August Newsletter

Our fifth sterilisation campaign in Katlehong has been by far the busiest and most successful of all our days. Despite the cold, we were met by queues of people, either coming to have their furry companions sterilized, vaccinated, dewormed and treated for parasites or treated as they were concerned about their pet.

An amazing 175 animals we sterilized preventing hundreds of thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens. The vets treated 31 animals onsite and another 11 were admitted to hospital for further treatment. A further 781 dogs and cats were vaccinated, dewormed and sprayed for ticks and fleas.  Wow what a day. By the end of the day, we were all exhausted, but at the same time extremely satisfied by what was accomplished in just one day. It just comes to show what a bunch of caring individuals can achieve when their hearts are all in the right place.

Thank you very much to every vet and volunteer who worked their butt off to achieve what we did. Also a big thank you to Supreme Pet, Mondeor Homebake, Cipla and WVS who donated dog food for all the sterilized dogs, cupcakes for the kiddies and parasite treatment respectively.

We have managed to treat 9 of the 11 patients that returned with us on Sunday. Our treatments ranged from Parvo, to worms, to a Cherry Eye, to abscesses and tumours. All patients have recovered well and majority are already back home. Unfortunately two dogs had to be put to sleep as their tumours had spread and the cancer was already in their lungs. They would not have made the anaesthetic and the very hard but kindest decision was made to help them cross the rainbow bridge. If only all our cases would have happy endings, but I guess life doesn’t work like that and we were just happy that they were not left to suffer.

Danger was hit by a car and needed a femur head removal. Unfortunately there was not much hope for Danger to walk again. He is such a sweet and gentle boy that has won the hearts of everyone and we really wanted to give him another chance of being able to walk and run again. We have been doing intensive physio for the last few weeks and we are finally making progress.

“It’s the first of September

You know what that means

Time to give your cupboards

A good “Spring” clean.

We know it’s hard work

And it’s the last thing you need

But we at Animal Allies

Survive on your good deeds

So pack up those clothes, accessories and shoes

Throw in a book, some cups and some tools.

Please help us fight to save animals now

And for that we’ll applaud you and give you a bow”

As always, we couldn’t do the work that we do if it weren’t for you our wonderful supporters. Thank  you to each and every one of you.

Happy Spring Day!!
