CAPE TOWN – Staff at the Cape of Good Hope SPCA paid tribute to superstar, Diamonds, with an emotional send-off on Monday 7 June following his successful adoption. The most recent of SPCA celebrities garnered his own online following during his recovery after he survived a dogfighting incident last year November.
Diamonds made his first debut on Cape of Good Hope SPCA social media in mid-December 2020. The heartbreaking story sent a shockwave through the hearts of many from all over the country and abroad.
In the final weeks before his adoption, like most celebrities, Diamonds fell victim to the spoils of stardom and subsequently picked up weight from all the treats and special gifts he received. This despite his exercise routine and advanced hydrotherapy sessions.
He was started on a special diet to get him to his optimum weight.
Instagram user, Mariska Vermeulen from Durbanville took ownership of Diamonds earlier this week. The first images and video clip of him settling in on his first day arrived soon after.
