The old dog who was too “Yucky” to live!


Remember Nik- Nak? The death row dog who’s owners demanded he be put to sleep because he was too “yucky”!!

Watch above to see how his story unfolded…

Nik- Nak is still receiving vet care from the lovely Dr Cotton (Vet point, Sea point) and will be going in for x-rays, the snip, and rotten tooth removal this week! All sponsored by your lovely selves!! 

His appalling skin condition was actually due to malnutrition, not mange as suspected, you’ll be glad to know the SPCA will be paying a visit to his former owners! Watch this space..

Special thanks to all of you who donated, shared and prayed! None of this would be possible without you! ?
