Teacher’s Pet

8th Mar, 2017
I began working as a teacher at Republiek Primary in Windvogel, Bethelsdorp (Port Elizabeth), in 2015 and I soon noticed the many stray dogs in the area. They broke my heart and I started bringing leftover food from home or the school’s nutrition programme for the dogs that visited the schoolyard. After a while there were about five stray dogs in front of my classroom waiting for the leftovers – and one of them was a small tricolour female called Mamma. ...read more

Just Jasper

3rd Mar, 2017
In early April 2016, Cat Care Port Elizabeth (CCPE), an organisation caring for feral cats, came across a pale ginger-and-white cat with a horrific injury. It appeared that the cat had somehow gotten his left foreleg caught in his collar and, because the collar had a normal buckle and not a quick-release one, he’d been unable to get the leg back out again. ...read more

On the 29th of August 2016 I was sitting in my car, terrified. I was waiting for the minutes to pass until I could see my mom – she was fighting for her life in ICU. To try and distract myself, I started scrolling through Facebook. A friend of mine had shared a video. I opened it. As soon as it started to play, I was utterly in love. ...read more

Ready-made family

24th Feb, 2017
It all started one morning while I was scrolling through Facebook and spotted two animals – Gracie and Cleo – looking for a new home. The picture of the most beautiful dog and cat cuddling together stole my heart and the fact that they couldn’t be separated just added to their appeal. ...read more

Reunited with Rolo

20th Feb, 2017
It was a normal day at my husband’s plant nursery in 2011. We’d noticed a chocolate Labrador and a Rottweiler running through the nursery, having a ball of a time. Being very friendly, we’d assumed it must have been a client’s pets who had come along for the day. Come lunchtime it was very quiet and we noticed that the Rottweiler was gone but the Labrador had stayed behind. We asked the clients who were there but no one claimed him. ...read more

Sparky was a gift from my niece, who told me that he travelled in the engine of her neighbour’s car from Table View to Sanddrift some 10km away on Christmas Eve seven years ago. He was just a little kitten who’d found himself a very warm, cosy place to snuggle in. Unfortunately, it was in the engine of a stranger’s car and the stranger decided to drive back home after his Christmas celebrations – with Sparky clinging on for dear life! ...read more

Lovely Lola

14th Feb, 2017
I live on a farm in Blue Hills with my brother, sister-in-law and my two nephews. They have nine dogs, I have cats, and when Lynn, my sister-in-law’s sister comes to the farm, she brings her four dogs – making a total head count of 13. I am the “unofficial” dog walker and love nothing more than taking them into the fields to run and play, the more the merrier as far as I am concerned. ...read more

Je Suis Jolie

10th Feb, 2017
My orderly life with my (then) two therapy dogs, 14-year-old Standard Poodle, Daisy (who sadly passed away last year), and rescued ginger-bearded Labrador-mix, Dixie, was totally disrupted by the arrival of a disabled kitten, whom I named ‘Je Suis Jolie’ (‘I am pretty’). ...read more

Hog hero

3rd Feb, 2017
As the world’s only painting pig, Pigcasso is an original. Rescued from a typical industrialised hog “farm” in the Western Cape in which pigs live in merciless conditions, Pigcasso is one lucky, fine swine! From potential pork chop to hog heaven at Farm Sanctuary SA in Franschhoek where she resides, Pigcasso loves the good things in life: Eat. Sleep. Eat. Repeat. ...read more

Lost and Found

7th Feb, 2017
My name is Mel and I reside in Lotus River in Cape Town. I am an animal lover and always go out of my way to pick up stray animals on the road and take them to the SPCA, which is close to us. I have five Labradors and one Maltese Poodle-mix that I found as a stray. Two of my Labradors were adopted in 2015 from a friend who just couldn’t handle having two busy “escape artist” dogs. ...read more
