Volunteer Jo Ross donated the cost of one coffee, in honour of Skunk, to the Boston Terrier Rescue South Africa, and now all his fans are joining in.


Cape Town, South Africa (07 July 2022) – Jo Ross, a big supporter and volunteer of the Boston Terrier Rescue South Africa, the organisation that played a vital role in the public search for Skunk, has encouraged people to donate the cost of a coffee (R25) to the organisation for its efforts.

The Boston Terrier Rescue SA was at the forefront of rescue efforts in finding Skunk, a Boston Terrier that went missing on Table Mountain for 19 days. The organisation got active on social media to raise awareness and get as many eyes open for Skunk. They even coordinated the assistance of specialised K9 units that help with track and trace of missing animals.

All the efforts paid off, and Skunk was found by the right people in the end. He has since been reunited with his best friend Panda, and very soon, his parents will be reunited with him too.

As mentioned above, Jo thought it would be a great idea to donate the cost of her coffee to the organisation. Since making the suggestion online, hundreds of “coffees” have been donated. This has given the organisation a decent funding boost.

“I would like to ask that we all come together and thank Boston Terrier Rescue South Africa for their unwavering support in the ultimate rescue of The most loved Bostie in Cape Town. Not once did they doubt that Skunk would come home.

I am going to pledge R25 (that’s one Flat White) to welcome Skunk home! I hope that you all will join me and do the same. This will ensure that the love that was shown to Skunk over the last 3 weeks can be passed on to future rescues that need all our love.”

The organisation works in rescuing and rehoming the Boston Terrier breed. Should other organisations have a Boston at their rescue centres or shelters, the Boston Terrier Rescue highlights their stories to make sure they are adopted swiftly.

Networking is essential in the animal rescue world, and it is evident here how well it works. So next time you see a poster for a missing pet, be sure to share it.

The more eyes there are out looking for that pet, the better the chance of reuniting it with family. Our hearts are full!
