Abandoned German Shepherds Find Happiness!


Remember German Shepherds Skye and Zena?

Given away for free when their owners moved, the recipients- unable to care for them- reached out to Sidewalk Specialsfor help!

Thanks to your donations, shares and support, here they are today checking in from their forever homes!

NB: Skye and Zena were rehomed together initially but were separated and placed with male siblings on the advice of a behaviourist.

If you’re moving/ emigrating- please make every effort to take your dogs with you! There aren’t enough homes for the number of dogs out there as it is- to add to the statistics is irresponsible! South African shelters already have enough work on their hands with the overpopulation of township dogs without having to rehome your pet!

If you can help Sidewalk Specials rescue again please use any donation option below and reference: Rescue!

Sidewalk Specials are PBO approved and can issue 18A tax certificates for all donations received!

It’s a miracle that Skye and Zena’s story had a happy ending, most do-it-yourself rehomings do not! Please SHARE and spread this message!

Sidewalk Specials rely 100% on public donations to continue our work.

Please support where you can!
