This past weekend saw the inaugural Cape Town Pet Upliftment Project (CTPUP) launch at the city’s iconic De Waal Park.
Park-goers were able to watch as the Cape of Good Hope SPCA Mobile Clinic, in partnership with IdentipetSA and the atFrits Pet Hotel and Daycare, provide much needed care to some of the city centre’s disadvantaged pets.
The day started at 9am and within minutes we had our first customer arrive to receive their first vaccination and microchip.
The park’s well known faces soon arrived with their beloved pets. Clayton, a longtime resident of De Waal Park, was delighted to bring his four dogs to the clinic so all could be vaccinated against diseases – atFrits also ensured that each dog received some stylish and cozy jackets to protect them from cold nights.
Thanks to IdentipetSA, we were able to chip 14 dogs. This gave owners the peace of mind to know that if ever their pets were to go missing, they now have a greater chance of being reunited with their best fur-friends.
In total 17 dogs were vaccinated on the day, with 2 dogs being booked in for sterilisation.
We look forward to seeing CTPUP go from strength to strength with the support of the animal loving community of Cape Town.
With your support over R2300 was raised on the day to help continue this vital service and ensure all of the city’s pets are kept healthy and happy.
