlier this year, taking dogs on death row from existing shelters and giving these dogs the invaluable exposure they need in order to be seen and adopted.
The project, which kicked off in March this year, has already homed 304 dogs.
The dogs at Mothership Woof in the atFRits Dog Park will be available to view Monday to Friday between 12.30pm and 2pm.
During weekends, more dogs are ready for adoption at the mobile dog adoption unit over all holidays and weekends. All the dogs are vaccinated, sterilised and ready to go to their new home after a brief home check.
