Paws on the Promenade

What an event! On the 21st of February 2016 we hosted our very first Paws on the Promenade dog walk fundraiser. What a turnout!

If you missed out enjoy this video to get a glimpse of the day...

Bubbles, saved from euthanasia, now a happy pet

Mbombosi was brought to the Mdzananda Animal Clinic with severe mange and open sores from scratching. Her owner brought her to be euthanized because she no longer wanted her because she looked ugly. Dr Blessing and Sr Ros took one look at her sad little eyes and wagging tail and refused to euthanize. Instead she was admitted to hospital where she was treated for the mange condition. This girl, who we imagined would be difficult to rehome, immediately found her forever home. Liezl Watts, a lady who applied for a three legged dog named Sisi two months prior, fell in love with Mbombosi when reading about her story in our newsletter. Mbombosi stayed at Mdzananda for nearly three months while
