All hands on deck at Mandela spay day

Dr Karin Wilson, right, and Margie van der Berg, hold the warm fleece doggy jackets donated and handmade by Gretchen Carruthers and Yvonne Wellmann-Thompson, for each animal. They also made fabric masks for the pet owners.

Gigi Roper works closely with Raithby farmer Attie Hofmeyr, his sister Elise, and their close friends Ricky and Rosa, to alleviate the plight of many animals in the area, with the Farm Paws charity. Dr Karin Wilson from Teva said: “We sterilised 25 pets yesterday and loved every minute of it! We haven’t been able to be together as a team since Covid entered our lives, and it was so wonderful to be giving back to our community as a team of Tevarians. Working with the Farm Paws team was such a pleasure. They were very organised and it made our job so much easier and the day flowed perfectly. We are really looking forward to supporting this great organistion through the next year.” Teva is planning a raffle prize every month, o keep raising funds, so keep an eye on their Facebook page. You can also add an “Add Love” donation of R10 to your invoice every time you pop into Teva, and all proceeds will go to the Farm Paws project.
