Help-A-Shelter, 1 December 2017

Update on our HELP A SHELTER food drive :

Our hero of the week is Beulah Schoeman of Lonehill, such an incredible animal lover and totally committed to helping as many animals as she can.  We were so emotional over her very generous donation of a whole trolley filled with food at Pick n Pay Lonehill,  a total of 7 big bags of chunks and 10 large tins.  We cannot express enough appreciation to Beulah.  Her incredible donation will go a long way to ensuring fewer hungry tums at the rescue centres these holidays.











Paw salute to Beulah for her donation of a trolley loaded full with food.  Our collection point at Spar Fourways Gardens continues to lead the way, with Pick n Pay Fourways Crossing a close second.

This week we have a bin in prime position at the entrance to Pick n Pay Lonehill that cant go unnoticed

To all the animal lovers that have remembered our loyal four legged friends at this challenging time of year, we are so grateful for your donations.

We shall be creating a Christmas tree of food at the end of our drive, and we shall post photos to show all that has been collected

With this being the season for giving, how about challenging your work colleagues to all bring in a tin of food for our unfortunate four legged furkids that do not have homes.  While they wait for their own families, lets try and make their stay at the shelters a little happier.  A tasty meal each day can go a long way to making this more pleasant for them.


There are three options for your pet which will keep them safe, secure, stress free and comfortable:

  1. Hire a petsitter who pops in daily or stays at your house
  2. Take your pets on holiday with you
  3. Book them into a boarding kennel


Petsitters are a very popular option these days.  Some pet sitters will watch your pet at their own residence but most will come by your house if your pet is more comfortable at home.
