Recently, we were alerted to a desperate situation in the South African township of Khayelitsha – 100 dogs and 28 cats at the Mdzananda Animal Clinic faced starvation because of critically low food supplies. These kinds of situations are the exact reason we established our Little Acts of Kindness program – so of course, we jumped into action to help.
The impoverished Khayelitsha township is home to approximately 300,000 pets, and with high unemployment rates, many people struggle to care for themselves let alone for their animals. Now, the situation has been made even worse because of COVID. Mdzananda provides low-cost veterinary treatment to the animals of the community and teaches people how to properly care for their pets.
Thanks to your donations, we were able to provide the clinic with enough food to feed the animals for at least a month and a half, easing the pressure on their reserves and keeping little bellies full. It’s only with the help of your generous support that we could step in and make a difference for these animals.
Thank you for continuing to enable us to reach out and lend a helping hand to animals in need all over the globe. They are so grateful to you!
