The animals that come to our sanctuary come from across the greater Durban area, and each has a story to tell. Some are ill, some have been neglected or abused, and all are homeless. But once they’re at our animal haven, at what is so much more than a no-kill animal shelter, they receive everything they need, physically, emotionally and psychologically, to thrive and find good homes.
For those few who are never ready to take that next step, Hillside Haven is their safe haven for life. Hillside Haven is a home to differently-abled cats, dogs, rabbits, birds and reptiles. All the animals are sterilised and are fed only the best quality foods and health supplements.
Hillside Haven was founded in 2009 by Dr Taryn Turner, a Homoeopath with over 20 years’ experience in animal rescue and rehabilitation. With her background in natural medicine and holistic health, the animals who often come in with very compromised immune systems quickly flourish and thrive.
