Furry patients arrive at our outreach clinic in their unorthodox transport.
Mr Bheko and his son transported their dogs in a wheelbarrow for treatment at our outreach clinic at Khanya Primary School in Phillippi.
Thanks to the efforts of our Education Officers in his community of Samora Machel, dog owner, Mr Bheko, knew about the importance of having his pets sterilised to ensure they didn’t produce unwanted litters.
Sadly, he was unable to pay for veterinary treatment. But he knew that if he could only get the dogs to our outreach session, the SPCA would perform the operations free of charge. Despite having no transport, he improvised by using a wheelbarrow to bring the dogs to us.
We were impressed by Mr Bheko’s determination to do the right thing for his dogs; what a shining example of responsible pet ownership! After reading his story, several generous SPCA supporters donated brand new collars, leads, food, a dog bed and microchips for the faithful hounds.
