HARVEYS PURPOSE FOR PAWS
VACCINATION & ANIMAL OUTREACH DAY IN DIEPSLOOT TOWNSHIP
On Saturday the 15th of December 2020, we headed to Diepsloot Township for our first ‘PURPOSE FOR PAWS’ vaccination and animal outreach day for the incredible organisation
The work that Lee and her incredible team does is truly inspirational and from the moment we started our foundation we always wanted to assist her organisation and the furry friends of Diepsloot Township to the best of our ability.
After our first HBOLF fundraising event, we had raised enough money to vaccinate 100 dogs and we new straight away that The Dogs Trust was the organisation that we wanted to assist and so 'PURPOSE FOR PAWS' was born.
Our vaccination exceeded anything we could have ever hoped for. It was truly the most incredible and inspiring day from start to finish. The community was friendly and welcoming and made us feel right at home. It was incredible to witness so many amazing humans that love their furry friends, but do not always have the means to support them fully. This is what makes the work that The Dogs Trust do on a daily basis in Diepsloot Township so important.
We vaccinated, dewormed, did tick & flee dips and fed 100 dogs (and a few cats). We also assisted the children and Diepsloot community with food, clothing, toys and more. We had the most incredible volunteers and organisations come together to make this day happen, and of course none of this would have been possible without you guys, our incredible donors that rallied together to make sure we had enough food and goods to assist every single furry friend and ‘pawrent’ that came on the day.
We are so excited to announce that this will be a annual event held every year for Lee & her incredible team from The Dogs Trust.
