Cape Town has been ravaged by storms over the last few days and many parts of Khayelitsha have been drenched and torn apart.

Last night in the pouring rain this abandoned young mommy gave birth to five puppies in the howling wind and on a soggy and muddy blanket.

Sadly, when we found her this morning two of her five pups had already died. At first, when we tried to reach out to her she picked up one of her dead puppies in her mouth and tried to make a break for it - scared to death that we meant her and her pups harm. We can see that she has had a really tough time – over and above the ordeal of being abandoned and giving birth in the storm she has healed burn marks all over her body.

Dead Puppies

Luckily, we won her over and managed to get her back to our clinic in record time. All our heaters are on, hot water bottles have been placed underneath her blankets and she has had her first meal in a long, long time.



Amidst all the chaos and heartbreak our
second vehicle has broken down completely.
We are trying to source a new engine,
but so far have been unsuccessful.

A very
kind donor has offered to contribute
R38 000 towards the purchase of a new vehicle.

We still need to raise another R20 000
to buy the vehicle.

Please, please help us!
