Redhill School celebrated one of their own who started a dog walking business to enable her love of helping animals in need.


Johannesburg, South Africa (20 September 2021) – Redhill School shared a story about Milla Janks, a grade 4 pupil at the school. They shared how she started a dog walking business so that she could donate the money for the animals at the SPCA.

Milla and her half-sister have a deep love for animals, so they started a dog walking business in their neighbourhood. Milla and her sister decided to save all their earning and, when they had enough, to donate them to the Johannesburg SPCA.

Her school were so impressed by her dedication to helping animals; they celebrated her actions on their Facebook page.

“You know those people who quietly get on with the business of leaving people, places and animals better than they found them? No fuss and no need to glory – just a quiet determination to make a difference?
Milla Janks in Grade 4 is one of those people!

In May last year, Milla and her half-sister started a dog-walking business in their suburb. The girls saved everything they earned and, on Tuesday 31 August, handed a charity contribution to the Joburg SPCA in Booysens. Milla also fed the farm animals and personally visited every dog and puppy on the premises.

The girls continue to be popular weekend and holiday-time dog-sitters in their area – and are still saving up for charity! We think they are both PHENOMENAL human beings and want to be just like them when we grow up!”

We also want to be like Milla when we grow up!
