Maclear Animal Centre
The Maclear Animal Centre (MAC) is an animal
welfare organisation based in Maclear but we plan to do outreach, sterilisation campaigns etc in Ugie. Our
kennels will eventually be based in Maclear (but over the years and with the help of
volunteers we could one day expand to Ugie).
The present Section 21 NPO members are Yolanda
Sing, Helen Lechmere-Oertel, Jacky Lamer, Larraine Schmidt, Jeff Sing, Dr.Mike Magaisa (State Vet Maclear) and
Linda Mqokoyi (Community Services ELM).
MAC has a Standard Bank Business Account and
welcomes donations to raise funds for the equipment, medicines and products we need to do the animal health and
welfare work in Ugie and Maclear. As a Section 21 NPO, MAC will have an accountant managing the finances and
will be fully audited on an annual basis by an independent financial auditing company.

TO IMPROVE ANIMAL WELFARE
Our pets and livestock are an important part of our lives and our
communities and we'd like to see a big change in the animal welfare standards in and around Ugie and Maclear.
HOW? Education, outreach, clinic and shelter
kennels, vets on board etc. Our
communities need access to primary animal health care - through
actions like the development of a mobile animal clinic, animal welfare outreach and shelter facilities for lost,
injured or homeless animals.
We’d all like to see fewer mangy dogs running in the streets of our
towns looking for food to feed unwanted puppies. We need to treat the
mange (brandsiekte), vaccinate against rabies and other terrible diseases, we need to help people to sterilise
their dogs and cats and we need to TAKE ACTION against cruelty and neglect. Improved Animal Welfare Standards - that is the change we'd like to see in Ugie and
Animal Centre (MAC) is now a registered Non Profit Organisation – No:2009/020325/08. We’ll be on Face Book soon and will get a website one of these
months. We plan to run a sterilisation campaign in Ugie in the
first quarter of 2010 – we’d love volunteers to help us out for the 2 days. If you want to be involved please call me, Helen on 045 932 1862, or 083 421 6872 –
or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d like to help in another way, you can make a donation to MAC, no matter how small, it will all
add up to help us get out there and make a change to the lives of individual animals in Ugie-Maclear. MAC’s bank
