Animal rescue organisation needs volunteers

2016-09-15 06:00

ALL animals seem to know when help is needed for themselves and at 4 Paws and a Tale Rescue we see this with many of the dogs we feed. We have just seen it again with a cat that lives at the courthouse in Scottburgh.

We have called him Zorro as you see him now and then you don’t. He is feral and does not allow you anywhere nearer than required, but he has been asking for help from a wonderful lady who feeds him at the court house daily. We were contacted by a lady who had gone to the court for business and there started the “hunt for Zorro”. One could make a movie out of this. He roams and spends a lot of time in the parking area at Checkers, but then strolls to the courthouse to eat.

Zorro has a skin mite that has been destroying his fur, but he is under medication and we will not stop until he is healthy again. To all those wonderful people who have been so concerned about him, please be at ease.

He was caught last Thursday by one of our volunteers, Ollie, and he will be neutered and his medication administered so he can heal and prosper.

Thank you for your concern. It is heartwarming to know that so many residents are watching and reporting when they see things that are not right. Please also understand that most of the 4 Paws and a Tale Rescue gang are employed full-time and rescues and such are attended to after work and in our spare time.

If you wish to get involved, we urgently need ladies to help out at our charity shop in Scottburgh.

Contact me if you can contribute to saving the life of our voiceless ones.
