Take a walk for a great cause and help us save life and limb!

There are so many animals in need in South Africa, and for most animal lovers the desire to help every furry little soul can be extremely overwhelming. While the help of donations is always much appreciated, this National Dog Day SPCA Cape Town is making it even simpler to show your support for animals in need with the Paw Feet Love campaign.

Broken bones often leave the SPCA Cape Town team heartbroken because they don’t always have the tools needed to mend them. For the animals, this means that saving their lives can often mean them losing a limb. In the worst instances, where there are severe injuries to more than one limb, or when breaks are located in an area where the SPCA’s current X-Fix remedy cannot be applied, lives are being lost.

To help these little furballs, the SPCA Cape Town needs your help to raise R150,000 for the purchase of a plating kit to enable them to mend every bone fracture possible and save every life and every limb of every orthopaedic patient who needs them.

The Paw Feet Love campaign, sponsored by Bravecto gives you the opportunity #savelifeandlimb by putting your best foot forward (over and over again) to help animals in need of life and limb saving surgeries. It’s really easy, in fact, all you have to do is register online, pay a nominal R100 entrance fee, and then raise a minimum of a further R400 by getting your family, friends and colleagues to support you on your walk! For those who raise R600 or more you will automatically be entered to win a Salomon voucher to the value of R2,000!

Once you’ve reached your goal, the SPCA will send you a commemorative Pawfeet Love campaign T-shirt and a Pawfeet campaign bandana for your four-legged friend.

On the 22nd or the 23rd of August, just ahead of National Dog Day, take your furry best buddy for a walk wearing your commemorative items. The time or distance is irrelevant – you are simply walking to honour victims of cruelty and neglect whose broken bones prevent them from doing the same.

Remember to take a selfie at some point during your walk and share them on social media using #savelifeandlimb and #Bravecto. Send the SPCA’s animals in hospital your love virtually by showing the one-handed love sign (bend your two middle fingers down and extend your remaining fingers and thumb while keeping your palm facing forward) or if you can, use both hands and join them together to form a heart shape.

Saving lives is priceless but it does cost money, please sign up, take a walk for a great cause and help save life and limb!
