4 PAWS and a Tale Rescue will open a charity shop in Thira Village­ just off the main road, 142 Scott Street, on 1 December.

Nicky Koekemoer, founder of the organisation, said the reason for opening the shop is because there are many dogs up for adoption and funds are badly needed, which, hopefully, the charity shop will generate.

4 Paws has a charity shop in Amanzimtoti, but it is far as 4 Paws is based in Scottburgh. The NPO is responsible for rescuing and rehoming abandoned, abused and neglected animals in Scottburgh and surrounding areas, and also provides medical care and shelter for strays and animals in townships and underprivileged areas.
“We have waited a long time for this opportunity and are very excited about it. The number of animals in need has increased dramatically during the past year, and as we rely solely on the generosity of the public,” she said. 4 Paws also has a website where people can see which dogs are up for adoption.

“We appeal to those who would love to help to come with us on a morning feed and see what it is that we do every day.

“The community is welcome to donate unwanted household and garden items or dog food and to support the new shop, someone will be there on Saturdays from 9am to 12pm during November to take in any donated items,” said Koekemoer.
