Thanks to our loyal supporters, we are ready to collect every precious drop of rain that falls – and build sustainable reserves to safeguard the future of animals throughout the Cape Metropole.
Response to our Drought Relief campaign has been nothing short of overwhelming! With your support, we’ve been able to install six new 5 000 litre rainwater tanks, seven JoJo tanks, two flowbins, pumps and hoses at our Grassy Park premises. Having our own sustainable water source will ensure there is always enough drinking water for up to 500 animals in our care – as well as water for cleaning our animal centre.
We have also been able to go ahead with the drilling of a new borehole. Water from the new borehole will be used to fill containers and transport them to water stations in remote areas, for wild animals and free-roaming livestock and horses.
It took a near disaster to force us into taking this step, but having our own sustainable water sources will not only safeguard thousands of animals into the future. It will also reduce our operating costs in the long run. Thank you to every individual and business who contributed towards this vital project. Your kindness is literally a life-saver!
