THE Kloof & Highway SPCA recently hosted its annual Dog Box Fundraiser recently.

Twenty-four people were locked in kennels from 12 noon on the Friday until 12 noon on Saturday in an effort to help raise funds for the Kloof and Highway SPCA. The funds raised will be allocated to the Kloof and Highway SPCA outreach clinics during 2016 - and this is where the community were encouraged to make a difference and be a part of the team that reaches out to animals living in underprivileged and very poor communities in abject poverty.

The event was a success and well supported by the community who visited the "participants" to make donations and show support - an incredible R331 277.60 was raised altogether by all the amazing Dog Box participants.

The Kloof and Highway SPCA would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to every single person who got involved to help ensure this event was a great success, but most importantly to help the SPCA to reach out to the animals in the underprivileged areas, to give them hope and to be the voice for the voiceless.

"Thank-you to each of the 2016 Dog Box participants for being part of this incredible fundraiser. Your time, commitment and support of this event is so greatly appreciated and thank you for braving the cold to make a difference in the lives of animals in our Community.

“I would also like to say a very special thank you to every person and company who made a financial contribution towards the 'bail' money of the special Dog Box 2016 participants; you ensured that this was our most successful fundraiser of the year. To everyone who visited us during the 24 hours we were locked away...thank you for your support!" said Barbara Patrick, manager of the SPCA.
