East London Animal Welfare We started almost a year ago as a facebook group, but because of demand we then decided to take the jump from the virtual world right into the real world.
The members of ELAW are a diverse group of people where most of us have our own careers, jobs or businesses but what joins us together is our love of animals and our desire to actually go the extra mile to make a difference in an animal’s life.
It’s really easy to read a newspaper/ magazine or browse the internet and read about the plight of the many many abused, neglected and unwanted animals in our society today……it’s quite another to be brave enough to physically decide to try and do something to help!! Well here at East London Animal Welfare, you really do get a chance to make a difference. We welcome your help and advice and would love you to join us as a volunteer.
We have been involved in many fundraising events to raise much needed funds for East London Animal Welfare. Just to name a few, we were alongside Models Agency who have helped us with our Blazers to Ballgown’s function at Hotel Osner, The Model-thon at Hemingways Mall, our various tea’s and ladies evenings and so much more. We also have the annual Growl-a-thon fun day at James Pearce Park in proud association with Royal Canin.
Our funds raised are often used to pay-off vets bills for the under-privileged, spaying and neutering of animals and feral cats, purchasing of food for cats/dogs etc., especially for our feeding programme run alongside Meals-on-Wheels, enrichment and bird toys for the East London Zoo animals, out-reach programmes at informal settlements to provide them with pet food and flea/tick control medicine and so much more. We will help whatever animal we can, from domestic to wild, cats to horses, the one’s who can’t speak for themselves.
