About Woodrock Animal Rescue

Woodrock Animal Rescue was founded in 1992 by Nicholas and Estelle Meldau, whose focus, passion and drive made their animal rescue vision a reality.

The Rescue Centre originated in the suburban areas of Woodmead and Khyber Rock, hence the name Woodrock.

We are now based on 8.5 hectares in the beautiful Hennops River Valley in Pretoria Rural.
