“There is a special place in heaven for Nicky, she is an unsung heroine who has dedicated her life at her own expense to animal welfare. Every single day come rain or shine, whether she is well or not, she wakes up in the dark to feed, rescue and care for hundreds of animals. My prayer is that Nicky will one day realize her dream of having her own premises to run a rescue centre.”

Olivia Symcox, Foster mom

“4 Paws does amazing work. Nicky works non stop saving and feeding our dogs in the area. Her services are invaluable and so appreciated by the community.”

Debbie Anderson, Business owner

“It has been a privilege to work with 4 Paws and a Tale Rescue the last 5 years. There are many sad moments and frustrating days, but to see all the happy endings makes it all worth while.”

Christelle Rautenbach, Volunteer
