Unbridled Resilience: Rainbow Dash’s Incredible Triumph Over Neglect

Rainbow Dash is finally living the life he always deserved

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

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

Rainbow Dash was in an emaciated and collapsed state when our Inspectors, responding to a complaint about a pony that was being starved with no access to food or water, found him. 

Hero is Not a Noun, It’s a Verb

Rainbow Dash had clearly endured nothing but a life of endless miseries. What pleasure could he have had, living day after day, edging slowly back and forth towards death? But he emerged as a hero against all odds. Although emaciated and collapsed, his spirit refused to surrender. Nourishing meal after nourishing meal saw neglect loosen its cruel grip on him as he fought with the little strength he had left in him. And he emerged victorious.  

Anyone Who Helps an Animal is A Hero To Us

Heroism doesn’t lie in grand gestures, but in the everyday choices to show compassion and extend a helping hand. That’s exaclty what Kim Kolb did by offering Rainbow Dash a place to call home. 

 “The simple act of caring is heroic.” — Edward Albert

Just Look At What Love and Kindness Can Do

Rainbow Dash is a true hero, a symbol of resilience and triumph, proving that strength and courage reside within the most downtrodden of souls. Kim Kolb is a hero for stepping up, for recognising the value of a life and for committing herself to Rainbow Dash’s lifetime care. The generosity and selflessness of all those who contributed to his care is also nothing short of heroic. Thank you for building the bridge between despair and hope. Giving to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, in any form, holds the power to change lives and make the world a better place. 

Thank You Heroes
