Animal lovers across the world banded together to make a difference for animals in the Northern Cape’s Calvinia; raising almost R52 000 for a big sterilisation project.
Calvinia, South Africa (15 August, 2023) — Animal lovers around the world set their sights on the Northern Cape’s Calvinia where hundreds of animals facing terrible struggles like hunger and neglect.
Calvinia is known for starlight wonders, so it was only apt that stars in human form worked behind the scenes to improve life for four-legged residents of the town.
Through the Network for Animals‘ ‘Gloria’s Little Acts of Kindness Program’, $2700 was donated towards a big spray and neuter programme (nearly R52000) that saw 108 dogs sterilized. This amount was solely raised by donations all over the world.
Calvinia has been on the Network for Animals’ radar since 2021, but beyond our little town, they lend multiple paws all around the world.
The non-governmental network unites animal lovers with projects that speak volumes to those with paw-shaped spaces in their hearts.
Some of their recent projects have been in Macassar (Cape Town) for the Help a Paw Project which funded a mobile clinic for all-important vaccinations, Greece’s Corinith which helped Frida the dog get the surgery she needed and Kenya’s Naivasha which helped rescued donkeys get the food and vet care they needed.
They have also teamed up with KZN Valley Dogs to help the strays who roam The Valley of a Thousand Hills (an ongoing effort) and have helped TEARS Animal Rescue who are currently looking for volunteers to join their emergency volunteers programme.
