Buckaroo Sterilisation Drive

Award-winning fine art photography and philanthropist Marlene Neumann, continues to make waves with her BUCKAROO PROJECT. Since she founded her fundraising initiative, Marlene and her dedicated team, have made a huge positive impact for animal welfare organisations in the Border region in the Eastern Cape.

Marlene and her Buckaroo Team are now raising funds for a sterilisation drive in informal settlements in and around East London. The Buckaroo project has sterilised hundreds of dogs funded by Buckaroo with the help of the ELSPCA and local vets. “I believe if we can slow the birth rate down the local shelters will feel the relief in years to come.”
The huge numbers of strays puts a great amount of strain on animal shelters who are already buckling under the pressure to assist animals in need.
