Cape Town- All dog’s safe in foster!

What a difference a day makes! And look what can be achieved when a community works together! ?

Acts of kindness: from the lady who loaned us her stable to house 7 strange dogs overnight, to the man who lent his landcover so we could transport them, to the vets (Vet Point, 28 Kloof Rd, Sea Point: 0214348831) who stayed behind two hours after closing to treat 7 welfare cases at short notice, to the people worldwide who donated towards their treatment, to the families all over Cape Town who opened up their hearts and homes to dogs who the day before had been considered worthless! ?

We had all dogs rescued, vetted and safe in their foster homes by 10pm yesterday! ❤️

I may be so tired I feel like I’ve been hit in the face by a high speed train, a train with teeth, but my face still has a big grin on it! Cus no matter what the media says- people are good! ??

Let me show you some examples:

Benji’s foster waited up till 9pm for us to get there, now he’s got his own wardrobe and artwork dedicated to him!

Little Minni is now known as Tiny Tim, he got to go to the office with his foster mommy today and has decided he much prefers chicken to pellets any day..hmm.. ?


Cleo’s new foster mommy actually came all the way to Vet Point to collect her! Now she has a new brother to play with and sleeps on a feather duvet! No more concrete floors for you sweet heart! ?

Rasta and Tommy got fostered together, we’ve had reports of tail wags and everything! ?

Apparently, shy though they are, they have found this magical place called ‘the kitchen’- it just keeps giving them food!! ?

Little Lola has early stages of tick fever but she’s on lots of antibiotics and is getting all the TLC a dog could ask for after her foster mommy rushed to Vet Point to save the day! ??



Freddy may have arrived to us a little beaten up, somebody decided her head was chew toy see, but she’s loving her new Staffy foster brother and has decided to become queen of the sofa for her stay…?

So there you have it! A reason to smile! ?

All dogs featured still need to find their forever homes! So please SHARE! All are good with other dogs, gentle with kids & deserve their very own human!! ❤️
