HARMONY Hill Animal Hotel in Sea Park and CANSA Port Shepstone invite dog owners and lovers to join them at the CANSA Bark for Life event at Harmony Hill Dog Rescue on 5 November, from 9am to 11am.

The event is a 1.6km walk for dog owners and their dogs.

Entry is R50 for adults and R20 for children under 12.

Diane Saunders of CANSA Port Shepstone asked participants to bring dog toys or dog food, which will be donated to Harmony Hills.

“Donations can be tinned dog food or biscuits,” she said.

Penny Taylor of Harmony Hill said the walk will be at the farm and there will be a a dog-carting demonstration and demonstrations of a particular dog’s abilities.

Participants are welcome to use the farm dam to cool off in.

“A number of obedience trained dogs will be running free. However, unless owners are sure of their ability to control their dogs, we ask that all animals are kept on a lead,” said Taylor.

Harmony Hill Rescue Havens will be selling cushions made for cats and dogs and others suitable for humans.

“Revenue from the cushion sale will be used to sterilise rescue animals brought to in for rehoming,” she said.

“We will also have an open day at the event where dogs and cats of all ages and breeds will be looking for new homes and where people can adopt,” she said.

For more information on Bark for Life or to buy tickets, phone Saunders on 082 291 9723 or Michelle Carless on 071 119 8802.
