Vaccination Drive 3!

Reena Cotton vaccinates an old girl, sterilised & inoculated by us three years ago, she’s looking great but without re inoculation is susceptible to disease.

Following the devastating Distemper Outbreak in De Doorns we asked for your support in getting more life saving vaccines into De Doorns’ township dogs!

Thank you to everyone who donated and to the vets & volunteers who gave up their holiday to head into the trenches once again!

Two hundred more dogs vaccinated, dewormed, given NexGard tick and flea treatment and a Hill’s Pet Nutrition food parcel! 

If you can sponsor a township dog’s vaccination for R175 / £8 / $11 / €10 and allow us to head back for Vaccine Drive 4 please use any donation option below and ref: Vaccinate

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