Chanté van Rooyen’s Daily Wheelchair Trek to SPCA for Ailing Dog Milo

Contrary to popular belief, our work is not Government funded.

Hearts for Hope celebrates the collective power of animal loving hearts.

Chanté van Rooyen has been making a daily pilgrimage to The Cape of Good Hope SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) with her beloved dog Milo, who is currently undergoing outpatient treatment for parvovirus.
For five consecutive days, Chanté and Milo have embarked on a 45-minute wheelchair trek to the SPCA, with Milo travelling in comfort and Chanté sweating it out to go the distance for him.

The sight of her coming in our gates has given us a much-needed daily dose of inspiration because it reminded us of the incredible power of the bond between a pet and an owner who cares and just what lengths some pet owners will go to for the well-being of their animals.

Thank you Chanté for your dedication to Milo, for nursing him and making sure he never missed a treatment no matter how difficult it was for you. We know he’s going to be an amazing companion for your young son and we wish you very many happy memories with him at your side.
