IT was Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day on the 23 February and the 1000 Hills Chef School pupils baked up a storm making yummy dog biscuits for the dogs in the care at the Kloof and Highway SPCA.

To celebrate Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day, the dog biscuits are available at the reception area at SPCA for the public to come along and spoil the dogs in the SPCA care by giving them the treats. There is no charge for the biscuits but donations are welcome.

The first dog biscuits were developed in the mid-19th century by American manufacturer James Spratt. He came up with the idea after he visited Liverpool in England, where he observed stray dogs hungrily tucking into ship’s biscuits. Nobody seems to know the origins of Dog Biscuit Day, but every canine in the world knows the best way to celebrate it.

Barbara Patrick, manager of the Kloof and Highway SPCA says, “Thank-you to the 1000 Hills Chef School for their ongoing support and the regular visits to our SPCA to spoil the animals in our care.”
