De Doorns Dog Hit By Truck- SOS!


Over the years we’ve worked on building good relationships in the informal settlement of De Doorns- never have we been more grateful for them then now! 

Late afternoon and our inbox goes ping, a local resident reaching out for help, she’s found Squash frozen in fear on the side of the N1, unable to move with two broken back legs! 

Thanks to her kind heart, the fact she had a rescue to reach out to, Halfway Haven for being our right hand and Boland Dierekliniek for providing emergency vet services- Squash was spared a terrifying, cold, painful night next to the N1! 

With Steri Drive 9 demanding all our finances and more, we are appealing for help to cover the two leg operations Squash needs to walk again! 

The operations along with his vet care and sterilisation will cost approx R17k/ £768/ $1010/ €856!
