Welcome To Hout Bay Seal Rescue Centre

We urgently need monetary donations for fish and pup milk, paint for the centre to be painted, electric fencing, and medium size dog crates. We also need a large freezer unit to store at least 125 boxes of fish a month. If you are able to assist, please call or Whatsapp Kim on 072 988 5193. She can also be contacted via our contact page.


A donation of R1000.00 was received from Russell Duckworth.
