As a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting kindness and preventing cruelty to animals, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA takes in animals that have been abandoned, abused, or neglected, and works tirelessly to rehabilitate them and find them loving homes.
And Big Boy’s story is a shining example of the dedication and perseverance that our staff and volunteers put into making sure that every animal in our care finds a happy future.
It all began with a letter from Linda Marnitz, who expressed her desire to help find Big Boy a loving home. She offered to pay for his food and board while we worked to rehome him, and her sister was an experienced networker who was confident that they could find Big Boy a new family.
We were grateful for their offer of help, and it’s a reminder that ordinary people can come together to make a difference for animals in need.
And after several weeks of searching, and with Linda’s help, we found a family that seemed like a perfect match. The adoptions manager felt comfortable with the new home, and Big Boy’s new owner, Ariyaana, was overjoyed to welcome him into her family, saying, “Thank you for all of your help and support through this process.”
We’re so grateful to have been a part of this heartwarming story and to have made a difference in the lives of both Big Boy and Ariyaana.
This is just one example of the kind of work that we do every day at the Cape of Good Hope SPCA. We’re dedicated to ensuring that the animals in our care find loving homes, and we work tirelessly to make sure that they’re happy and healthy while they’re with us.
We believe that every animal deserves a chance at a happy life, and we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to make that a reality.
The story of Big Boy is a reminder of the difference that we can make in the lives of animals and their new families. And with the help of people like Linda and Ariyaana, we know that we can continue to make a difference in the world.
