Thank you, Grande Roche Hotel

Thank you, Grande Roche Hotel

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!). The show was really lovely (and one of our volunteers was lucky enough to be able to attend) and we hope…

‘Dog meets girl’ photoshoot raised money for kennels

‘Dog meets girl’ photoshoot raised money for kennels

THANK YOU to Shannon and Annalize for organising not one but TWO photoshoots, and raised R1000 towards much-needed kennels! (And, of course, thank you to the people and their pooches who went too!)                    

We’ve had a makeover!

We’ve had a makeover!

Following a number of break-ins and other nasty acts of vandalism, we realised that we had to make our ‘home base’ in Fisantekraal more secure. It also desperately needed a facelift as graffiti was spreading… This may seem unimportant, but, we believe that it’s hard to expect respect from anybody when you’re surrounded by filthy phrases and ‘drawings’, not to mention it being very unpleasant for our volunteers to work there and for any decent person to bring their animals…

Fencing: Steel & Pipes for Africa (& anonymous donor) to the rescue!

Fencing: Steel & Pipes for Africa (& anonymous donor) to the rescue!

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to a generous donation from an anonymous sponsor and the kindness of the awesome Dean Gouvea of Steel and Pipes for Africa who supplied the materials and did an absolutely superb job building the ‘cage’ fence we so desperately needed. We were getting broken into and our containers vandalised increasingly. We now have strong fencing which encloses the area, and metal cages to protect the treatment room window and the solar water…

Thank you Tygerberg Animal Hospital (TAH)

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the vets, vet nurses, and orderlies of Tygerburg Animal Hospital Bellville and Plein Street for all their hard work and care on an ongoing basis, particularly with our sterithons. They offer several greatly-discounted sterilisations to us weekly and donate their time and space (Plein Street branch) free of charge once every few months for sterithons.  Sterilisations are crucial to our work and are our number one priority so their hard work is…

Thank you Tygerburger newspaper

Thank you, Tygerburger newspaper, for regularly placing free adverts and articles for us and helping to promote our cause.

Thank you, Instant Tags – kennel drop

Thank you, Instant Tags – kennel drop

Thank you SO much Instant Tags for donating an awesome kennel & a bunch of other goodies! Inge Schubert, of Instant Tags, visited us yesterday afternoon & accompanied us to the home where her kennel was destined to shelter a very lucky dog, Keelah. Keelah is lucky in more ways than one: a couple of weeks back we were called to help – something was ‘sticking out of her back end’. We arrived to discover a badly prolapsed uterus –…
