January/ February Newsletter 2017

We are almost two months into the new year, and a busy two months it has been. From dogs involved in hit and runs, to burns and biliary and finally to a dog that’s managed to deglove his paw. These animals have kept Oscar and Elvis running non stop.


Today, the 28th February marks the 23rd World Spay Day. This is an annual campaign started by the Humane Society International, to highlight the importance of spay and neuter. To celebrate this day, Animal Allies will, once again, embark on a four week program together with 27 Veterinary Clinics. Our aim is to sterilize as many dogs and cats as possible, from the three informal settlements that we are actively involved in. This program will culminate with an on-site sterilization day on the 2nd April in Katlehong, all sterilizations, hopefully in excess of 100, proudly sponsored by Bromhof Veterinary Clinic. We will attend to a further +/-500 animals on this day. All will be vaccinated, dewormed and sprayed for ticks and fleas. All animals will leave with a bucket of food and a collar and leash. In order to make this day a success, we need your help. If you would like to volunteer your time or know of any vets, vet nurses, AWA’s or anyone that would be interested in helping us make a difference, please put them in touch with us either telephonically 0765115451 or by email karen@animalallies.co.za If you can not be there and would still like to contribute to this day, please consider donating food (cat and dog), blankets, collars and leashes or tick and flea treatment.


This month we thank all the ladies. Ann, Lorrayne, Urshila, Sara & Shirley very kindly donated a magnificent hamper for raffling. This stunning hamper has 2 bottles of sparkling wine, chocolates, sweets and snacks, it’s even better than the last one. Tickets are on sale and we hope to raise more money than before. All money raised will go towards our onsite sterilization day in Katlehong.  Please buy a ticket or three and you could be the lucky winner!!! One ticket is R20 and three tickets are R50.

And then there are the ladies from Sandringham Gardens who have very kindly volunteered their time to knit blankets for our kiddies at the creches in Zandspruit. Considering winter is just around the corner, this offer couldn’t have come at a better time. Help us keep them busy and the kids warm by donating double-knit wool. Just give us a ring and we’ll collect.
