tin can town
Blikkiesdorp is an extremely poor township in Cape Town. Some 20.000 people live there in very harsh conditions, and the situation is even worse for their domestic animals. Without proper food, water or treatment, cats and dogs breed all the time, increasing their population and making conditons even harder, in a very unsustainable cycle. The only purebred dogs found there are Pitbulls to be used in illegal dog fights.
To help these animals, a non profit rescue organization called Tin Can Town ventures the violent grounds of Blikkiesdorp every week. They bring food, medicine, vaccines, kennels and volunteer help from veterinarians and dog behaviorists. Many animals are treated there, but some cases need to be brought to a clinic for further treatment.
The organization also investigates who mistreat their pets, so they can find a way to rescue them and find a better home.
