January the 24th is Change a Pet’s Life Day

In honour of this special day we would like to share Lily’s story. Many of you might know of Lily and her battle for justice. Now the story has concluded with a happy ending… On the 20th of October 2011 the dog named Warrior (renamed Lily) was pulled from 1.5 meters under the ground at Luhlaza Secondary School Khayelitsha. The school’s kitchen cleaner called the incident in to the Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha who immediately rushed to the school to save the dog.

Magnum finds his Forever Home: The Pit Bull Boy that stole all our hearts

Magnum arrived at the Mdzananda Animal Clinic at the start of October 2015. His owner brought him to Mdzananda one morning to be euthanised.

A Volunteer's Story: From Belgium to Khayelitsha, with love

In 2012 I visited South Africa for the first time with the University of Antwerp to learn about wildlife. Being in South Africa was such a special experience. I loved every moment and I decided that I had to go back one day. When I finished veterinary school, I started looking on the Internet and found Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. After reading about the good work they do, I knew I had to volunteer with them. I emailed asking if I could volunteer and was welcomed to the clinic. I started working as a volunteer on 13 October 2015 (having committed for six months, I will go back home on 10 March 2016). I have already learned so much! The veterinarians are very helpful
