THE Animal Protection Network (APN), in partnership with the Brackenhurst Veterinary Clinic, is calling out to the community to please donate money towards the sterilisation of pets from underprivileged households, in an attempt to reduce breeding.
On October 7, APN Alberton is doing their second Spayathon with the Brackenhurst Veterinary Hospital doctors and staff. Hopefully, it will be even better than the first one (which took place on March 3) in tackling the breeding and overpopulation problems of pets in the Alberton area.
The pets that they will be sterilising are from under-privileged, homeless or unemployed households and, even though they are asking only R300 to sterilise a pet, it has been noted that some folk still cannot afford to pay this.
APN is appealing to the community of Alberton to please sponsor towards a sterilisation. Plenty of animals need to be sterilised on the day and the public’s help will be greatly appreciated. Donations of food, collars, leads, blankets and snacks to feed the owners who will be waiting with their pets on the day will also be more than welcome.
Please contact Zuerina Venter on 082 850 9842 if you would like to donate or have any questions.
APN thanks Alberton from the bottom of their hearts for the wonderful support they always receive and invite you to pop by to say hello on the day.
