Platter treats for furry friends

One couple came with their three spaniels all the way from Witbank to walk around the dam.

Little Paws Big Hearts (LPBH) participated in the Umuzi Week of Festivals on Saturday, 8 October.
The unpredictable weather hampered the participation by the public a bit with fewer entrants than last year.
The dogs, however, enjoyed taking their owners for a walk around the dam.
There were all kinds of breeds – big and small. One of the Queen’s Corgis also joined in the fun. The smallest was a very small Yorkshire terrier.
There were a stall with the most beautiful treats for the dogs. It is even edible for their owners. Little cupcakes and cookies all handmade and decorated. Delightful coffee mugs were on sale and all the profits went directly to the vet bills.
Some dogs are adopted and acts as ambassadors for LPBH. Flaps is one such dog, he wears his ambassador’s jacket with pride and love to visit the crèches in Govan Mbeki.

LPBH made it a priority to help animal owners from poor communities care for their dogs. These communities do not always have the financial means to really care for their animals. LPBH provide basic care and training in the care of animals. People are taught how to wash their animal, give them enough shelter and how to feed the animals.
Sometimes an animal would need to be rescued just to save its life. These dogs (mostly) are then nursed back to good health. Only then will they look for a new home for the animals
LPBH rely entirely on donations from the public and really need help. They have a huge veterinarian bill as well as shortages of food. Please contact the Bulletin if you want to help.
The Bulletin challenges Little Paws Big Hearts to join in our blood drive this weekend. SANBS is having their annual “Geboei om te bloei” blood drive.
