The asltetrnative name for this society is “Charolais Beestelersgenootskap”. The Charolais has its origin in the region of the Bresse-Plateau in the jura mountains of Eastern France. From the plateau of Bresse the breed spread to the fertile Charolles area. Here the name Charolais came into use. The Charolais was confined to this area for many years. In 1773 Claude Matthieu moved his herd to Nievre and this herd is today looked upon as the fountainhead of the modern Charolais. During the 19th century the Charolais spread to central France and even so far west as Vendeé, where a local milk strain was developed.Continue reading →
The Cat Association of Southern Africa was affiliated to WCF on 01 March 2007 as a club under patronage. It was accepted as a Full Member Club by majority vote during the WCF General Assembly meeting in August 2008. CASA does not have a full time Registrar or Office and all administrative work is done on a voluntary, after hours basis, so no telephone number is available.
CASA provides a forum for International Championship Cat shows and a WCF Registration Service.
All exhibitors are bound by the show rules, as published on the WCF website, show entry forms and catalogues.
All breeders have to comply with the code of conduct and registration rules published on the WCF website.
We cannot guarantee the kittens registered by us and do not arbitrate in disputes between breeders and buyers of kittens.
Although we are essentially a club for cat lovers, with the best interest of all cats at heart, CASA does not have the infrastructure to inspect breeders and cannot attend to general complaints about breeders, exhibitors or members of the club, nor non-members and general cat welfare.
The Cat Federation of Southern Africa is a voluntary non-profit organisation existing for the purpose of co-ordinating all aspects relating to the cat fancy in South Africa.

The Arabian Horse has been classified as a distinct sub-species having characteristics differentiating it from other horse breeds. These differences are evident in the skeleton, conformation and intelligence of the horse and distinguish the Arabian horse wherever it is found. The Arabian horse is a specialised desert product and a close descendant of the primitive stock of Arabia. Historically, the Arabian has been recognised as a horse of beauty, intelligence, courage, endurance and romance. Bred and reared in close contact with man from the earliest records and existing in mutual interdependence, the keen brain of the primitive animal has been developed by such close human association. The superior intelligence of the Arabian horse has been celebrated in a thousand anecdotes. The Arabian is typically gentle, affectionate and familiar to the point of being troublesome.Continue reading →

The Animal Welfare Society of SA offers a full range of veterinary services to the underprivileged and disadvantaged communities of Cape Town. The clinic is open seven days a week, including weekends & public holidays. We have full equipped theatres where we do sterilisations, orthopaedic and other operations. At any given time we can house more than one hundred sick or injured animals. We are committed to sterilising every animal that comes through our hospital in order to contribute to reducing the number of strays. Our Inspectorate team also respond to calls for any animal in distress, including injured strays, dog fighting and animal abuse. We also have an adoption department. We take in strays and unwanted pets to find them suitable and loving homes. Each animal is medically assessed, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for ticks and fleas, microchipped and sterilised and we do very strict homechecks. We have a growing number of happy adopters and pets in the greater Cape Town community. The Society does not receive state funding and depends entirely on donations.Continue reading →
The Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL) protects tame and wild animals from suffering and shows people the best way to take care of them. Its Headquarters are in Johannesburg, and there are branch offices in Bredasdorp, Bronkhorstspruit, Cape Town, Durban, Ladysmith, Pietermaritzburg and Port Elizabeth.
All sorts of domesticated animals are kept at Headquarters. Some are there because their owners no longer want them and have asked the League to find another home for them. Others are cared for there because their owners hurt or mistreat them. AACL staff look after all these animals and make sure that they are comfortable and well fed. When the animals are strong and healthy, new homes are found for them. They are not sold. People, who give them good homes, adopt these animals by making a donation towards their upkeep and neutering.
