KOLOMELA MINE calls on the broader community and other businesses to show their support and make a donation to the Postmasburg Animal Forum towards the upkeep of the shelter.

This follows the mining company heeding the annual request from the forum for donations.

The Postmasburg Animal Forum is a local non-profit organisation that takes care of abandoned and homeless animals.

The organisation runs on donations from the community.

Kumba Iron Ore spokesperson Nikki Wetzlar said in a statement:

“Our pets are our best friends and sometimes our companions in life.

“But what happens to those four-legged friends that are left abandoned or homeless?

“They are placed in the care of a local animal shelter.”

This year Kolomela has made a donation towards food for the animals and other items such as blankets.

Contact the shelter on 082-447-0215.
