DOG ADOPTION. INSPIRED ADOPTION RATES IN SOUTH AFRICA ARE LESS THAN 10%. WOOF PROJECT IS CHANGING THE STATUS QUO

WOOF Project is a dynamic ‘pop–up’ mobile dog adoption initiative by Oscars Arc, a NPO born to inspire dog adoption and to save dogs’ lives. It was founded by Joanne Lefson in honour of Oscar, the adopted dog with whom she travelled around the world, visiting 43 countries across 5 continents in 2009 in order to inspire people to adopt shelter dogs, Through dynamic design, innovative marketing and providing an unrivalled dog adoption experience, WOOF Project is dramatically increasing adoption rates and changing the status quo.

Oscars Arc selects healthy adjusted dogs from existing shelters and takes them ‘to the people’ – placing them at WOOF Project – the ‘green’ container that moves within convenient and inspired locations every weekend.

Here, they are given the invaluable exposure they need to get a home – and a life.

The adoption process is both positive and efficient. Those interested in adopting a dog complete a brief application and same-day home check, each dog is ready to go.

Every dog is microchipped, vaccinated and sterilized and WOOF Project also includes a Name Your Price Adoption Fee – and the guarantee that the adoption is a ‘perfect match’, for life.

Since its inception in March 2017, WOOF Project operated for 213 weekends and has taken over 3704 shelter dogs off death row and placed them into forever homes. WOOF Project has drastically increased the Western Cape adoption rate by 41% and aims to increase the dog adoption rates within the Western Cape by 50% in 2023 and to ultimately develop WOOF project as a global platform with the ultimate goal ‘to home them all’.
