All of us who began RAWR started our journey in other places. Some of us found ourselves almost unwittingly pulled in to animal welfare by circumstances, having never made the conscious decision to get involved.

Others, volunteered with other animal welfare groups and began to see the enormous problems that those who dared to venture in to the murky lands of animal welfare faced.

We all came together with the idea that rescuing the individual animal - while great for the individual, does not affect the overall problem. There are too many animals and not enough space. RAWR was formed with the idea of tackling the problem at its source - to educate people on the need to neuter and to promote this as the means to curb the tide on the rising over population problem.
