STILBAAI NEWS - One of the ways in which Community Animal Rescue Society (CARS) serves the community, is in assisting with finding new permanent homes for animals which were found in undesirable circumstances and removed to foster care.
Stilbaai CARS coordinator Nicole Botha shared some of their success stories with South Cape Forum.
A beautiful brown dog with soft eyes, previously called Lexi, went from being chained by her first owner and never knowing if she will be fed or have a blanket to sleep on, to a happy and loved animal. Renamed Gigi, she now stays indoors and is a valued member of her new family.
Bruno belonged to a gentleman who passed away in November last year. His wife did not care for the dog and kept him alone and chained in the backyard. Fortunately for Bruno, CARS stepped in. Today Bruno's happy face as he plays at his new home says it all.
Little Snowy also went from a sad and lonely dog who was not wanted by her owners, to being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, thriving in the love of her new owner.
CARS is a non-profit organisation which functions in all the towns of Hessequa. They are hugely dependent on donations from the community and an article 18A tax certificate can be issued for any financial contribution. Items such as food and blankets are also always needed.
Contact the head coordinator Sandra Williams Lotz on 082 962 1831 to get involved.
