AS most lives are filled with Christmas celebrations and excitement at this time of the year, it is also a very tough time of year for the Kloof and Highway SPCA.

The number of unwanted animals and strays increases drastically as the festive season approaches. The increase in animals thus impacts on the need for extra food for the dogs and cats.

A plea for food was placed on social media by the Kloof and Highway SPCA and a kind member of the public, Robyn Mackay, who works abroad, decided she could make a difference to the lives of these homeless animals by donating tinned dog food to the Kloof and Highway SPCA.

Her family lives in Cowies Hill near Main SPAR at Sandy Centre in Pinetown. Mackay’s mother, Noelene, shops at Main SPAR daily and thus Robyn approached Grant Nicholls, owner and managing director of the Main Group of SPARS to assist with her request. Nicholls has always been an avid supporter of the Kloof and Highway SPCA and jumped at the opportunity. Robyn bought R5 000 worth of tinned dog food at a discounted price from Main SPAR and SPAR also assisted with the delivery of the food to the Kloof and Highway SPCA.
