Animal Rescue plea for collars and leads.
They also manage a full time clinic from premises in Ottery. The Animal Welfare Assistants are constantly in need of decent collars and leads.
Many of their clients cannot afford either. They often bring their dogs to the clinic with rope, wire, telephone wire and string around their dogs' neck, often with sore red and bleeding wounds by the time they get to the clinic.
They are appealing to anyone who is willing to donate collars and/or leads to please drop them off at Norgarb Properties
or to sponsor a collar and lead for R50, which they will purchase and distribute on your behalf.
Your donation can be done via Zapper or into the ARO bank account: Animal Rescue Organisation ABSA 632 005 cheque account 4086080569 email firstname.lastname@example.org
with proof of payment.
Water Restrictions and Tariff Hikes
The water situation in the country remains dire. As a result the City of Cape Town is asking us to please water our gardens and wash our cars using ONLY a bucket or watering can.
NO hosepipes or irrigation!
As of 1 November fines will be issued for those found contravening these restrictions.
From December the City of Cape Town will be increasing the tariff for water much as they have done with electricity - so the more you use the more you pay.
