The reality is that most of De Doorns’ informal settlement animals have never seen a vet…
Due to years of unchecked breeding the township is full of dogs & cats, some owned, some stray, most adopt a human and eek out an existence alongside them!
Private vet care simply isn’t affordable or attainable!
For those that would say “take the animals away”…
Where would you like us to take them? Cape Town shelters are full to overflowing and have been for years! Every animal we rehome is another shelter animal that will never leave its cage!
We have no right to remove someone’s animal just because they’re poorer than us! The De Doorns residents blow us away daily with their tenacity and resourcefulness when it comes to caring for their pets, we couldn’t walk a mile in their shoes and it’s a honour to help them!
Sidewalk Specials are providing care packs for each animal we see: sterilisation, deworming, tick & flea meds, mange treatment, inoculation, antibiotics, Hill’s Pet Nutrition and a kennel where needed!
One care pack= R450 (£24/$29/€26) please head to:
