Thank you, home checkers

Thank you, home checkers

A big THANK YOU to some unsung heroes: home checkers!  Without you, most adoptions simply wouldn’t happen so it makes a HUGE difference.  An important part of adoptions is home visits/checks – the world has changed and, to ensure the animals’ safety, home checks are a necessary and mandatory part of the adoption process. We understand that this can be nerve-wracking and even make some people feel uncomfortable. That’s why we try to get them organised and done as speedily and…

Thank you, Christo & Dewald

Thank you, Christo & Dewald

A big thank you to Chris and Dewald! It was Chris’ birthday and, instead of pressie, Chris asked for pet food donations. They filled our donation boxes (and then some!) with donated pet food. Wow – thank you SO much to you and your friends. This will really help a lot. People like this – and all our supporters – really reaffirm your faith in humankind (with the emphasis on the word ‘kind’.)  PS: Happy birthday, Chris!

Thank you, Kenridge Primary School

Thank you, Kenridge Primary School

We <3 this! Thank you to Kenridge Primary School aftercare centre for the big tub of handmade doggy biscuits. What a lovely treat for the pooches! Every year, they have a ‘bak en brou‘ project and, this time, they baked doggy biscuits for dogs in need. What a novel idea and one that is truly much appreciated. Our volunteers always travel with dog treats when they do their rounds so they can give a nice nibble to the dogs they encounter – just…

New vehicle: Thank you Rotary Club Tygerberg & Tata Oostenberg

We are over the moon that, thanks to the Rotary Club of Tygerberg, we are the proud owner of a beautiful Tata van! Volunteer Belinda fetched it yesterday (and family cat Bobby inspected it to make sure all is ship shape) and today it had its very first outing – working at the Klipheuwel sterithon! isn’t she gorgeous? Soon she’ll be off to be branded so everyone knows that this is a proudly FAW vehicle with hard-working volunteers and needy animals…

Thank you, Tygerberg Animal Hospital

Thank you, Tygerberg Animal Hospital

A very important Friend of FAW: Tygerberg Animal Hospital, particularly Bellville and Plein Street. They do an immense amount to help us with affordable medical care and – very importantly – sterilisations! In fact, part of the reason why we did so many sterilisations last year is thanks to TAH who offer us weekly steris for township animals at a low price. The TAH staff work very hard and are dedicated to helping the animals. They have gone out of…

A HUGE thank you to Grande Roche Hotel, and Christo & Kobus and Desmond Wells, for their awesome donation of R4000, raised through their fab Mandela Day concert in aid of FAW and Little Fighters Cancer Trust. We are so grateful – and know just where the funds will be going (watch this space, all – something exciting coming soon!).
