Teva veterinary clinic in Somerset West is holding an outreach programme for Mandela Day, and will be spaying as many pets as they can, on Saturday July 28. Members of the public are asked to help, by donating leads, collars, blankets, flea and tick treatments and dewormers. Or, donate R67 towards the spay/neuter campaign. For more information, contact Teva at 021 851 3554. Pictured is beloved Linki, a venerable little green-eyed queen, who “strayed” into Bolander editor Carolyn Frost’s world 18 years ago – it was love at first sight.
