Originally intended as a sanctuary for wildlife animals, Twala has expanded to include domestic animals. Sheep, goats and pigs mingle with a variety of domestic fowl, including chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. The sanctuary works closely with the local community, educating and assisting people with their animals. Every week up to forty dogs are sterilised, fifty are vaccinated and treatment is carried out on sick and injured dogs – for free. All “patients” receive a free meal of chicken and porridge.
