The SA.MAST Animal Clinic in Khayelitsha is asking for help to try and fix their fencing problem.

The clinic says their fence is now in a worse state after drivers drove into it.

One of the workers at the clinic Xolani Tono, who was showing City Vision the damaged fence, said they had to put rocks next to the fence to prevent vehicles driving through.

He blamed learner drivers practising on Walter Sisulu Road for the damages.

The clinic addresses the causes and consequences of the overpopulation of diseased, stray, neglected, abused or dangerous domestic animals by implementing a free, consistent, focused and goal-driven mass animal sterilisation, treatment and education campaign.

As part of the Mandela month celebrations, the clinic will be hosting an event on Thursday 18 July.

“July has always been a very special month for us. SA.MAST was founded in July 2006 and Mandela month is celebrated. So we’re celebrating two important birthdays in the same month,” said founder and director of the clinic Tamsin Nel.

She said she is calling on people to help them fix the fencing and secure a well-deserved happy ending for the clinic.

Nel said on Mandela Day they are hoping that their needs will not go unnoticed and that up to 20 volunteers will join them.

She said the plan is to split into three teams to dig holes for the fencing poles and attach the wire mesh fencing.
