During lock-down we will lose significant funding usually earned through our on-site vet shop, consultation fees and adoption fees. In the first three weeks of lockdown we lost close to R108,000. In the second two weeks of lockdown we estimate to lose another R72,000.

Any donations are greatly appreciated
