THE Watercrest Mall Angel Tree Initiative saw two deserving animal rescues, KZN Valley Dogs and the Mazarat Animal Rescue, receive donations as their official beneficiaries this December.

This year the Mall donated R10 000 to the initiative, with a R1 000 from Waterfall Spar and other donations that were brought in by the public.

Centre Management spokesperson Charis Chearlton said that the Angel Tree initiative ran from November 12 until November 30 and saw them gather the needed necessities for the charities.

“We are just grateful to lend a helping hand to the charities that were chosen this year,” she said.

Chearlton said that the amount of work that these rescues do for the animals is amazing: “You can imagine what’s it like, taking in a stray animal, and you have to take care of it like a young baby.

“As a centre, we thought that it will be much more easier if we help them with the food because there are still other things that need to be done for the animals besides feeding them.”

Waterfall SuperSpar store manager Marius Muller said that, due to their love for animals and being in a community that loves them too, they had to lend a helping hand.

“We have an obligation to look after the animals so that’s why we decided to help in anyway we can,” he said. Muller also added that they assist in donating or sponsoring many animal rescues because they feel the need to help such organisations.

Chearlton said they appreciate the donations from both the community and also the Waterfall SuperSpar.
