Upper Highway granny Elizabeth Mazeka visited the Kloof and Highway SPCA with her employer and her two male Africanis worried about their welfare.

She explained to staff that her employer had offered to help bring her beloved dogs to the SPCA as she could no longer keep them - they were chasing her neighbour’s chickens who has threatened to harm them if she did not remove them.

So she spoke to her employer about the situation and the difficult decision was made to sign them over into the care of the Kloof and Highway SPCA to be re-homed.

Lisa Mörck SPCA PR and Outreach Officer said the staff tried to coax the dogs from reception to the kennels, but they would not move.

“Elizabeth told us their names were ‘Two Dogs’ and turned to leave as Two Dogs starred anxiously as their owner walked away,” she said.

“The staff knew then they would do whatever they could to reunite Elizabeth and her dogs.”

Mörck said this was not just any love story and Sarah van Heerden, SPCA Operations Manager contacted supporters to help.

“Two Dogs and their story quickly became known to the staff at the Kloof and Highway SPCA and Guy Murray from Container Conversions said he would help and soon afterwards Erika Velissariou came forward to say she would help too.

“The plan of action was for the Kloof and Highway SPCA to visit Elizabeth's home and see if the property could be fenced, if it could Guy and Erica were prepared to donate funds towards the fencing that would ensure Two Dogs could not get out.Justus van Rees from Green Dot Fencing was contacted to do the fencing.”

On 7 July Two Dogs left the Kloof and Highway SPCA to go home with their devoted, caring owner, offering another happy ending. - Supplied.
