Keep one pet warm this winter
Over the past couple of weeks Cape Town has enjoyed a significant amount of rain. As much as we are celebrating the fantastic rain fall, winter is always a challenging time at the Mdzananda Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha. Pets needing medical assistance tend to increase during this time due to many cases of hypothermia showing up at our door. We also see an increased number of broken bones as people tend to drive badly in rainy weather, knocking over animals.
We know that our supporters want to help the township pets during winter but they do not always know how to do so. Our easy and fun Wagging Winter Shoebox drive is the perfect way for you to make a difference in one pet’s life.
During winter our clinic is packed to the brim and all of our pets need special care to stay warm. This winter you can help to keep one township pet warm by packing them a Wagging Winter Shoebox.
Here's how it works
1. Find a shoebox (or any box)
2. Choose which pet you would like to pack for (puppy, kitten, dog or cat)
3. Pack it full of goodies for your chosen pet
4. Drop it off at one of our drop spots
