A conversation later and we learn that the rest of Alida’s litter had perished, most likely from disease and exposure, that this was the mother dogs third unwanted litter in two years and that not one puppy had survived.
This is the reality of unchecked breeding in South Africa’s townships, where there is no access to, nor means to afford, vet care and sterilisation.
Fast forward one month and not only is Alida happily homed but her mother received a ‘Care Pack’ at Steri Drive 9 and as such is now sterilised, inoculated, parasite free and has a warm kennel to sleep in!
All is well and it’s all thanks to your support!
