HARTENBOS DIEREHOSPITAAL FONDSINSAMELING – HAWEKAT TRUST – 13 AUG 2011:
Die inwoners van Hartenbos, Dr FR de Graaf en wergemwers is aktief betrokke by die voorsiening van kos en die nodige versorging van die Hawe katte. Hul het onlangs n fondsinsameling gehou spesiaal vir die katte, en om die publiek in te lig met praatjies oor katgedrag en hoe om hierdie katte te help. Die praatjie was deur Dr Ferderique Hurley van RSG se Dieremaniere gedoen.
Scratzme wou graag n bydrae lewer vir die uitstekende projek, en het n groot kat krap paal geskenk vir lootjies. Die wins van die verkope van die krappale verskaf aan die Hartenbos Dierekliniek het na die trustfonds gegaan om die in die toekoms die hawe katte te kan versorg. Die fondse ingesamel deur die krap paal skenking alleen was omtrent R2000. Die fondsinsameling was n groot sukses, en almal het dit baie geniet om meer te leer van ons wilde kat kolonies. Wys jou net wat gedoen kan word met vele hande en wilskrag! Ons wil graag almal bedank wat betrokke was by die geleentheid vir die uitstekende idee en die passie wat toegewei was aan die projek. n Ware inspirasie vir ons almal!

We had the amazing oppertuinity to be a part of something great! In the morning when we arrived the skies just started clearing up, and the volunteers and cattery staff where already at work – clearing out old cat furniture from the enclosures, washing the blankets and preparing the site for us to get to work.
Throughout the day we met some amazing volunteer workers, one lady was on holiday from Germany, and signed up for volunteer work at the SPCA during her vacation in SA, putting back into the community and giving back to the animals. This has been a dream of hers for years to come explore South Africa and at the same time enrol in volunteer work.
The staff moved all the cats to another location while we refurbished their scratzing poles and indoor scratz-corners, and provided each enclosure with a brand new item.
Once all the work was done – they brought all the cats back to their newly decorated homes, and that was when the realization of doing my bit kicked in. The cats were content and happily playing with their new toys – the sound of total bliss…
It gave me a little bit of insight as to why we care, and why we are prepared to go the extra mile for our animals.
I want to thank the SPCA again, for allowing us to be a small part of the great job they do!! What an experience…
Being a volunteer in any project is not a responsibility, but rather an oppertuinity for each of us, created by courageous orginazations! Dont miss out on the oppertuinity – it might not present itself again..
