We thought Sparkles had her happy-ever-after, until the distemper virus snatched her away!
Having only had one puppy vaccine, Sparkles was susceptible to the disease and had to be humanely euthanised.
As we saw distemper cases spreading throughout the De Doorns township, we called in Vetpoint and our wonderful volunteer vets to get to work on pushing back against the outbreak.
Last Sunday 450 dogs were inoculated, dewormed, given NexGard tick and flea treatment and an antibiotics course. They were also provided with a Hill’s Pet Nutrition food parcel and collared to ensure booster shots can be administered next month!
Can you help us vaccinate another 450 dogs?
For only R175/£8/€10/$12 we can vaccinate a dog against distemper, rabies, parvovirus, adenovirus, and parainfluenza virus!
To make your donation go even further, NexGard South Africa will match your vaccine with a free tick and flea treatment, Hill’s Pet Nutrition will provide a free food parcel, Sidewalk Specials will deworm and provide antibiotics and our wonderful vets will volunteer their time for free!
Please use any donation option below and Ref: Inoculate
Sidewalk Specials are PBO approved and can issue 18A tax certificates for all donations received!
Huge shout out to the Flemming Family Foundation for your support in helping us achieve the first 450 vaccinations! And to Vetpoint, Four Ways Vet, the Cape Animal Fertility Clinic and our vet assistants- you’re heroes one and all!
